What is the difference between vinyl and luxury vinyl?

Vinyl (also called resilient flooring) is a solid piece (sheet) of flooring that is on a roll 12 and sometimes six feet wide. Luxury vinyl is smaller individual pieces of vinyl material. Care and maintenance is identical for both products, what differs is the installation method.

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 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.

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 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.
