What is Vinyl Flooring?

Vinyl floors are made of resins and filler materials that create resilient planks or tiles. They are usually ideal for any surface regardless of moisture or humidity levels and can be installed virtually anywhere. Vinyl floors are naturally sound absorbent and moisture barriers and can take heavy commercial abuse. They are healthy, non-allergenic, and extremely easy to clean. They can be waxed and refreshed with very minimal work.

Vinyl floors have seen tremendous advancement in the past fifty years and are now available in various shapes, styles, colors and construction. Besides the standard glue down vinyl planks & tiles you see in hospitals, medical offices & grocery stores; vinyl comes as a locking floor as well which is ideal for homes & offices. The technology is simply; some manufacturers use Resin core while other use the vinyl itself for the locking mechanism.
