The best contract vinyl for Cheshire businesses

Vinyl is a popular choice of floor covering for Cheshire commercial buildings. It looks attractive, is easy to maintain and will last a long time even in high footfall areas.

The best type of vinyl

The main types of vinyl are vinyl sheets, vinyl composition tiles and luxury vinyl tiles (LVT). There are several factors to consider when choosing which is the best for a particular room.

Vinyl composite tiles are generally cheaper but require more maintenance as they have to be periodically stripped, polished and waxed. This can make their lifetime cost more expensive than vinyl sheets or LVT, which have fewer maintenance requirements. Regular sweeping and mopping are all that is required to keep LVT tiles looking good,

If a vinyl sheet flooring is damaged it may need an entire roll installing to fix it, whereas damaged tile floors may only require a tile or two replacing to repair the damage.

For areas where design is important, such as reception and public rooms, there are usually more design options available for LVT. Modern printing technology has made wood effect or stone pattern LVT tiles look very realistic.

LVT will generally last longer than sheets or composite tiles and can turn out to be more cost effective in the long term.

Advances in LVT manufacture have increased the lifetime of the tiles making LVT floors suitable for heavy traffic areas.

Water resistance

Any sensible Cheshire business will expect their staff and clients to come in from heavy rain outside, often dripping water and leaving mud on the floor. Vinyl is water resistant, and liquids and dirt can easily be cleaned up. If there is a flood, vinyl will be fine up to a point, but like most floor coverings, a floor left underwater for a pronged period will probably need replacing.

Where not to install vinyl

Vinyl is suitable for most applications but is not the best floor type for industrial kitchens or manufacturing areas where concrete or epoxy flooring is usually better.

Installing contract vinyl in Cheshire business premises

Cheshire is a county that has areas of outstanding natural beauty, great transport links and a rich historical heritage. It is rated a great place to live in, and many businesses have chosen Cheshire to start up in the county because of its skilled workforce. Many of these businesses choose to install vinyl flooring because it is both practical and stylish.

Cheshire vinyl suppliers and installers have a wide range of vinyl floor coverings to choose from at reasonable prices. A good supplier employs skilled fitters who can quickly install vinyl without disrupting business, provided that the subfloor is in good condition. Installation can be done overnight or at weekends when a business is closed.

If you remain uncertain about what type of vinyl is best for your business, a vinyl supplier will advise you. A good supplier will be more interested in finding the best vinyl flooring for a particular area than simply selling you the most expensive products.
