Sheet Vinyl Considerations


Sheet Vinyl Flooring has a 5-ply double encapsulated construction that provides durable, cost-effective, high-resolution Hardwood and Stone visuals. This Flooring also has moisture-resistant properties that help it to withstand humidity. Its layers include:

  • Finish Layer: This is a top urethane layer that helps resist scuffs, scrapes, and stains and allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. This layer adds toughness to the flooring - it helps prevent wear and increases Floor durability.
  • Texture Layer: This gives the look and feel of real stone or wood with exceptional clarity.
  • Foam Layer: This layer provides additional resilience and also helps the Flooring resist “telegraphing” or indentations.
  • Fiberglass Layer: This layer helps ensure the flooring will not contract, expand, crack or curl. It lends the Flooring its strength and durability.
  • Comfort Layer: This layer provides soft cushioning support, helps reduce traffic noise and provides a comfortable walking surface.


  • Cedar: Simulating the rich, dark tones of cedar in antiqued and distressed planks, this wood visual delivers a look that is classic, yet modern.
  • Barn Wood: The natural look of eight-inch planks, complete with knots and a roughhewn surface. This wood visual provides classic farmhouse look reinvented with a modern flair.
  • Neutral Stone: Subtle variations in texture coupled with cool or ivory coloring makes this a great solution for any décor style.
  • Rectangular: A staggered layout of rectangular Tile in deep, rich colors defined by light grout gives a look that is both contemporary and classic.
  • Intricate Pattern: An elaborate pattern of square and rectangular Tiles and a neutral color palette makes this a sophisticated choice.
  • Random Shapes: The look of randomly cut stones interlock to form a unique, custom floor look.
  • Terra Cotta: Dark, rich tones blend with the look of natural stone texture for an Old World look.

Vinyl Flooring Care & Cleaning

  • Use felt pads to help protect your floor from furniture.
  • Sweep frequently -- loose dirt can cause abrasions on your floor’s surface.
  • Place protective mats at doorways to help keep dirt and moisture off your floor.
  • Avoid using rollers and castors.
