What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring is a multi-layer construction that is durable and waterproof. It has a solid vinyl core topped with a printed vinyl base and a wear layer. These synthetic materials enhance the moisture resistance of the flooring. Vinyl flooring also offers more versatility in design compared to laminate flooring. Vinyl flooring used to be limited in design options, but modern vinyl has been upgraded to a variety of styles and patterns, which can render not only wood-like outside, but also stone and ceramic flooring.



What is laminate flooring?

Laminate flooring is a great option for homeowners who like the look of hardwood flooring but don't want to spend a lot of money on flooring materials. One of the first man-made alternatives to hardwood flooring, laminate flooring was first manufactured in the 1970s. Laminate layers are similar to vinyl flooring but are made from a different type of material.

Vinyl flooring and laminate flooring share many qualities, such as being affordable and easy to install on your own. But they also have some distinct differences. When it comes to looking and style, laminate flooring tends to be of a higher quality. It comes with more realistic embossing and more closely resembles the look of hand-scraped hardwood. Laminate, on the other hand, has a core made of wood byproducts. This makes it tend to be a little thicker than vinyl flooring, which can bring more warmth and softness when standing or walking. The main difference between laminate and vinyl flooring is water resistant. At this point, vinyl flooring is far more water-resistant than laminate flooring.
