Making sound decisions for your place of business can be a delicate balance. You obviously want to do what makes the most sense financially and aesthetically while also taking into consideration the safety of others. And what makes the most sense will certainly differ from person to person. That is why Winn Tile wants to provide you with the information that will help you make the best choice for your business.
Laminate has long been a popular choice for commercial settings. And it is no wonder why. Laminate is a very budget friendly option, often being cheaper than other flooring materials. Laminate is also relatively easy to clean and maintain. In addition, it has the added pro of being available in a wide range of styles and colors. So, you will surely find something to fit your needs.
VCT is also a great value as well as quite durable. Also, worth noting is the fact that VCT makes it easy to replace damaged tiles. One downside worth mentioning is the glue used for VCT installation. Overtime, this glue can lose its integrity and allow the corners of tiles to lift. Eventually, this will cause the tiles to wear. Not to mention that it may give off an undesirable look.
LVT is the next level up from VCT. While it may cost a smidge more up front, it makes up for it when it comes to maintenance. This is because LVT has a thin, clear protective layer over top that helps maintain the print on the tile. Because of this layer, LVT does not require regular sealants to be applied as with VCT.
Modular carpet tiles are a great option if you like the durability and function of broadloom carpet. But modular carpet tiles excel in ways that broadloom carpet does not. For example, because they come in tiled squares, installation and repair is extremely easy. These squares are also adhered to vinyl backing, which makes them harder to unravel.
