About Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl floors are a popular choice for their many great benefits, including the diverse range of styles that they come in and their cost effectiveness compared to other flooring types.
Vinyl flooring can be installed in virtually any area of the home, both above and below grade. The unique advantage of wood finish vinyl planks is that damp basements are no problem for this water-resistant material.
Typically not suitable for stairs, vinyl must be installed on a flat, level surface. Because vinyl tiles and planks require a smooth surface, it’s best to install vinyl over a well-sanded plywood subfloor. While it is possible to install vinyl on concrete, a plywood subfloor ensures uniformity and also adds additional comfort under foot.
Although it’s possible to install yourself, for the best results, we recommend you trust vinyl installation to a professional so that it will look its absolute best for many years to come. Our installation experts at Chestnut Flooring will carefully prep and install your flooring in your desired pattern, providing a professional finish with no visible seams.
Discover Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)
Vinyl flooring has been completely revitalized with the creation of luxury vinyl tile (LVT), a beautiful, high quality alternative to natural stone, wood, and ceramic tile.
In many cases, it is difficult to distinguish between LVT and the natural stones, ceramic tiles, and hardwood that it is designed to replicate.
This makes vinyl tile an ideal choice for individuals who hope to achieve the look and textures of various stones or wood types, without the cost associated with such products.
Many vinyl planks, sheets and tiles have a felt or foam backing, making them more flexible and more comfortable to walk and stand on.
In addition, vinyl is not as cold as wood or ceramic tiles, which makes it more comfortable to walk on in the colder months. The foam backing of vinyl floors also helps to reduce sound because sound is absorbed by the cushioned surface, ensuring your comfort.
