Types of Vinyl Flooring

Choosing your optimal vinyl flooring product can be an overwhelming process: one based on your budget and functional needs. We carry various vinyl options, including sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl plank, and luxury vinyl tile. Sheet vinyl is a beautiful and resilient option for those on smaller budgets, or those with larger spaces to cover.

Luxury vinyl tile is a manufactured product capturing the delicate nuances of ceramic, porcelain, and stone. Unlike traditional tile products, your luxury vinyl tile never needs grouting or grading. It’s sturdy yet soft, delicate, yet tough. Luxury vinyl tile is readily customized and can be used on floors as well as walls.


If you’re longing for a hardwood look in your kitchen or bathroom, look no further: luxury vinyl plank will have you covered. With styles reflecting all the latest hardwood trends, it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. Luxury vinyl plank comes in patterns inspired by your favorite hardwood species, sizes, styles, and finishes.





Is Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?

The short answer is yes- and no. Allow us to explain. All types of vinyl flooring offer up a level of moisture resistance. Certain products take this even further. Rigid core and WPC, both hybrid luxury vinyl types, are considered fully waterproof. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is a terrific all-around flooring option for homes with pets and little kids. It also works great in the bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room.

Water-resistant floors can repel moisture from the surface, but the core will eventually soak up any moisture. Water-resistant floors are a good option for spaces in your home that you often maintain so they are not forgotten.



A waterproof floor repels any moisture, protecting both the floor itself as well as your subfloor. Manufacturers use limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture to make luxury vinyl’s core. Waterproof luxury vinyl floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture. You should always keep in mind that just because the flooring itself is waterproof does not mean your subfloor is waterproof.




Vinyl Flooring Installation

There are hundreds of vinyl flooring options being introduced on the regular, which means there are selections suitable for ALL interior settings. Whether you prefer a wood-like plank or a tile that resembles burnished slate, we have your vinyl right here. Consider a waterproof variety for your more challenging spots. Luxury vinyl tile and plank can also be used as a backsplash, or as a wall paneling. Truly, when it comes to installing new luxury vinyl flooring, the only real limits are in your imagination.
