So often architects and interior designers come to us for budgetary numbers and they are not sure of the specific materials at that time. Confusing the issue with a great deal of qualifications only makes it harder for them to get the job specified.
We want to keep it simple. YES! it takes more time to cut VCT, but it takes more time to handle sheet vinyl and linoleum.
So, the bottom line is the same for almost all resilient materials regardless of whether it is VCT, LVT, sheet vinyl or carpet.
