Why Builders and Remodellers Are Choosing Vinyl Flooring in Ottawa

Vinyl Flooring
An increasing number of homeowners, remodelers, and builders are selecting vinyl flooring in Ottawa for a wide range of projects. If you are not familiar with these cost efficient, durable, and stylish sheet materials for floors, it is worthwhile to explore these options for your home, garage, or business.

Expanding Design Options

Vinyl flooring opens a huge world of design possibility. Would you love to tile your entire floor in marble, but do not want the high materials and installation costs? You can achieve the same look with vinyl tiles made to look like marble and reduce your expenses considerably. Vinyl sheets are used to create the look of natural stone, wood, ceramic, and other flooring materials. You can also use vinyl tiles to create a mosaic or other unique pattern within the floor.

Versatile Installation Options

A vinyl floor system is installed using either a click and lock system, glued down, or as sheeting. While vinyl sheeting and glued vinyl floors require a very smooth subfloor, such as an even concrete foundation, the click and lock vinyl floors can be installed over nearly any type of existing floor or surface. Carpet is one of the only types of floors you cannot install this type of vinyl flooring material over.

Even if you do need to install a smooth subfloor before installing vinyl, the installation process remains fairly simple and the end result is a very durable and strong flooring system. Installation time and costs for vinyl are generally better than or comparable to many other types of flooring options.

Durability and Ease of Maintenance

Due largely to the increase in design and installation options, vinyl flooring is becoming more popular in living spaces, but it is most commonly installed in garages, basements, and industrial areas. This is because it is incredibly resistant to denting, scratches, and other signs of wear. It is also waterproof and can be installed with very few seams. This makes it an excellent choice for any rooms with a lot of moisture; bacteria have no crevices to hide and grow within.

In addition to being fairly seamless, a vinyl floor is also generally installed with a protective topcoat installed over the floor. This increases the resilience of the floor, making it even more resistant to stains, scuffs, and spills. This type of floor can often be cleaned well with nothing more than a damp mop. To maintain this resilience, you can reseal the floor once a year and enjoy the same high performance from the floor.
