Learn More About Sheet Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring sheets are usually six or twelve feet in width, and this large format gives this style some inherent benefits over similar products such as luxury vinyl plank and vinyl tiles. Most vinyl sheet flooring will be less expensive than other vinyl products because the manufacturing process is less complicated. That ease extends to the installation process, meaning that a sheet vinyl floor from Empire will usually be more affordable overall than any other hard surface floor style available.

The minimal number of seams in a sheet of vinyl flooring means there are fewer areas for water to permeate to the subfloor, making it both a highly water-resistant floor and remarkably easy to maintain. It’s also an incredibly versatile flooring product and can be installed directly onto a concrete subfloor and oftentimes over existing tile, wood, or vinyl floors. Because it’s water-resistant and easy to maintain, vinyl sheet flooring is a good choice for homes with pets. Plus, its slip-resistant surface can be easier for cats and dogs to walk on.

Like other vinyl flooring products, one of sheet vinyl’s greatest strengths is its ability to mimic other flooring types. This feature makes it a great choice for situations in which you can’t have—or simply don’t want—a different flooring material installed. Solid hardwood floor is not recommended for kitchens, bathrooms, or other rooms prone to moisture collection. And tile floors can be uncomfortable in rooms where kids play or in areas of the country with long, cold winters. But a sheet vinyl floor that looks like wood can easily go where real wood can’t, and one that mimics tile offers a warmer, softer feel underfoot than tile or stone floors. You’ll get the look you want without the downsides of either of those flooring types—and most likely at a more affordable total price.
