Vinyl Flooring

Flooring can completely make or break a space. Spent a lot of money on a repaint, new furniture, or luxurious lighting? Doesn’t matter. With the wrong floor, that could all be for nothing. 

It also needs to withstand years of heavy usage, ensuring that it not only remains undamaged but also looks as good as it did the day it was installed. 

For years now, AOC Flooring has been Gloucester’s preferred choice for flooring, having supplied and installed new floors for a wide range of clients and places. With 30 years’ combined experience, we deploy the latest technologies and features to find the perfect flooring options for our customers. 

We offer a long list of flooring options to ensure the best fit for any home or business, and vinyl flooring represents a particularly popular choice for our clients. 

Here’s everything you need to know about choosing vinyl flooring for your project. 

There are many reasons why our clients choose vinyl flooring over popular alternatives like wood or carpet. For one, it’s more cost-effective than hardwood floors. Chosen well, it can also provide a natural look – to the point where you can’t tell the difference – while being more resistant to scratches, dents, and water damage. 

Maintenance vinyl flooring is simple. It doesn’t require any special treatments and, since it’s less vulnerable to damage than wood flooring, it doesn’t tend to need any disruptive repair work every few years. 

It’s also hygienic, water-resistant, and safe, making it great for busy dining halls and restaurants where spills and crumbs are a given. Plus, it comes in a massive variety of styles and colours, so finding the best fit for your space.

When is Vinyl Flooring the Right Choice?

Our most notable clients for vinyl flooring are healthcare facilities – spaces that need easy-to-clean floors for hygiene reasons and also heavy resilience to footfall. But having said that, you don’t need to choose vinyl flooring for practical reasons alone. 

We can help you cherry-pick the best option from hundreds of different vinyl products to really make your space come alive.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still need a little convincing? To help you make your mind up, we’ve compiled several of our most frequently asked questions, which should hopefully give you all the information you need to make your choice.
It’s hard to say whether vinyl flooring is categorically better than wood – both have their specific benefits. But vinyl flooring certainly outshines hardwood floors when it comes to water resistance and easy maintenance.
It is essentially impervious to moisture damage, which makes it far easier to maintain. Vinyl flooring is also easy to clean. All you need is a vacuum and a mop, with a few cleaning products to keep the space consistently sparkly! Hardwood floors, on the other hand, will require more maintenance.
Plus, vinyl is significantly cheaper than wood.

Whether there are weaknesses in vinyl flooring depends on your specific situation. One of the key things you need to think about is whether this flooring type fits with your property as a whole. Vinyl flooring is more difficult to remove than other installations, so you will need to know that it’s the right fit before jumping in.

If you drop us a message, we’d be happy to talk through your specific needs and which options will work best for you.

It can do, but you will need to make sure of this before the installation process. Just because something is heavily durable and known for its functionality, that doesn’t mean vinyl flooring is a functional option over an aesthetic one.

As mentioned before, we offer a range of different product types, so it should be easy to find something that is both functional and beautiful for your space!

There’s no rule that states vinyl flooring is better for commercial use over domestic. Once again, it depends on your situation and what you personally prefer. It’s important to note that vinyl flooring is incredibly durable, which means it can be installed in any room you choose at home. Its durability also makes it an excellent choice for workplaces with heavy footfall – such as the healthcare facilities we mentioned earlier.

Some types of vinyl flooring can be installed on a DIY basis, but we’d always recommend expert installation – particularly if you want your flooring to be up to the task of withstanding whatever you throw its way.
Vinyl floor that is not efficiently installed doesn’t always last as long as a vinyl floor that’s been installed by experts in the field. We are those experts, and we can make sure your new space is the best version of itself!
