Advantages and disadvantages of vinyl flooring

Vinyl flooring has been the choice of popular flooring for many years in the United States, and it still accounts for about 15% of the annual floor spending in the country. When most people talk about the ethylene base plate, they usually consider sheet flooring. However, there are other forms of flooring made from vinyl, such as tiles and wood boards. Because they are all made from vinyl groups they share some common features and have many of the same advantages and disadvantages.


Advantage

Endurance: the main advantage of ethylene is its ability to bear. Although it can mimic high-end floors in appearance, vinyl flooring is relatively cheap and can be installed as little as 5 dollars per square foot.

Wide selection of colors: all vinyl flooring is in a wide range of colors, making it adaptable and easily adaptable to almost any decoration.

Quick and convenient installation: it can be easy to install in bricks and boards, as well as sheets. Floor tiles are usually in the 12 inch square, so they are very easy to handle and the tiles and boards on both sides are often made "peel and stick" backing, which means that they are easy to put down for their owners (save money for professional installation).

Moisture resistance: vinyl flooring is completely waterproof, so it can be used in almost any place at home, including the main layer, upper layer and below.  It works in particular in the bathroom and the kitchen, where the water is often on the floor.

Easy to clean up: water only needs the surface of the bead, so it is easy to sweep. In addition, regular cleaning and occasional wet trailing are all that needs to be kept with a clean floor clean and bright all.

Durability: most vinyl flooring on the ethylene itself is on the "wear-resistant layer" (sometimes up to three), so it is resistant to normal traffic wear.

Comfort: ethylene is a "resilient" floor, which means that its texture is soft and a little "give". When you walk on it to make it a good working platform, you can stand for hours.

shortcoming

Petroleum products: ethylene is made from petroleum, so from an environmental point of view, it is made from a non renewable resource, which is a bad product.

No skin: Although the wear-resistant layer is designed to protect the floor surface, after years of traffic will begin to show signs of wear and scratch.  Unlike wood, the ethylene base can not have a new completion application.

Fade: the vinyl can not stand up, the ultraviolet radiation exposes the pattern and color under the sun for a long time, and the vinyl base board will begin to fade.

It is difficult or impossible to repair: Although ethylene is durable, it is difficult to repair if it is not damaged. Vinyl tiles or plates can be disassembled and installed a new one, but a vinyl flooring needs to be replaced.

Surface irregularity: over time some vinyl flooring is developed on the edge or along the joints jolting or curling Murray.
