Advantages & Disadvantages
Our customers have found that the biggest advantages to linoleum flooring are how easy it is to install, its low environmental impact, and its price point. Linoleum flooring is crafted from renewable ingredients such as cork dust, linseed oil, and rosin, making it less harmful on the environment to harvest these materials for flooring. This flooring type is also very easy to install; some variations of linoleum can even be installed right on top of existing floors. Additionally, linoleum flooring is praise for being a budget-friendly alternative to more expensive flooring types.
On the other hand, one drawback of linoleum flooring is that it doesn’t have the same level of durability as other flooring types. Linoleum flooring can be quite soft and this means it is susceptible to being scratched or dented from heavy objects. If the coloring of your linoleum flooring includes white, it can take on a yellowish tinge if the floors aren’t regularly cleaned and maintained.

We carry a diverse range of colors and styles of linoleum flooring, so we are certain you’ll find a product that matches your project’s requirements and your personal style.
