The Different Types of Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl is offered with three different types of wear surfaces: Vinyl no-wax, urethane, and enhanced urethane. Once a breakthrough flooring technology, no-wax is now basically an entry-level surface which still offers some resistance to scuffs and stains, but lacks the durability and low maintenance of urethane. And for even tougher resistance to black heel marks, dirt, and most household chemicals, enhanced urethane is the solution. In addition to choices in wear surface and grade, vinyl comes in both individual tiles and sheets.
Vinyl can be installed over most surface areas and is especially popular in kitchens and bathrooms (if moisture rated by the manufacturer). In most cases, vinyl maintenance just requires routine sweeping and mopping.
What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is actually a four-layer sandwich constructed of a protective wear layer over a decorative sheet containing the pattern, which is supported by a rigid core and a bottom balancing layer to help prevent warping. The result is one tough flooring that resists fading, stains, scratches and moisture. In fact, laminates frequently outlast real hardwood, tile, or stone floors.
Simple and easy to maintain, laminates are an excellent choice for high traffic areas like hallways and family rooms, and moisture areas such as kitchens and baths.
What is Hardwood Flooring?
Rich in appeal, hardwood flooring enhances virtually any décor style with its sense of natural strength and variety of finishes. Casual or formal, modern or classic, hardwood is an ideal choice for any home.
Generally, there two types of hardwood flooring: Solid or engineered. Whether it’s a strip or plank, solid hardwood flooring is a single piece of wood, which can easily be customized and can be re-sanded to change finishes. Engineered hardwood, on the other hand, is made of 3 to 5 layers laminated together with grains running at different angles. While engineered hardwood looks like solid hardwood, it is actually more structurally stable and can be used anywhere, even places like basements where moisture may be an issue.
Properly installed and sealed, hardwood flooring requires minimal care to maintain its good looks. Simply vacuum regularly and wipe weekly with a damp mop. And since it’s sealed, it won’t absorb spills and stain.
