Timber flooring

Timber flooring or vinyl flooring for your Gold Coast property?

Timber floor boards have dominated the flooring industry for decades, being a popular choice for home owners and businesses alike for many reasons.

Timber flooring is still a popular choice today, but with the growing popularity of vinyl flooring, timber flooring does seem to have some stiff competition in the market place.

We will take a look at why people are starting to look at vinyl flooring as a great alternative to wooden floor boards.

Why choose vinyl flooring over timber flooring?

Timber flooring is a beautiful addition to any home, and there’s no denying that it can really enhance the look of your Gold Coast home, however vinyl flooring options include a wooden floorboard effect. Essentially, the vinyl flooring mimics timber flooring, so you can have a vinyl floor that gives you that premium look.

Timber flooring is a great hardwearing flooring option, however in rooms that are subject to moisture, such as the laundry, kitchen or bathroom, timber flooring is not suitable as they will sustain water damage. When you still want the wooden floor board appearance without the maintenance issues, vinyl flooring can be a great alternative. Not only will you get a beautiful floor board effect, but vinyl flooring has very few seams, and any seams they do have are sealed, so there is nowhere for moisture to be trapped and create mould.

Timber flooring has been a popular choice for many years, but is a major investment. Not only does timber flooring come with a hefty price tag, it is also quite a process to install. Why go to the expense and hassle when you can look at installing vinyl flooring for a fraction of the cost. Vinyl flooring is quite easy to install if you follow the instructions, you can have perfect flooring in no time.

Vinyl flooring can dress up your Gold Coast home ready for sale, or rent, without costing a fortune. Giving it a relatively inexpensive make over.

When you have an investment property, you want to get the best returns without spending a small fortune. Vinyl flooring is a cost-effective way to give your Gold Coast investment a make-over and modernise the interior.

If you are selling your Gold Coast home, you want it looking its best without spending a fortune. Since most buyers are motivated by emotion, you want them to get a great first impression. If the flooring looks old and tatty it can put some people off, but with the addition of some vinyl flooring you can get a beautiful finish without spending a fortune.

Timber flooring is popular due to its durability, to keep it looking its best it does need to be buffed and repolished at least every three years, this will keep moisture at bay, however a deep scratch can mean a complete sand back and recoat and polish which can be most costly. Vinyl floors have no maintenance. Once laid, you can expect twenty years of wear from them.

Much like timber flooring, vinyl flooring is great for people with allergies. They are easy to clean, and with such few seams, and of those seams they have they are sealed, there is nowhere for dirt and bacteria to sit.
