Vinyl Buyer's Checklist

A STEP-BY-STEP WALKTHROUGH

A Major Decision

Vinyl is a practical and waterproof resilient flooring option, especially well suited for mudrooms and bathrooms. Choosing vinyl flooring for your home is a major decision. Actually, it’s a series of several decisions. There are so many types and styles of vinyl and so many other aspects to consider, the task can be daunting. Although not exhaustive, this checklist will walk you step by step through the main considerations that will ultimately help lead you to the perfect vinyl flooring for your home.

Choosing The Right
Vinyl Flooring

When choosing flooring, discuss the following considerations with your retailer:

  • Consider who spends time in your home. Don’t forget to include visitors and pets. Since your flooring will likely be down for several years, you may want to consider future children or pets as well.
  • Taking into account your lifestyle and the daily use of your floors, rank the importance of vinyl’s scratch resistance, durability and clean-ability.
  • Consider your environment. Is your space affected by sun exposure or other elements?

Vinyl Flooring Design & Construction

  • Familiarize yourself with the different types of vinyl flooring products and choose which will work best for your project.
  • Choose the installation type that works best for your space.
  • LVT can be flexible or have a rigid core.
  • Look for virgin vinyl, since recycled vinyl may contain toxic substances.
  • Identify your decorating style and gather samples of existing paint, fabrics and adjacent flooring.
  • Determine your preference for vinyl aesthetics.
  • Consider the different types of wear layers or protective coatings to determine which is best for your home.

How to Measure and Purchase Vinyl Flooring

  • Measure your space to estimate your square footage. Multiply length times width of each room to equal square footage. To account for waste, add 10% to the total (multiply by 1.10) for a good working estimate.
  • Figure in vinyl flooring price, installation, underlayment and additional fees to create a realistic budget and to accurately compare products.
  • You want to find a retailer near you.
  • Consider your payment options.
  • Before you purchase, read all warranty information carefully to fully understand any requirements.

Vinyl Flooring Installation and Maintenance Tips

  • Although installing vinyl can be a DIY project, talk to your retailer about the benefits of choosing a professional installer.
  • Vinyl flooring should be delivered two days ahead of installation to the room(s) where it will be installed for proper acclimation.
  • Prepare your home for installation.
  • Read the manufacturer’s literature to learn about proper care and maintenance for your new vinyl flooring.
