Pros and Cons of Vinyl Flooring


Vinyl flooring has made tremendous improvements over the past decade all thanks to improved technology. Today’s vinyl flooring is durable, water resistant and available in many options. Thinking about re-doing the flooring in your home? Here are some pros and cons about choosing vinyl floors.

Advantages of choosing vinyl flooring.

Thanks to it’s durability, vinyl flooring is a great choice for homeowners whose homes see a high amount of foot traffic. Families with young kids and dogs will most likely benefit from this type of material as vinyl flooring will rarely need to be replaced. One of the best benefits? It’s less expensive than wood and the color choices are virtually endless.

Disadvantages of choosing vinyl flooring.

Although vinyl can withstand a high amount of foot traffic, the material does not hold up as well under heavy loads. Sharp objects such as unprotected chair legs could very well dent the material. Over time, some colors of vinyl flooring can fade if they are exposed to direct sunlight over the years, resulting in the need to replace entire sections. At Khouri Flooring, we recommend not choosing vinyl for sunrooms or indoor/outdoor rooms.
