Low Maintenance Resilient Flooring

Resilient Floor - Carpet World

A practical product that comes in many patterns, resilient flooring is sheet or tile flooring, usually with a pattern printed on the surface.

Common types are:

  • sheet flooring (cushion); a thin layer of vinyl over spongy back;
  • vinyl composition tile;
  • linoleum sheet or tile;
  • rubber sheet or tile;
  • cork.

Advantages of Resilient Flooring:

  • Available in a wide range of colours and patterns.
  • Is moderately durable.
  • Comes in range of prices.
  • Is easy to install.
  • Fairly easy to clean and maintain.
  • Is reasonably comfortable to stand on for long periods of time.

Considerations:

  • Tiles may curl.
  • Most resilient flooring is thin. Any irregularities in the floor underneath will show through.
  • Minor problems such as blisters, scratches, tears and holes need to be repaired quickly.
  • Extensive damage cannot be repaired. Rubber flooring can deteriorate from water left standing on it.

Cost:

  • Cost varies considerably. Certain types of resilient flooring such as peel-and-stick tiles are easy to install and therefore the overall cost can be reduced.
