PVC Floors

PVC Floors

Over the last couple of years, PVC flooring technology has changed dramatically, again making it a very popular modern floor cover. PVC or polyvinyl chloride can occasionally be confused with vinyl, which is also a popular cover.

With their properties, these two types of coverings are very similar, but the major difference is that PVC is softened and vinyl is hardened. PVC is bought in rolls. It is sold in many different widths, so you can fundamentally eliminate joints, making the floor look solid. Laying PVC is a relatively simple task, but it is still recommended it be left to experts. The laying must be done on a completely smooth and level floor of self-leveling concrete.

The entire surface of the floor is glued and only a professional is able to lay it down quickly enough so that the floor does not start to peel off in the corners or wrinkle over time.

As far as the overall maintenance of PVC floors is concerned, it is relatively simple. The worst is when this type of floor gets damaged.

If such damage should occur, unfortunately, it is not possible to replace only one part, as the case of hardened vinyl or laminate. The entire floor will have to be removed and replaced with a new one. Therefore, it is also generally advisable to choose a higher load class for PVC floors, especially in high traffic areas, such as living rooms, kitchens or hallways. PVC floor coverings are available in a wide range of variations, so everyone can find the right one for them.
