Vinyl has existed since 1926, but it didn’t become a common flooring product until the 1960s. Today, it represents a popular, affordable option for bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and other moist areas. It is also, a highly used material in ADU Constructions. This material provides six noteworthy benefits:

1. Highly Durable

The surface doesn’t easily become damaged. Unlike ceramic, it rarely breaks, cracks or chips. Consequently, it has a longer life span and homes don’t have to undergo as many remodeling projects. You needn’t worry about rotting or mildewed surfaces. These floors resist staining as well.

2. Easier Upkeep

Bathrooms are often messy, high-traffic areas, but it’s not hard to maintain this flooring. You can thoroughly clean it with a mop and a broom or vacuum cleaner. Although it’s possible to purchase tiles that require grout, most vinyl products have no grout lines to maintain.

3. Resists Moisture

A bathroom usually contains more water fixtures than any other portion of the home. Its flooring must withstand spills, leaks, drips and steam. Vinyl provides an appealing solution because it resists water damage with much greater success than most alternatives, such as wood and carpeting. Home Additions constructors like LEVI Construction find it to be a long-lasting and durable flooring option for their projects. 

4. Quiet Surfaces

If workers install it properly, a vinyl floor will produce relatively little noise when someone walks across it. This advantage makes it desirable for bathrooms because people need to visit the room late at night without disturbing others.

5. Feels Warmer

Materials like ceramic, brick and stone can become very cold when temperatures drop. On the other hand, vinyl improves comfort by staying relatively warm under all but the coldest conditions. This trait holds extra importance in a bathroom; people often have bare feet before and after they bathe.

6. Economical

Vinyl flooring generally costs one-quarter to one-third as much as a hardwood product. Los Angeles homeowners might pay the same amount for low-end ceramic tile, but they often spend substantially more. This material is also more affordable than linoleum.

To sum it up, vinyl floors last longer, save time and cut home maintenance costs. If you’d like to benefit from this product, please contact us today. Our bathroom remodeling professionals install attractive, high-quality floors that stand the test of time.
