Cost of Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl floors are available at price points to fit any budget and come in a wide selection of colors, patterns, textures and designs. No matter what variety or style you choose to install in your home, the price will be relatively low when compared to other flooring alternatives.
The price of vinyl sheet per square foot typically ranges from $0.50-$5.00, varying based on the thickness of the top wear layer, as well as the thickness of the overall product. The thicker the wear layer, the more protection offered and thus the more expensive the vinyl sheet. An enhanced urethane layer that offers additional scratch and stain protection is another factor that often increases the price per square foot.
Other Costs to Consider when Installing Vinyl Floors
Homeowners with families and pets gravitate toward vinyl floors because of their resistance to scratches and stains, easy maintenance and durability in high traffic areas. Installation can also be relatively easy for homeowners, allowing them to skip the costs of professional contractor. However, it is always recommended to at least consult with a professional flooring contractor to make sure vinyl is an appropriate flooring material for the specific space. For homeowners who prefer convenient and professional installation, vinyl floor installation costs are economical ranging from $0.75-$2.00 per square foot. These costs often vary based on geography and the flooring provider. A reputable flooring company will likely offer installation at a discounted price or as a part of the purchase price of your floors.
Finally, homeowners must also remember to factor in the cost of removing and getting rid of their old floors. The price will depend on what type of flooring material is being removed and how much is being removed. Also, if the removal of your old floor reveals a damaged subfloor, you will have to add costs for proper subfloor preparation. It is crucial that subfloor preparation is not overlooked as this is the foundation for your new floors and helps to increase their longevity.
