- Easy to Install
- Low Environmental Impact
Our customers have found that the biggest advantages to linoleum flooring are how easy it is to install, its low environmental impact, and its price point. Linoleum flooring is crafted from renewable ingredients such as cork dust, linseed oil, and rosin, making it less harmful on the environment to harvest these materials for flooring. This flooring type is also very easy to install; some variations of linoleum can even be installed right on top of existing floors. Additionally, linoleum flooring is praised for being a budget-friendly alternative to more expensive flooring types. With recent advances in printing technology, linoleum can often imitate higher end flooring materials such as wood and stone tiles.
- Soft, Prone to Dents and Scratches
- Changes in Humidity
One drawback of linoleum flooring is that it can be quite soft and this means it is susceptible to being scratched or dented from heavy objects. Linoleum also naturally constricts and contracts, especially if moisture is involved. This means linoleum is not ideal in the bathroom. If there is a large change in humidity your floors may warp. Moisture from improper installation can also lead to warping and other damage. Look to trusted flooring professionals like Floor Coverings International NW Dallas to properly install your linoleum flooring.
Linoleum is a great flooring option that should not be considered the same as vinyl. Use this information to help guide your decision for the best flooring for you and your home.
