Here are some of the benefits and drawbacks to choosing vinyl flooring:

Pros

  • Vinyl flooring is almost as durable as some other options, but it costs a lot less, which means this flooring is an affordable choice for renovating your home.
  • Vinyl can be installed over cement, tile, laminate, and almost any other flat surface to save you money and time.
  • When it comes to cleaning, vinyl is easy to maintain and keep looking new. Simple care can prolong the look of your vinyl floors for years to come.
  • Most vinyl is water-resistant which makes it a great option for bathrooms and kitchens.
  • A commercial-grade wear layer on certain brands of vinyl promotes even more durability and longevity for homes and businesses with heavy foot traffic.

Cons

  • If vinyl is exposed to direct sunlight, it can fade over time. Make sure you protect your home from UV rays with light-blocking curtains to keep your vinyl looking new.
  • Once glued down, vinyl can be extremely difficult to remove.
  • For those concerned about the environment, vinyl is not a biodegradable product.
  • Some types of vinyl are vulnerable to damage. If you drop a heavy object on it or if you place heavy furniture on top, it can show dents and scratches.
