PVC flooring helps to insulate against extreme weather effects heat and cold. Polyvinyl chloride flooring is known for its resemblance to wood, but some designs also look like granite. It is also water and stain-resistant, making it suitable for any residential and commercial room. It is also easy to clean and adapts to all weather conditions. It is a plastic floor, so it helps to insulate against extreme weather effects – heat and cold.
Wooden Flooring have been trendy in recent years, but their maintenance is not easy and costs a lot of money. It also requires regular maintenance, and if you ever plan to sell your home, hardwood floors are too specific for most people.
On the other hand, marble floors are also a popular flooring choice. However, luxury marble flooring will cost much more than PVC flooring. If you want to redo the floor of your house on a budget, PVC is your best choice.
WHICH PVC FLOOR IS BEST FOR US?
PVC should be properly layered. PVC flooring can generally be divided into two categories, i) homogeneous and ii) heterogeneous PVC flooring also known as PVC plank flooring.
Homogeneous PVC floors are relatively affordable and advantageous, especially for highly frequented industrial spaces, such as hospitals, schools, libraries, supermarkets, warehouses, etc. However, this is not an aesthetic option, as they are primarily monochromatic without patterns. The polyurethane surface coating prevents dirt from sticking to the surface and makes cleaning the floor easier. But this kind of flooring can be slippery and also won’t give a luxurious look you’re looking for. Most people, therefore, opt for heterogeneous PVC floors.
Heterogeneous PVC flooring is a multi-layer, thicker flooring and comes in a wide variety of colors, patterns, and designs. Due to its thickness and to ensure the floor’s longevity, people suggest it be done using the plank method.
A PVC plank floor is done similarly to the above but raises concerns about the subfloor and how to treat the moisture before the job is done. Unlike laminate flooring, most vinyl flooring is designed to be laid directly over the subfloor.
You can use an old floor as a subfloor, but there are a few things to consider. For example, the stencil you are working on must be in a condition that is good enough to be used as a base, meaning that it should not be damaged. Ideally, it should be smooth and clean without dust.
However, if you are working with concrete, there is one thing you need to be careful about: you need to use some padding or underlay to make the floor easier to walk on. If you plan to install PVC flooring over wood, tile, or linoleum, you can add an underlay of the same material to prevent moisture and provide additional cushion. However, leveling and cleaning your old floor will work just as well.
The next step is choosing the right type of vinyl flooring. There are many designs and designs to choose from. This will just depend on the overall theme of your home or office and the specific area where you want to install the vinyl flooring. After choosing the design and color, you should decide on the thickness of your floor. This is a crucial step.
WHAT THICKNESS OF VINYL PVC FLOOR FOR WHICH ROOM?
Rolls of various thicknesses are readily available in local markets. This means that you need to be very specific about the thickness of the flooring in each room of your house, as this helps determine the lifespan of the flooring. This can be a problem for many as each level of thickness is associated with its functionality. Typically, you can categorize each mold according to its use in different rooms of the house or commercial space.
