|Pricing Vinyl Tile Flooring|
Vinyl tile typically are at least 25 percent more expensive than sheet vinyl per square foot. However, their ease of installation can make the cost insignificant. Adhesive-backed vinyl tiles are, obviously, more expensive than those without the adhesive -- you’re paying for built-in adhesive and the convenience. Fortunately, they are a popular commodity at flooring stores and building centers so they frequently are on sale.
If your budget allows, consider buying a better grade of vinyl tile than you planned. Check the thickness, smoothness of the edges, imperfections, and for pattern consistency. By shopping around you often can get a 20 percent discount on your materials, typically enough to buy better quality materials.
