Replacing Carpet With Vinyl Flooring

I am contemplating replacing my 30 year old carpeting with one piece vinyl. Does anyone have any advice for me? What brand? Color? I have 7 inside cats and one dog and I'm thinking it might be easier to keep clean. My husband is in a wheelchair and he weighs about 300 pounds. Will vinyl stand that kind of wear and tear? Also, should I consider no-wax vinyl? Has anyone else replaced carpet with vinyl? Thanks for any advice and tips.

You are making a wise choice in removing carpet and going with vinyl flooring. I'd choose the no wax kind. After several years the top coating (no wax surface) or the flooring wears off. I guess I'm trying to say you get what you pay for. If you spend more money to get a premium product, it will last longer, but the cheaper kinds are easily replaced.

I think you can expect your no wax vinyl flooring to last about 15 years.

I'm considering doing the same thing, removing carpet and replacing it with a top grade vinyl. I have 7 cats and think the vinyl will be easier to keep clean. A plus for your husband is the wheelchair will be much easier for him to use on the vinyl.
