What is the best vinyl flooring for kitchens?

January 15, 2014 Leave a comment

Considering new flooring in your kitchen? Vinyl is the way to go. Easy to clean and maintain, vinyl flooring is built with multiple layers for durability and resistance to water and staining, making it the perfect flooring solution for your kitchen and all the little messes you might create.

 

There are many vinyl flooring options and styles to choose from, the best of which is based on your personal preference and DIY ability.

 

Vinyl Sheets – A low cost choice for large kitchen areas, vinyl sheet flooring can be a difficult installation without the help of a hired professional. Installation of vinyl sheets require laying sticky adhesive and heat welding the vinyl seams for a seamless appearance, a practice which is unforgiving if a mistake is made. We recommend hiring a professional for this permanent installation due to the advanced nature of the installation.

Peel & Stick Vinyl Tiles – Peel and stick tiles are offered in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing for endless options for your kitchen floor.

These resilient vinyl tiles only require a straight edge and a utility knife for installation, and replacing a damaged tile in the future will be just as easy. Read more…

When we think about vinyl flooring, we often have a mental picture of outdated and out of style bathroom flooring in older homes. The go-to low cost option for many decades, vinyl flooring was perceived as cheap and lacking beauty and range of options. Vinyl flooring developed a bad reputation, causing a wide array of deluxe flooring materials to hit the market. With more options available these past few decades, we have seen friends and family replace their old vinyl flooring with more “modern” and “trendy” flooring options.

Recently reborn, vinyl flooring is making a comeback and is now one of those “modern” and “trendy” flooring options of the future. Technologically advanced, vinyl flooring should be known for the amazing and versatile flooring that it truly is, the flooring of the future. Read more…

November 16, 2012 1 comment

We have been inundated with questions from Hurricane Sandy victims for a few weeks now and decided to write a helpful guide to explain flood resistant flooring options.  First of all, we would all like to say that we are very sorry to hear about all the hardships you all are facing and we would like to help.  If you have been a victim of Sandy, please use code Sandy30 when you checkout to save 30% off your order until the end of the year.

The most common questions we have been receiving have been:

  • Does rubber flooring help to waterproof your basement floor?
  • I had rubber flooring in an area of my house that was flooded, now what do I do?
  • What is the best type of flooring for a flooded basement or a flood prone basement?

We are going to start this guide by answering these questions.  After that we are going to explain the pros and cons of numerous different flooring options including rubber, vinyl, ceramic tile, epoxy’s, concrete stains, and carpet.  Hopefully after all of that, we will have put together a decent guide for flood victims going forward.

May 11, 2012 Leave a comment

After months of hard work, we are finally unveiling a super top secret project we have been working on.  We would like to welcome to the world our latest innovation, the Nitro Roll.  So what makes these rolls so great that they deserve a post about them?  Well let us tell you.  These rolls are similar quality to the vinyl garage flooring rolls we have always carried however they have numerous other advantages.  Here is a list of those advantages:

  1. Nitro Rolls will ship the same or next business day right from our facility here in Chandler, AZ.  Every roll out garage flooring supplier before now has had a lead time of 7-10 business days so we are saving the customer 6-9 days of lead time.
  2. Nitro Rolls are the lowest cost coin and diamond pattern garage flooring rolls on the market.
  3. Nitro Rolls have the longest warranty (7 years) of any roll out garage flooring product on the market.  So even if they are low in cost, you can be sure they are of the highest quality.

Nitro rolls initially will be available in two colors, black and light gray, however more color options are expected to be added in the near future.  Nitro rolls are also only available in our most popular garage roll dimension, 7.5′ x 17′ at this time, but more size options could be added by the end of the year.

To see our more information about our new Nitro Rolls, please feel free to visit the product page on our site or on our sister site, GarageFlooringInc.com.

Home Gym Flooring – 4 popular choices but what is the best flooring solution for you?

December 9, 2011 Leave a comment

There are a wide variety of floor covering options available for use as home gym flooring and often times picking out the right solution can seem like a difficult task.  The three most popular flooring options for use in home gym and exercise rooms are carpet, rubber flooring, foam flooring, and vinyl tiles.  In this article we will explain the benefits of each option so that you can be sure you select the best home gym flooring for you.

Option #1 – Carpet

Carpet is the most popular floor covering option in America and is excellent all-purpose flooring.  Carpet can be relatively inexpensive, is comfortable to the touch, and is fairly easy to clean and maintain.  Carpet also can be an excellent floor solution for use as home gym flooring.  The best carpet options for use in areas where exercise take place in the home are low pile carpet options.  Low pile carpet is usually a little more course to the touch however it is usually much more durable compared to fluffy shag or even soft Berber style carpets often found in homes.  Commercial grade carpet also works very well for home gyms due to its tight knit loops.  One other form of carpet that is often used as exercise flooring is carpet tiles.  These tiles interlock and can be easily installed by the average person.

The benefits to using carpet in a home gym is that it is available in a wide array of colors, is durable enough to last for many years, and is soft enough for young kids to play on while Mom and Dad get their workout in.  Carpet is also a favorite gym flooring option since it is a floor covering that the average home user completely understands and already knows how to take care of.  The downside to using carpet as a flooring in home gyms and exercise studios is that it needs to be installed by a professional carpet installer, can stretch over time under strenuous use and require a carpet installer to re stretch the carpet, and can hold moisture and require a professional cleaning every few years.   One particular tricky spot for using carpet as home gym flooring is in basements.  Over the years, we have heard from numerous Midwest customers that their basement flooded and that the carpet they had installed in their basement home gym was ruined.  These individuals are often looking for a solution to prevent a similar situation from happening in the future which leads to:

Option #2 – Rubber Flooring

Rubber Flooring is our specialty at RubberFlooringInc.com.  Rubber flooring can be purchased in rolls or tiles and is available in a wide range of thicknesses and color options.  Rubber flooring can range in price from a cheap $0.99 per square foot for recycled rubber floors up to and over $4.00 per square foot for the most designer series virgin rubber options.  The benefits to using rubber as a floor covering are Read more…
