Buying Tips for Resilient Flooring
Why Buy Resilient Flooring?
Resilient flooring is an amazing material if you’re looking for something that is both a great value and long lasting. It is softer under foot than ceramic tile and wood, which makes it a great choice in kitchens where you’ll spend a lot of time standing. Its ability to hold up under the harshest of conditions is why it is used frequently in commercial settings.
Resilient flooring is a great solution for residential applications as well. Breakthroughs in digital printing allow manufacturers to create the look of expensive stone, wood and ceramic floors with stunning realism at a fraction of the cost of the real material.
Another huge benefit of using resilient flooring is the easy maintenance. It is highly water and stain resistant. You will only have to sweep up dirt and debris periodically. If you need a deeper clean, you only need to use a damp mop. Follow all manufacture cleaning instructions.

Buying Tips for Vinyl Flooring
Today’s vinyl flooring has come a long way. With the introduction of the new luxury vinyl tiles you now can have a floor consisting of up to 70 percent limestone. These remarkable tiles are so realistic, most people will not know it is not ceramic tile or stone flooring. The tiles can be grouted just like ceramic tile and are glued to the subfloor. LVT tiles are more flexible than ceramic or porcelain tile so it can be installed over most relatively level, wood subflooring.
