COMPARE OUR Fiberglass Vinyl Backing vs. Felt-Backed Vinyl

The backing of our flooring is made with fiberglass fibers which are very pliable.
The uppermost layers of both fiberglass vinyl and felt-backed vinyl are similar – with different performance levels of our top urethane layer that resists stains, scuffs, and scratches. Traditional felt-backed vinyl requires permanent glue to adhere to the subfloor, while fiberglass backing is installed as a loose lay or full lay – meaning you use a releasable pressure-sensitive glue (or no glue in some instances) that is not permanent and can be pulled up and laid back down if necessary. Also, the unique qualities of fiberglass enable the vinyl floor to lay flat without curling at the edges or buckling. Felt floors will curl at the edges, unless they are secured with a permanent adhesive. Fiberglass vinyl floors can be installed on grade or below grade anywhere in your home. They’re particularly recommended for basements that can experience dampness. Another important feature related to backing is dimensional stability. Fiberglass vinyl won’t shrink, warp, or change size after exposure to wetness, or crack after repeated handling.
Loose-Lay Offers Design Flexibility
A loose-lay installation opens up many decorating options. It also makes it easier to install a new floor yourself if you’re a DIYer – and it allows you the freedom to change out your floor more frequently.
