Cheap vs Crappy Flooring
In today's price driven marketplace you can still get good deals on flooring but cheaper isn't always a better option to save money when thinking about the longevity of your flooring. The cheapest options for flooring usually can be found at Home Depot but do you know what your paying for? The thickness, warranty and surface durability, isn't something you can buy for under a buck.
- Are you sick and tired of spending money on flooring in your home?
- Does your flooring choice display no durability, no matter which option you choose?
- Do you also want flooring ideas that are worth your money and time?
- Would you love to have a material for flooring that has amazing practicality?
If you have answered yes to these questions, then it is plain as day that what you need is vinyl flooring!
Many Americans choose this option because it has all the qualities mentioned above. For instance, vinyl roll flooring is perfect for both residential and commercial application. Cheap vinyl flooring is available in three different types, plank, tile and sheet form. Regardless is it's vinyl flooring rolls or luxury vinyl plank or tile, you can rest assured your investment is working for you when you choose Armstrong Flooring. In this article we are going to discuss luxury vinyl tiles and planks.
Vinyl Planks or Vinyl Tiles – Which One Should You Choose?
Honestly, it will depend on different factors. Both types have their own plus points and disadvantages that will make one work for you and the other not so much. Depending on the amount of traffic that an area will receive is one such factor. Then you will also have to see the rate of exposure of your flooring to different hazards and staining agents. The cost is yet another factor, for instance, since vinyl planks will cost you much less as compared to vinyl tiles.
The best part about vinyl flooring is that no matter which type you choose, you can end up with flooring that looks sophisticated and versatile even when it doesn’t cost as much as the other options do! Armstrong offers some luxury vinyl flooring options that you might want to check out!
The quality of vinyl plank flooring can elevate a room or devalue it. You might not be able to discern between a good vinyl plank and a bad one but to a practiced eye, they are as different as apples and oranges! A good quality plank vinyl, such as one from Vacenti or Konecto, will stand out amongst the others based on the following factors:
- Degree of wear
- Quality of register embossing
- Visual layer quality
- Edge treatments
- Selection size
- Company reputation
When it comes to vinyl tiles, they are much more easily replaced. If someone spills a liquid on a tile that leaves behind a stain, you will be able to remove the affected area easily by removing just that tile. With plank flooring, you will have to wait until you can replace the whole flooring. All it takes to remove a vinyl tile is heating it. Since an adhesive is applied under these tiles, heating will make it melt. This makes pulling the tile up easy. Then you can use a spatula or another flat tool to scrape away the bonding agent and the tile may be removed. Next, replace it with another and nobody but you would even know the difference.
Whether you choose the vinyl plank or tile form, this type of flooring material offers you a great advantage. Both types can be printed, so they resemble other materials used for flooring, such as hardwood, ceramic, and natural stone. But they won’t break the bank!
