Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Castro Valley, CA

Vinyl flooring is one of the fastest emerging categories in the décor industry, and its popularity truly attests to our busy times. Decidedly different than your grandma’s linoleum floors, today’s manufactured flooring truly has it all, from the high-definition digital printing used to create authentic hardwood and stone visuals to its durable construction made to manage everyday life.

With a wide inventory of vinyl plank and tile, we have the perfect addition to all your favorite interiors, including waterproof vinyl flooring. Let’s learn more about vinyl flooring and why it might be your next best thing.


Types of Vinyl Flooring


Vinyl flooring is found in various formats, but the bulk of its offerings come in the forms of vinyl plank and vinyl tile. Both types of vinyl flooring are easy to install, can be incorporated into a customized look that’s unique, are warm and soft to walk on, and are easy to clean. They also resist moisture and won’t ever shrink, expand, crack, or dent.


Like traditional tile, vinyl tile can be used as bathroom or kitchen flooring as well as on your walls. Certain vinyl tile is fully waterproof. Luxury vinyl tile is often textured on the surface, so it’s wonderful flooring for the area near your tub or shower, preventing accidental slips and falls. It is soft and comfortable to walk on.

Vinyl tile is easily installed, and no grout is needed – although it’s still an option, if you wish. It can go directly over your existing sub-floor, with no preparations necessary. Vinyl tile is easy to care for: truly, all it needs is an occasional mopping or sweeping.


Hardwood’s signature textures and finishes are captured perfectly in wood-look luxury vinyl. Whether you prefer a tile or a plank, wood-look vinyl plank is exactly what you need. Easier for most to manage compared real hardwood, wood-look luxury vinyl doesn’t ever require sanding, refinishing, staining, or polishing. A lot of vinyl flooring products can be clicked together to form a floating floor, eliminating the need for messy adhesives or nails. Its care requirements are quite simple: simply do an occasional sweeping or light mopping and go about your day.


With so much going on beneath the surface, we don’t feel it’s fair to directly compare luxury vinyl plank to actual hardwood. Sometimes vinyl plank is the smarter decision. Vinyl plank can withstand moisture without denting or warping and it won’t ever have to be refinished. Polishing has suddenly become obsolete. These planks are comfortable on your feet: a few are even 100% waterproof. One of our favorite types of waterproof vinyl plank is made by COREtec Technology.


Is Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?


Luxury vinyl flooring resists everyday moisture, and both planks and tiles are fit for everyday splashes and spills. Certain vinyl products are completely waterproof, making these options better suited for mudrooms, kitchens & bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Waterproof vinyl flooring establishes a bulletproof barrier between life and your subfloor. It’s a wise option if you have pets or little kids at home.
