When resurfacing your next floor, consider vinyl as a durable, relatively inexpensive and stylish alternative to regular flooring. Vinyl has come a long way since it was made out of linoleum, now a smart, fashionable, quality material that you should definitely consider alongside ceramic tiles. Today’s domestic vinyl now comes with cushioned backing, making it very comfortable to walk, but also extremely resilient. Sheet vinyl comes in either perimeter-bond (where glue is only applied to the sheet’s perimeter) or full-bond (which has glue applied to the sheet’s entire underside). Full-bond is tougher than perimeter-bond vinyl as the entire sheet is attached to the floor, but it is important to chose the right sheet type for you and your home. Once you’ve chosen your vinyl design, installation can be made a breeze by professional and friendly Floors R Us employees.

Per square metre, vinyl is also a lot cheaper to purchase and install when compared to all other floorings, making it extremely economical!
