I am planning the renovation of one of my auditoriums and I am trying to decide what material to put under my seats.
At the moment I have 2x2 vinyl tiles and I hate them. They are cracked and loose all over the place, however they are about 20 years old.

I looked at different vinyl laminates and I do like these a lot because they seem to have a warmer feel to them. However one of the 2 installers I am talking to, tells me it wouldn't be good choice, because of scratches, rips and so on. THe other installer tells me that won't be a problem.Both claim to have spoken to their sales rep.

Anybody out there who has a vinyl laminate under the seats? Any thoughts on the issue?

Thanks,
JAy

mmmh, garage flooring... interesting.
Not really the look I want to go for, but I keep that in mind as an option.
Thanks,

Does not look like something in a "garage"... This is in a very high end auditorium with $ 400..00 per seat-- new wood back seats with velvet curtains/

Oh no, I don't think it doesn't look good. it just that I am trying to give the theater a more classic look since it is more than 100 years old.

most people will never see the floor/ I would go with the combination of cheap and toughest and save your money for the stuff people will see.

Get a vinyl laminate. They make a laminate wood floor made out of vinyl. Very very durable and looks so real!

I agree with your floor guy. Vinyl tile are easier to replace and repair if needed than a sheet product. Most of the vinyl sheet products aren't as tough as the vinyl tiles. I had a floor guy tell me that too.

I would go with either an epoxy floor finish or vinyl tile. I would stay away from sheet vinyl because it is not as easy to repair and seams will sometimes lift over time and start to break and tear. Commercial vinyl tiles I do not think look as good but will hold up over time. There are some very nice vinyl wood flooring now that looks great but make sure you get the kind that is glued to the floor not floating. Plus they are very easy to replace if needed.
