How do I take care of vinyl?

Care for vinyl and luxury vinyl is quite simple. Sweep or vacuum as needed. Use a damp mop with the manufacturer's recommended floor cleaner. These products as well as other approved products can be found at Enhance Floors & More.

Will I have trouble with seams in my sheet vinyl? Will the seams appear noticeable or come apart?

Seams are made at the grout or a pattern line to make them less visible so, no, you should not have any problems with visible seams. We use only the approved manufacturer's seam sealer to properly seal the seams.

Will sunlight damage my floor?

Vinyl can be damaged by the sun's rays, and this can cause it to discolor and fade prematurely. To prevent this from happening, make sure that you close the window blinds in your home or commercial location on very sunny days.

Am I able to use rugs or mats on my floor?

Yes, most area rugs are safe for your vinyl floor. Be sure to use a quality rug pad to prevent the coarse rug backing from scratching your floor. However, rubber-backed mats are not recommended since they can permanently stain your floor's surface.

Will vinyl stand up to children and pets?

The wear layer and thickness determine the durability of a particular vinyl. The thicker the wear layer and vinyl the more durable the vinyl will be. Many of the vinyl styles we carry have specific warranties against ripping, tearing, and gouging. Ask your Design Consultant for details.

What does the installed price include?

The installed price includes the flooring, required adhesives and seam sealers, and professional installation.
 
 
 

What is underlayment?

Underlayment is a specially engineered 1/4" product that is installed under the new vinyl floor. It provides a fresh, smooth, trouble-free surface to eliminate most subfloor problems.

Why is some vinyl so much more expensive than others?

Some vinyls have more features than others. This includes thicker and more durable wear layers as well as other additional features such as Master Works technology, aluminum oxide, Scotchgard, and Tough Guard backings.

Are these "no wax" floors?

With the different features that the wear layers provide waxing a new vinyl floor is no longer necessary.
 

My kitchen is wider than 12' and I don't want any seams.

Unfortunately sheet vinyl does not come wider than 12'. There will be seams but we seal all seams and strive to make sure that any seams are located in the best possible location. This can be discussed further during your in-home estimate.
 
 

How much does a typical kitchen cost?

An average lower end (builder grade) kitchen costs about $1,300 fully installed. A mid range quality will cost approximately $1,800. Higher end vinyls will cost about $2,500 depending on the actual vinyl selected, pattern repeat, square footage and other details of the installation.

What is floor prep?

Anything that is required to follow the manufacturer's requirements that the subfloor be flat, clean, dry, and structurally sound prior to the installation of the new floor. For luxury vinyl planks and tiles, the subfloor must be level to within 3/16" over a 10' span.

What is the difference between vinyl and linoleum?

True linoleum is made from all natural components such as linseed oil. Historically all "vinyl" was linoleum. Today real linoleum is rare but does still exist. Linoleum is limited in print and pattern capabilities and must be waxed on a regular basis. Most vinyl flooring sold today is 100% synthetic. There is seemingly no end to the number of vinyl prints and patterns to choose from. Vinyl is very easy to maintain and is a popular choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.

Which should I do first, paint or the new floor?

You can certainly do your floors first. A reputable painter will not have any problems protecting and not damaging your brand new floors. By doing the painting last, you don't have to worry about touch-up painting, painting your primed shoemold, etc.
