Features of Vinyl Flooring

Unlike laminates, vinyl flooring is composed of 100 percent polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It resists moisture even better than laminate flooring does and offers endless, visually realistic, design versatility. It comes in three formulas—no-wax, urethane, and enhanced urethane—and retails in three forms: sheets, tiles, and planks. Which of the three is best depends largely on where the flooring will be installed, and for what kind of foot traffic.

  • No-wax vinyl flooring, because of its one-side single coating, is the most economical and the least wear-resistant option. No-wax vinyl sheets work well where visibility is low or foot traffic is light, such as closets and utility rooms.
  • Urethane vinyl floors are made of more durable material and double-coated to resist scuffs and stains in moderate-to-heavy residential foot traffic areas. Urethane tiles or planks are perfect for entryway, kitchen, and living room floors.
  • Enhanced urethane vinyl floors feature a high-quality finish on industrial-strength vinyl. These floors are designed for commercial applications in office buildings, public venues, shop floors, and the like. This formula withstands constant heavy foot traffic and performs brilliantly.

Reasons to Consider Vinyl Flooring


Vinyl flooring imitates more expensive options like real wood, ceramic tiles, or natural stone for far less money. Installation is also less labor-intensive, making it less expensive and faster to install.


Any color and texture can be photographically reproduced on vinyl. Manufacturers already market countless combinations on sheets, tiles, and planks. Vinyl flooring can also be custom-printed to order. It can be installed over any floor and in any environment—such as basements and bathrooms where constant moisture might damage other materials.

Ease of Maintenance

No need to use expensive specialty cleaners, which can ruin the finish of some vinyl floors. Solid vinyl sheets also have no grouted joints where dirt can lodge. Tiles and planks install almost seamlessly, so they're easy to sweep and mop with basic household cleaners, or just a little soap and water.

Vinyl is also moisture-resistant, and its inner core provides effective insulations against extreme heat and cold. Vinyl flooring dampens ambient noise, and because it resists stains and dust accumulation, it’s also hypoallergenic.
