Sheet Vinyl flooring samples in North Dallas area

We have been unable to find a flooring store that carries samples of sheet vinyl flooring in the North Dallas area. They all have vinyl planks, ceramic and wood, but sheet vinyl must not be what people are buying. If anyone lives in this area and knows of a store that carries sheet vinyl samples, I would appreciate a heads up.

We never looked at sheet vinyl. Just looked on the websites such as Armstrong to see the designs.

We've come to the same conclusion. We've been looking for some for our kitchen and made the rounds of the flooring stores. Some don't even stock any. It's available but it's kind of surprising that it's not as common as it once was and things like peel n' stick seem to be making a comeback.

Did you pick your flooring based on the website picture? Did that workout OK?

We want to see a physical sample, because we are concerned that the color showing on our computer may not be the same as the actual flooring.

Yes, just used the website really. Pioneer sent some photos but could not tell anything from them. Love our flooring. Don't think we could have gone wrong though with what we have. Need to get a better photo.

We found it hard to find samples in stores. The easiest solution is to order a few from Armstrong directly. They cost about $5 per sample, but that is a small price to pay to be able to confirm your choice.

I have an IPS color corrected graphics card/monitor and the pictures from Armstrong were close but still not correct for the actual flooring. Ordering samples is the only way to make sure the color is what you want.

Same here ordered samples from Armstrong and Congoleum and had within a week or less. I believe ETI will only install from 3 different brands. I called Pioneer in Chilliwack to confirm, but do not remember the third brand.

I believe Mannington is the third brand

When I emailed Pioneer Dec 5, I was given 5 manufactures that they carry. They didn't say anything about ETI accepting or not accepting some. Congoleum, Mannington, Armstrong, Tarkett and Shaw.
