Vinyl is an ideal flooring solution for homes and businesses that require a flexible, easy to clean surface. Vinyl sheet flooring is one of the least expensive options on the market and can be used in any climate and on any floor level, including below grade. Vinyl is a resin based flooring, and can be either surface printed with a pattern or embedded with tiny particles of color. Vinyl floor tiles may come with an adhesive backing or be applied with a special glue. Vinyl sheet flooring is almost always glued down; a heavy roller is used to press out air, remove wrinkles and provide even adhesion.
