Types and Descriptions

Sheet Vinyl

Vinyl or sheet vinyl has been around for decades and is still one of the most popular types of flooring around.  It’s made using a printing process known as ‘rotogravure’, which prints a pattern on the flooring substrate via an engraved cylinder.

 

LVT

Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank (also called LVT) has become the most versatile and popular flooring of modern homes. LVT is incredibly durable, easy to maintain, and can be made to look like hardwood, tile, travertine, or any other style of flooring. Though LVT has been around for 15 years in commercial buildings, LVT is becoming the top choice of designers for residential flooring.

Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank (also called LVT) has become the fastest growing,  most versatile and popular category in the flooring business. Why? Luxury vinyl provides the look and elegance of wood, tile, or stone without the worry! Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, textures, and installation options, LVT brings fashion to your home.

LVT flooring is waterproof, in fact, this was the primary reason it was created; a super tough, resilient, waterproof flooring material that was perfect for restaurants, businesses, basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and even outdoor flooring usage.

All of our brands of vinyl are easy to maintain. They feature durable, extra-thick, no-wax, wear layered surfaces that make maintenance very simple.

Since COREtec is 100% waterproof, COREtec floors can be installed in wet areas and will never swell when exposed to water. COREtec is inert and dimensionally stable; it will not expand or contract under normal conditions. Further, COREtec never needs expansion strips in large rooms. Each COREtec plank has an attached cork underlayment for a quieter, warmer vinyl floor that is naturally resistant to odor causing mold and mildew.

Vinyl Flooring Care & Cleaning

Dirt and foreign materials are the enemies of every type of flooring and vinyl floors are no exception.

So, keep your vinyl floors clean of debris and dirt by sweeping or vacuuming. Loose dirt is gritty and, if left unattended, may scratch your floor.
Be careful not to use a vacuum with a mechanical beater bar that can strike and damage your floor.


Don’t let spills set!

Wipe up spills as soon as possible. Remove dried spills with a gentle Floor Cleaner and a clean white cloth. Always rinse thoroughly.

Never use highly abrasive scrubbing tools.


Wash your vinyl floors regularly with cleaners designed for vinyl.

Do NOT use detergents, abrasive cleaners, or products that may leave a dull film on your floor. If in doubt, try testing a product on a small corner before putting it on your entire floor.
