Sheet Vinyl Flooring

Sheet Vinyl flooring came to prominence in the 1950's during the housing boom after World War 2. It was inexpensive to install, resisted moisture and spills, and was especially popular in kitchens and baths.

We Have the Best Installation Services in the Area

Sheet Vinyl is one of the most durable floor coverings made. It is resistant to chemicals that would ruin carpet or other forms of flooring, and is extremely water resistant. To be installed, a full spread glue is applied to the flooring substrate. The vinyl is then carefully cut and adhered to the floor. Many choose to have vinyl climb partially up the wall to achieve even better waterproofing – this method is called “cove”. We recommend having sheet vinyl installed by our in-house vinyl team at Warehouse Direct to ensure a professional and effective installation.

At Warehouse Direct Flooring, we have a large in-stock inventory of both residential and commercial sheet vinyl. Our in-stock sheet vinyl is exceptionally cost effective, especially when compared to other flooring options. We stock both modern and vintage patterns that will fit into virtually any décor.

Pros & Cons

Pros and Cons of Sheet-Vinyl

Many people choose to install sheet vinyl throughout their entire home. That said, the colors, patterns, and durability make it especially stylish in a kitchen, bathroom, workshop or commercial space. Before you decide on whether or not vinyl flooring is right for you, here are some pros and cons to consider:


First and foremost, very few floors resist dirt and water like vinyl. When installed correctly, vinyl is virtually waterproof – it is nearly impossible for any liquid to soak through. Dirt and dust act the same way. You can wet mop, sweep, or vacuum sheet vinyl to make it look as good as new.


If you can think of a pattern or color combination, chances are that it has already been printed onto vinyl flooring. From squares, triangles, circles, to wood grain, brick patterns, and marble, chances are that you will find exactly what you were searching for. At Warehouse Direct we carry close to 1000 sheet vinyl options.


Vinyl flooring manufacturers warranty their flooring for 15 years or more. If properly installed, it is common for vinyl to look like new even after 20 years with only minimal care and upkeep.


Vinyl often has a layer of felt added to the backing. This makes sheet vinyl much softer to walk on than wood or concrete. It also makes vinyl comfortable to stand on for long periods of time – one of the reasons why sheet vinyl is a preferred choice for kitchens.


Vinyl flooring is one of the lowest cost options a homeowner can choose. Some of the most basic vinyl products cost pennies on the dollar compared to other forms of flooring. Despite its low cost, the performance of vinyl rates higher than most alternatives.


Sheet Vinyl is made from polyvinyl chlorides and will emit volatile organic compounds, particularly when it is brand new. VOC’s are not eco-friendly and should probably not be present with children nearby.


Because Sheet Vinyl is spongy, it will retain furniture marks from furniture that sits on it for lengthy periods of time. The impressions may not come out.


While it wont harm your home value, adding sheet vinyl won’t add to it either.
