Are you considering getting a vinyl floor?
Vinyl will give your home a rich look at an affordable price. It’s also a versatile material that you can use to mimic other types of flooring materials. These are the advantages and disadvantages of using vinyl for your floor:
The Advantages Of Vinyl Flooring
Its costs: Vinyl is one of the least expensive flooring materials.
Low maintenance: Vinyl floors are dust- and water-resistant. That’s why occasionally using a vacuum cleaner and a mop will be enough to clean it.
Durability: Vinyl is a strong, durable material. Generally, you can expect a vinyl floor to last about 15 to 20 years if you properly maintain it.
A wide variety of options: Vinyl floors come in a wide variety of patterns, colors and styles. You can use it to mimic other types of flooring. That’s why it can be used for many different objectives.
The Disadvantages Of Vinyl Flooring
Difficult to remove: Vinyl floors are difficult to remove after installation.
Difficult to repair: Once the vinyl is damaged there’s not much you can do to get it repaired. This means you’ll have to fully replace it to fix the problem.
Not environmental friendly: In most cases, vinyl can’t be recycled. It also uses a lot of natural resources to be made.
Prone to damage: Vinyl floors are more prone to damage than other types of materials. When you drop something on it the surface can be gauged. Moving furniture can also be a problem because it can scratch the surface.
Doesn’t increase the value of your home: If you’re planning on selling your home, vinyl is not the best option. Unlike a hardwood floor, a vinyl floor does not increase the resale value of your home.
Vinyl Flooring Installation
Vinyl floors are tricky to install but you don’t need any expensive equipment because of its assembling system. It’s important to have a dry, even subfloor before you begin the installation. If anything is uneven before you begin it will result in bumps and uneven places.
In most cases, the best subfloor is a layer of plywood. It can also be done with concrete, but there is a higher chance of uneven places. We do not recommend you lay vinyl on top of other vinyl. This is because the texture of the old floor might show through the new one.
While you can install vinyl tiles by yourself, sheet vinyl is a lot harder to do. That’s why, in most cases, we recommend you hire us to achieve a perfect, even look.

- LVT Vinyl costs: The average costs of LVT vinyl is between $10 – $13 per foot

❝ Me and my wife had just moved to New Orleans and needed a new floor. We were hoping to get some advice because we weren’t sure what type of material to use. Travis really took his time with us by thoroughly explaining the pros and cons of each material. This made us decide to hire him. Before he started working on the floor, he gave us a scope of work that contained everything that was important to know. The work ended up being done in less time than we initially expected. But most importantly, we couldn’t be happier with the result! Hiring Travis made us feel right at home in New Orleans. Thanks again Travis. ❞

❝ In the past, I got overcharged by an unlicensed contractor. That’s why I asked for a list of referrals when I got in contact with Travis. Travis was very understanding. He had no problems giving me a list of people he worked for. I decided to hire him and ended up being impressed by his professionalism. I got the floor I wanted for a great price and without any unexpected problems. I’d recommend Travis to anyone who wants to get a floor installed or repaired. Keep up the good work Travis ❞
