Available in unlimited colors, patterns, and textures, sheet vinyl is a very versatile and cost-effective flooring option. Particularly for projects with modest budgets or for short-term use. Grades of vinyl vary, with higher-end products typically offering more durability and resistance to stains, tearing, scratches, and peeling. Because it needs fewer seams, sheet vinyl is preferable to tiles, especially for large areas. Provided the clear topcoat (wear-layer) remains in good condition, vinyl floors will be attractive and serviceable in many applications.
