VCT is relatively inexpensive to install, but it must be stripped, waxed, and polished on a regular basis. The continual maintenance VCT necessitates might cause its overall cost to surpass that of vinyl sheet flooring or luxury vinyl tile after time. Vinyl sheet and LVT both require little upkeep. However, if a roll of vinyl sheet is damaged, you have to re-cut and reinstall the whole roll rather than replacing one tile.
If you’re looking for a quicker install, consider LVT. The difference in quality between premium and low-end products is often minor, with similar designs available on the market. And when it comes to long-term value, LVT has the most design possibilities while offering the best long-term value of the three alternatives.
If you just need to use the space for a few years — like when a firm leases an office— or upfront expenditures are of paramount importance, VCT or vinyl sheet flooring are excellent choices. However, in general, LVT provides the best cost-to-life ratio.
Why select commercial vinyl flooring for your facility?
Vinyl is weather, sunlight, and heavy use-resistant, and many materials are pre-treated for cleaning and infection control. At the same time, the advent of digital graphic layers has given designers almost limitless design potential.
Vinyl is an excellent floor covering for almost every commercial setting because of its adaptability and endurance. Vinyl isn’t used as frequently in heavy-duty kitchens or industrial applications as it is in other areas. Quarry tile has shown to be durable enough to endure the harsh conditions of commercial kitchens, including high-moisture, high-impact environments. Polished concrete or epoxy flooring are other possible industrial flooring options.
Vinyl is a practical and visually attractive option for almost any other purpose. Many vinyl floors now come in high-quality finishes and durable surfaces at considerably lower prices than traditional materials, such as stone and wood.
We provide a life cycle costing analysis at Spectra Contract Flooring, which compares the cost of your floor up-front and over time. The majority of the time, LVT is found to be the more affordable choice in our studies.
