Does sheet vinyl suit your room and lifestyle?
Choosing sheet vinyl.

Sheet Vinyl Floors, also called resilient or vinyl, remains a great option for families with kids and or pets. Flooring for kitchens and bathrooms needs to fill a tall order. After all, we demand a lot of the materials we choose to go underfoot in these hard-working rooms. Sheet vinyl flooring is  very resistant to water and is a great choice for high moisture areas.  Sheet vinyl floors come in rolls as sheet products. A great combination of beauty and function, vinyl is a durable and easy-to-clean floor that can be installed anywhere in the home.

About Fiberglass Sheet Vinyl. Also called flex floor, glass-backed or glueless, this new category in vinyl flooring gives you a new level of decorating convenience. This latest development in vinyl flooring is the addition of a fibreglass layer to the core of the material. The fibreglass adds strength and cushion to the floor. These floors are water resistant, dimensionally stable and virtually impervious to moisture so it is a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens.

  • Easy on the feet – made with thick dense layers of foam backing, this floor is soft and comfortable underfoot.
  • Easy to install – it can be installed with full-spread adhesive or modified loose lay.
  • Easy to maintain – sweeping and an occasional damp mop will do.

Properly maintained, sheet vinyl floors can last for a very long time.

Things to think about when buying sheet vinyl.

The more expensive sheet vinyl flooring will have better resistance to staining, scratches, gouges and tearing and offer better warranties. The higher quality vinyl floors also have improved styling and more textural realism. Today’s consumers can explore the huge selection of sheet vinyl floors with realistic designs that look like wood, stone and other natural materials. A beautiful and practical flooring solution for many homes.

The wear layer is the top and most important layer of a vinyl floor.  A wear layer thickness can range between 6 and 40 mils and the thicker the wear layer, the more durable the floor will be.

You will probably have an old floor that will first have to be removed. The cost to remove and haul away the different types of flooring will vary but you should plan to factor this into your budget.

Does "thickness" matter when buying sheet vinyl?

Thickness in sheet vinyl flooring is not always an indication of better quality.

Focus on the layer called the WEAR LAYER which is responsible for taking on the daily wear and tear of the floor. You will want a thick wear layer as this will determine how your floor will hold up to scuffing, scratches and stains. Usually, the thicker the layer, the more expensive the floor but also the longer the warranty and quite simply the longevity of the floor. Wear layer thickness is measured in mils (the thickness of a mil is about the same as a page in the telephone book).

What is the difference between sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl?

When you hear the words “Sheet Vinyl Flooring” you probably picture the sheets or rolls of vinyl flooring that have been around for ages. Sheet vinyl has become an attractive option in flooring due to it’s durability and cost effectiveness. As flooring options have grown and evolved so has the world of “Vinyl”. There is a new kid on the block and it’s called “Luxury Vinyl” which is available in tile or plank format, also referred to as  LVT or LVP.

Luxury vinyl is a premium vinyl product. Using advanced photographic technologies, luxury vinyl does an excellent job of simulating the look of wood, natural stone, slate and ceramic tile, but as its vinyl, it provides a comfortable surface and excellent durability.  Many of the Luxury Vinyl Tile products can be installed with or without grout, mimicking a true tile appearance.

The sheet vinyl buying process.

Visit our showroom and our sales associates will help you select the perfect flooring for your home. Bring swatches of furniture fabrics, draperies, bedspreads, wallpaper and paint that will remain in the room. You will probably want to bring samples home with you to see how it looks in your décor.

Before you visit us, consider drawing a simple outline of the room indicating:

  • Room Exits – are there any exits to the outside?  Are there patio doors?
  • Adjoining room floors – what types of flooring will flow into this room?  What are the colours?
  • Sunlight and other lighting – how much natural light comes in during the day, from what direction?
  • Rough measurement – measure the length and width of the room – include closets.

Our sales associates may ask you:

  • Is there light or heavy traffic in this room?
  • What is the room used for?
  • Do you want a casual, formal or somewhere in between look?
  • Do you have children or pets?
  • Do you have a certain colour in mind?
  • Is there a style you’ve owned or seen that you really like?

Nufloors will provide a free in home measure/estimate. We will determine exactly how much flooring you will need to buy and will determine the layout of the flooring in the room, where the seams will be placed (if applicable), and will review pattern matches if applicable. At this time, we will determine if your sub-floor is structurally sound or if repairs / replacement will be required.

If you decide to purchase from us (and we hope that you will!) we will schedule the installation and will prepare you for what to expect on installation day, such as who removes the old flooring, who moves the furniture and electronics, etc., who handles the door trimming (if required), will it be necessary to remove the moldings? Our installers are skilled, but not in electrical or plumbing work. They may be able to help with moving appliances but will not be able to disconnect/reconnect gas, water or direct-wired appliances.
