Selecting resilient flooring - materials such as vinyl & vinyl tile, linoleum, and even rubber - no longer requires choosing substance over style. The benefits of resilient flooring lie in its name. It takes a daily load of use and abuse - everything from foot traffic to household spills - and requires only minimal maintenance.
The combination of design options, easy installation and good value makes resilient flooring a great choice for utility areas, kitchens, mudrooms, bathrooms and playrooms. You have your choice of realistic wood plank, marble, porcelain, limestone, and mosaic tile looks. All in a low-cost, easy to maintain product. With today’s vinyl flooring choices you can have it all.
For years, vinyl tile was produced mostly in single, plain colors with little emphasis placed on design or fashion. Today, vinyl tile is available in an array of fresh, saturated colors, enabling homeowners to create custom floor designs while being the least expensive and easiest to install option. The result is vinyl tile can now go into many areas where homeowners hadn't previously considered using it because the design possibilities are endless.
Sheet vinyl flooring remains among the lowest priced, and easiest to install and maintain of the flooring options. Vinyl flooring's superior slip-resistance and its heat-welded seaming prevents bacterial and viral growth - ideal for kitchens and bathrooms. Fashionable designs such as mosaics, natural stone, wood plank or parquet vinyl flooring are visually indistinguishable from the real thing.
Linoleum, the precursor to today’s resilient flooring, has been available for more than 100 years in Cleveland. Linoleum is a totally natural flooring product composed of limestone, linseed oil, wood or cork flour, and rosin. Linoleum has the distinctive characteristic of growing tougher over time. The natural oxidation process hardens the material and increases its durability, yet it remains comfortable and quiet underfoot. Linoleum, is also naturally static-resistant and bacteria-resistant.
Rubber tile or rubber sheet flooring offers exceptional slip-resistance in high-traffic and high-load areas, and its natural characteristics help reduce vibration and noise. Available in several dimensional profiles for varying degrees of traction, rubber flooring requires minimal maintenance and needs no additional surface finish.
Rubber’s high resilience also relieves fatigue when used in healthcare facilities and other facilities where employees routinely spend hours on their feet during the workday. Not one to be lost in the trendy shuffle, rubber flooring is also now available in wider range of colors and, like other resilient flooring, can be easily custom cut and installed in unlimited designs.
