What Is Cap and Cove Flooring?

Cap and Cove Flooring is a specific installation technique for sheet vinyl flooring. Unlike traditional vinyl installations that stop at the wall base, Cap and Cove extend the vinyl material a few inches up the wall, creating a smooth, curved cove at the meeting point. This cove eliminates the right-angled corner where dirt, moisture, and even pests can accumulate. A separate capping strip is then applied along the top edge of the vinyl on the wall, providing a clean and finished look. This method creates a seamless and watertight barrier, making Cap and Cove ideal for areas requiring superior hygiene and easy cleaning.

These guys have done such an amazing job with our flooring. We have had an extension so have had all trades people in over the past few months and these guys have been the best, so friendly and efficient, some flooring wasn't up to scratch so they sent it back and got us new materials to ensure the job was completed to a high standard. Thank you
