Attractive sheet vinyl won’t break the bank

If you are looking for budget-friendly flooring, you can not go wrong with sheet vinyl. Favored for kitchens and bathrooms sheet vinyl comes in designs and colors that complement room designs that range from ultra-modern to Old World. The flooring resists scratches and stains as well as water. Since a vinyl floor is easy to clean, it is ideal for households that include children and pets. Wards Discount Carpet is a vinyl flooring retailer in Sandy, Utah, that offers many discounted brands. We have been bringing high-quality floor coverings to northern Utah for over 24years.


Sheet vinyl is a composite material that comprises several layers. Most premium brands have a cork backing layer. The most popular brands contain a fiberglass layer that keeps the sheet from curling. Sheet vinyl also has a wear layer that resists abrasion. This thin vinyl flooring comes in 6-and 12-foot rolls that are cut into sheets sized to cover the floor. A small room can be fitted with one sheet while larger rooms take two or three sheets. With no or few seams, water and spills are likely to remain on the surface rather than seeping into the subfloor.


Vinyl flooring, which can be printed to look like hardwood, natural stone, and ceramic tile, lasts 10 to 20 years.
The best brands can last longer with proper care. Daily sweeping or vacuuming removes dirt and debris, and occasional damp mopping keeps the floor looking its best. You can be assured that all dirt is removed by using a specialized vinyl cleaner. Spills should be cleaned up immediately to avoid staining or discoloration. The flooring is ideal for commercial applications and high traffic residential spaces.


Most often, sheet vinyl is installed by gluing the entire sheet to the subfloor. Or it can be glued around the perimeter of the room only. Double-sided adhesive tape brands grip the floor while friction keeps loose lay brands in place. These floating floors, best for small spaces, hide subfloor irregularities. Sheet vinyl can be installed over some existing flooring as well as a plywood subfloor. Underlayment is placed beneath the flooring. Some brands come with a pre-attached layer of foam.
