YOUR TRUSTED VANCOUVER
MARMOLEUM FLOORING STORE
If you’re looking for a floor that’s durable, easy to maintain, and extremely resilient - then marmoleum flooring could be the perfect choice. A variety of linoleum flooring, marmoleum is designed to be more durable, sustainable, and odor-free. Marmoleum flooring is a relatively affordable flooring option, giving you great value for money. At Floors Depot, we see that marmoleum continues to be a very popular product, both for new builds and renovations.
Linoleum flooring is popular for two main reasons: durability and moisture resistance. Linoleum is naturally resistant to moisture, making it appropriate for areas that need a little water-resistance. An advantage of linoleum over similar products like vinyl is its longevity - linoleum can easily last over three decades!
Linoleum flooring is also incredibly durable. The product is naturally resistant to scuffing, stains, and wear and tear, and is easily maintained in top condition with basic cleaning. It also makes for a quiet surface (perfect for high-traffic areas) and retains heat well.
Since opening our doors in 2005, Floors Depot has been proud to be the premier flooring services and products provider in the Greater Vancouver Area. Let our almost two decades’ of experience work for you so that you can focus on the next step of your renovation with peace of mind.
Marmoleum is a special variant of linoleum which was introduced by the Forbo corporation. It shares the properties of linoleum while being more environmentally friendly. This product is a great choice for anyone with odour or chemical sensitivities.
A classic flooring product, linoleum has been on the market for over one hundred years. Vinyl flooring was introduced to the market as a competitor or imitator of this original product. In contrast with vinyl, linoleum is made from blends of renewable, natural materials such as plant oils and wood flour, making it a more environmentally friendly choice. Some linoleum products come with more extensive environmental certifications to appeal to green-minded consumers.
When compared to vinyl flooring, linoleum is not waterproof, more of a water-resistant product. However, it still resists moisture much better than hardwood, making it suitable for many areas like kitchens. While linoleum is also somewhat more expensive, both to purchase and to install. A properly installed linoleum floor is easy to maintain and can last up to twice as long as a vinyl floor.
MARMOOLEUM FLOORING INSTALLATION
When it comes time to install your linoleum floor, Floors Depot is your ideal partner for a painless and pleasant installation that leaves you with a floor you’ll be completely satisfied with. After reviewing our extensive collection of samples in the comfort of your own home and making your selection, sit back and let us do the work.
Linoleum installation is comparable to vinyl sheet installation, but somewhat more difficult. Linoleum is measured and cut from sheets, before being glued down with an adhesive. However, linoleum is a tougher material and can be trickier to work with. Leave it to the pros!
After choosing your desired flooring product (having trouble deciding – talk with one of our experts!), our team will come to your property to provide a detailed quotation.
When the day of installation arrives, our team will arrive and carefully move any furniture out of the area where the new flooring is to be installed. Then we will remove the old flooring and install the new product. Finally, we’ll return your home to the same condition we found it in – just with a new floor! We’re happy to say we’re in and out in less than a day.

LATEST FLOORS DEPOT REVIEWS
We required an emergency floor replacement due on very short notice. We called Alex at 4pm on Friday afternoon and he was there by 6. Within days our floor was replaced and we were able to move back in. Alex and his team did an outstanding job. Their customer service is excellent. Marjan and I highly recommend Floors Depot!
Alex was a clear communicator. The job was done quickly and he was accommodating to our tight schedule. When some unforeseen challenges came up with the renovation (out of his control) he solved it and kept the project on schedule. Our floors look great, and the whole experience was stress free. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone!
Great price and excellent service from the Floors Depot store! They did a beautiful job installing our new laminate floors and paying special attention to finishings and trims. Thank you for a job well done. I will definitely refer you to my family and friends.
VINYL FLOORING FAQ
What is the difference between vinyl and linoleum flooring?
Vinyl and linoleum flooring have a similar level of resilience and water resistance. However, vinyl is a synthetic product made from artificial materials, whereas linoleum is manufactured from natural materials. Marmoleum is a variant of linoleum manufactured to a higher standard.
Can I install vinyl flooring over my existing flooring surface?
One of our experts can answer this question during an in-home consultation. Generally, vinyl flooring can be installed over a smooth, seamless pre-existing surface. If the existing flooring surface is uneven, or is already a vinyl floor, we typically recommend removing it prior to installation.
How long does vinyl flooring last?
Vinyl flooring will last anywhere from 15-20 years, depending on the level of maintenance and wear. However, some varieties can last as long as 25 years.
