Vinyl plank flooring is an ideal choice for houses, offices, and other spaces that experience high amounts of foot traffic. This is because it is 100% water-resistant, and provides a superior level of durability.
Vinyl plank flooring is a common choice for kitchens, bathrooms, office waiting rooms, restaurants, and more! It requires minimal upkeep, while still providing a natural, polished appearance. And the best part? You won’t have to worry about scratches, dents, or discoloration. Furthermore, vinyl plank flooring is one of the strongest and most long-lasting flooring options available.
As an industry-leading flooring retailer in Edmonton, Alberta, our team at Freedom Flooring is proud to offer eye-catching, premium-quality selections to our customers. We go to great lengths to source vinyl flooring solutions that our clients can have confidence in, choosing only the highest-grade flooring selections available.
THE BENEFITS OF VINYL PLANK FLOORING:
Did you know that you can save almost half the cost of hardwood by opting for vinyl flooring instead? Many of the vinyl flooring options available today resemble hardwood so closely, it’s difficult to see the difference. And with some vinyl plank floors starting as low as $2.50 per square foot (as opposed to $8.50 per square foot for hardwood floors), it’s a great way to manage your flooring renovation budget.
Vinyl plank flooring is available in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns, making it an ideal floor choice for almost any space. Whether you’re looking for that classic, glossy hardwood finish, or you want something more textured and grainy, there’s a vinyl plank flooring solution to match your taste.
Vinyl flooring is available in a range of styles, textures, and finishes, making it a fantastic option for clients who already have a vision in mind for their space.
Vinyl plank flooring is significantly easier to install than hardwood flooring, and it also takes considerably less time to get the job done. In fact, a hardwood flooring installation typically takes days (sometimes weeks) for a flooring company to complete, while vinyl flooring projects can be executed in just a few hours.
Additionally, when opting for hardwood flooring, a subfloor foundation must be properly laid, and installers must take into consideration how the natural wood will expand and flex over time.
With vinyl plank floors, however, this is less of a concern, since the material is less susceptible to temperature changes or moisture damage. Vinyl flooring can even be installed over your previous flooring in many cases.
OUR INSTALLATION PROCESS
At Freedom Flooring, our trained and certified installers have the hands-on skills required to complete your flooring project with precision and care.
Our team of flooring professionals will come to your home, inspect the current condition of your flooring, and let you know if it will need to be removed, or if your new vinyl plank floor can be placed over your existing floors.
During this consultation, we will also measure your space to determine how much vinyl plank flooring will be required, and assess any unique features that may be of concern. This also allows us to provide you with a detailed, accurate quote so you can properly budget for your installation.
From there, our knowledgeable flooring installers will take the time to discuss the installation process with you, giving you an approximate timeline and discussing any preparation that will need to take place.
Then, before you know it, it’ll be time to get started.

- Remove rugs, drapes, wall hangings, and any other decor items that could fall or get in the way of the installation process.
- Disconnect all electronics within the installation zone and store them away.
- Cover any upholstered furniture with bedsheets or plastic to prevent staining from dust and dirt.

Vinyl Flooring Questions
Flooring contractors have the experience and knowledge to complete the installation in a short timeframe. They also have the skill and experience to ensure the final product will be perfectly aligned and will account for expansion that may occur over time. Additionally, doing it yourself probably won’t save you as much money as you think – it might even cost you more! For proper installation, you can’t just lay vinyl plank on top of existing flooring. Removing the flooring that’s currently in the room(s) and leveling the subfloor requires expensive tools and knowledge. You’ll also have to purchase extra vinyl plank to accommodate the mistakes you’re bound to make as an amateur. Save yourself from spending more money than you have to, and contact us for a free quote.
At Freedom Flooring, we offer vinyl plank flooring that has different levels of wear layers. You can talk to one of our team members about your dog’s breed and temperament to receive a recommendation for how thick you’ll want your wear layer.
Although we do offer waterproof vinyl plank flooring options, it is not recommended to use vinyl plank outside. This is because vinyl plank flooring is vulnerable to fading from direct UV rays. Many vinyl floor warranties also don’t cover outdoor use.
If you request an installation quote from Freedom Flooring, we will include underlayment in the estimated price. Depending on which type of vinyl plank you purchase it may come with an underlayment attached. If this is not the case, you will have to purchase an underlayment for your vinyl plank flooring separately. Cork is one of the most popular options for this, but we can give you a customized recommendation based on your exact needs.
Vinyl plank flooring holds up extremely well to moisture, especially if you opt for one of the waterproof options Freedom Flooring offers. Another addition you may want to consider in moisture-prone areas is installing a vapor barrier underneath your vinyl flooring. However, it is important to consider the installation method when opting for vinyl flooring in these rooms as some glues won’t hold up well to water.
