If you are like me, you may immediately think of vinyl records, or perhaps vinyl shower curtains, or maybe even the old vinyl flooring you saw in your grandparent’s house when you were a kid when you think about Vinyl.
Get that out of your mind – vinyl is now a flooring solution. Not only that, but it is one of the most popular flooring options in the world.
Vinyl flooring is nothing new – it has been around for decades! There are, however, many new changes that have occurred with the help of advancements in technology that have made the vinyl of today nothing like the vinyl of the past.
Pros of waterproof vinyl flooring
Vinyl flooring is pretty much the Superman of the flooring industry; it is durable, comes in a variety of wear layer options, can be rated for high traffic areas, can be installed on any level, and the list goes on.
Not to mention that now you can get vinyl that truly has a real wood look and feel, thanks to the new high definition printing capabilities and the added wood look surface textures. This really is the closest to waterproof wood flooring that you can get.
Since vinyl itself is naturally water resistant as well as being resistant to mold and mildew, it is no wonder why vinyl floors are one of the top choices for moisture prone areas in home.
Cons of waterproof vinyl flooring
There are not many concerns when it comes to using vinyl as a water resistant flooring option. Be sure to choose a product that has been properly tested from a reputable source so you can rest assured your new flooring is safe for the whole family.
