Vinyl Flooring Showroom Baltimore Maryland

Vinyl Flooring is part of a family of floors called Resilient Floors. No other type of floor covering has the history nor has seen the changes that Resilient Flooring has. In the very early days, people called it “oil cloth” because it was flooring painted on to a canvas-like material with oil base paints.

Eventually the canvas-like material was replaced with a fiber type material called felt and the oil base paint was replaced by enamels. Eventually resilient flooring moved to a more durable product. It was made of oxidized linseed oil and put on to a similar felt backing. It was called Linoleum.

resilient flooring baltimore mdCertainly the best known name in Linoleum and resilient flooring is Armstrong. They made a pattern that many of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents had. It was a small red brick pattern #5352 and the story goes that if all the #5352 that was ever made was laid end to end, it would make a six foot wide path that would encircle the earth at the equator six times.

In the 1960’s, linoleum gave way to vinyl. Vinyl is a short name for polyvinylchloride, a plastic. Vinyl is less porous and much easier to care for. Essentially there were two types of vinyl floors. Inlaid vinyl consisted of colored vinyl granules that were used to create the design so that the color and pattern went all the way through to the backing. The other, RotoVinyl, had a very detailed picture printed onto a felt backing with chemically treated inks. A clear vinyl wearlayer was placed over top the picture and when it was “cooked,” the treated inks would cause the wearlayer to expand in some places and shrink in others resulting in perfect in registered embossing. Since inlaid vinyls could only be made in 6 foot widths, seams were required in almost every floor. As the quality and technology continued to improve in RotoVinyls and since it was made in 12 foot widths, inlaid vinyls have almost gone by the wayside.

In recent years there has been a huge resurgence of Resilient Floors. Patterns are so realistic, it is almost impossible to tell a resilient floor from the real thing.

What is the real thing about resilient floors is its durability and ease of maintenance.

Now new technology has come across the ocean once more and felt backings are being replaced with fiberglass backings. Glass back floors are leading the way now because of the comfort, durability, and flexibility they add.

Vinyl Tile has come equally as far. The looks of wood and ceramic/stone tile have been captured to perfection and has all the great advantages of a vinyl floor.

Just look at the floor to the left. It’s hard to believe it is a vinyl floor by Karndean.
