Expert Imitation

Modern vinyl flooring is made through several complex computer-driven processes that allow it to take on the look and texture of a wide range of other flooring styles. Here are a few of our favorites:

Shaped to Match

In addition to the realistic imaging used to create vinyl, it now is cut to fit the right size for each style of flooring. For example, you can choose vinyl planks that look like hardwood, or large vinyl sheets that are cut to fit your floor perfectly. The most common type of vinyl tile used to achieve the look of natural tile is luxury vinyl tile. This is the most high-end option in the vinyl world, but the extra cost is more than worth it. Each tile is created using advanced 3D imaging technology and careful texturing to realistically capture the look of hardwood or stone. You can even have grout added between stone-inspired tiles to make the look more convincing.



While some people install vinyl themselves, we have found that there can be some surprises along the way that are best for professionals to handle.
