Vinyl is made from synthetic materials that are formed in layers. They’re made from combinations of different products such as plastic and wood. In most vinyl floors, the layers consist of UV acrylic coating, wear layer, print layer, PVC layer, core, and a built-in underlayment. Because of the thickness, it makes it a heavy-duty material.
- All the layers help protect the flooring from sun damage/heat, scratches, and stains.
- Vinyl is waterproof which makes it versatile, because this it takes little to no effort to clean the surface.
- The barrier it has is meant to withstand high-moisture areas of the home.
- Vinyl is a great option for bedrooms, kitchens, playrooms, offices, laundry rooms, and bathrooms.
Another benefit of vinyl flooring is the easy installation. Installation can be done in two common ways:

You should use this type of installation if you want the floor to be permanent. This installation leads to a firmer, more stable floor.
This is the easiest method to use and involves less chemicals. It is a good
option to use if your home uses radiant heat systems.
