When it comes to choosing a type of flooring, more and more people are opting for vinyls in Wallasey. Usually, families with small children opt for vinyl flooring because it is easier to maintain. However, vinyl is not the only flooring material available, there is wood, tiles, rugs, and carpets. The most popular choice is wood.
Wirral Flooring is frequently asked by customers in Wallasey whether vinyls or wood flooring is better? According to Wirral Flooring, there are some important points to consider when choosing either flooring material. Starting with cost, vinyl flooring is relatively more affordable wood. This depends on the quality of the vinyl and the wood, but even for high-end vinyl flooring, customers will not have to shell out as much as they would for wood. The only drawback of vinyl is that it is more expensive to install, but in terms of maintenance the cost of installation will work itself out. In terms of longevity, hardwood that is maintained can last for generations. This depends on the type of wood. Homeowners can apply treatments to increase the strength of the wood. If hardwood is damaged, it can be refinished, and or repaired, bringing it back. On the other hand, vinyl has two types: solid and printed. The latter has a layer on it which provides protection to the floor’s surface. How long the vinyl flooring will last depends on how thick the protective coating is. Solid vinyl has a surface that can easily scratch or mar over time. Usually, manufacturers provide a warranty of 10 to 20 years for vinyl flooring. In terms of versatility, vinyl can take on the appearance of any wood grain. With vinyl, homeowners can also opt to install additional padding underneath the vinyl flooring. This will create the appearance of hardwood. It will provide extra insulation and make the room more energy efficient. On the other hand, the wood species, the grade, color, and cut will determine its versatility.
