Vinyl Buying Guide
Why go for vinyl?
Modern vinyl is so strong and hardwearing it is suitable for areas of heavy traffic, so it’s a really good choice for busy homes. What’s more, vinyl has become so sophisticated in its manufacture that, with natural stone, wood and stunning mosaic designs it’s a great alternative to more expensive floors such as hardwood or tiles. And because it’s easy to clean using even the gentlest of household cleaners, it’s an even more attractive proposition to those who want the quality look without the inflated expense.
In short, vinyl offers:
- Low cost, quality flooring
- Strength & durability
- Heat insulation
- Resilience to moisture
- Scratch, dent & chip resistance
- Easy maintenance
Many ranges are also now available with added slip resistance and anti bacterial treatment.
So what exactly is vinyl?
Vinyl is made from a special type of plastic known as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) which is tough, durable and ideal for wet areas such as the bathroom or kitchen. It can be bought in multi width sheets, tiles or planks and can be cut in different ways.
