Advantages & Disadvantages
Our customers love VCT because it is versatile, quiet, and resilient. Because vinyl composition tile can look like a number of other flooring types, you have many style options when you choose to have it installed. Vinyl composition tile floors are used in a number of settings from grocery stores to hospitals, even computer labs and schools. They often provide slip resistance, static reduction, and are gouge resistant. Many manufacturers, including Armstrong and Mannington, provide take-back or recycling programs to prevent flooring waste. Vinyl composition tiles can also be considered eco-friendly as most of the product is made up of limestone – an abundant natural ingredient. There are also non-PVC alternatives. It is also incredibly resilient, which is why it’s such a popular flooring type for commercial spaces and other high-traffic areas.
On the other hand, there are some drawbacks associated with vinyl composition tile. First, the subfloor that you have your vinyl composition tiles installed on should be completely level. Installing this flooring type on non-level surfaces such as stairs can be tricky, and isn’t recommended. Additionally, while this type of flooring is extremely durable you shouldn’t have vinyl composition tile installed if your space will be exposed to extreme temperatures. Extreme weather situations can cause widespread damage or breakage in this flooring type.
We have access to a wide range of types, colors, and styles of vinyl composition tile, so you’re sure to find a product that suits your project’s specific needs.
