They are made of a resin-based plastic material (usually PVC) covered by a polyurethane layer that provides great resistance to stains and scratches.

 Do you need a practical and resistant solution for the floor of your house? Give vinyl floors a try: there are many advantages they offer, both in terms of resistance and durability and in terms of decoration. Although in the past vinyl floors did not have a very good reputation for being considered low-end floors, with few features and lower quality, today things have changed radically. Vinyl Flooring are currently coatings to consider, thanks to their many qualities and few drawbacks.

They are made of a resin-based plastic material (usually PVC) covered by a polyurethane layer that provides great resistance to stains and scratches. How thick the final layer or use layer is, the resistance of the floor will depend. Thus, you can opt for vinyl for very intense, intense and moderate use.

For the whole house

One of the most prominent benefits of vinyl siding is that you can install it in every room in the house, including the kitchen and bathroom. In fact, they work like a charm in humid areas since the water, far from deteriorating them, does not affect them at all. There are even perfect vinyl for terraces and gardens.

They make your life more comfortable

But this is not the only quality that this type of flooring has. In addition to their great resistance to abrasion, scratches and stains, vinyl floors promise you COMFORT with capital letters, in every aspect. For starters, they are easy to install as they do not require construction. In addition, they are easy to maintain as they clean effortlessly; just scrub them with water and a suitable cleaning product. And they are also very comfortable to use, as they have a soft and pleasant touch, perfect for walking around the house barefoot, or for children to play on the floor.

With the appearance that you want

In the same way as laminate floors, also great imitators, vinyl floors can take on the appearance of many other different materials, in a kind of almost perfect copy. The veins of marble or wood, the matte texture of polished cement, the colors and patterns of hydraulic tiles, etc. The vinyl put before you a whole world of options that you are going to love. They are available in different formats, from vinyl rolls to tiles or planks. The objective is, without a doubt, to recreate the materials to be emulated with maximum accuracy.

No works or headaches

Vinyl is a perfect material for a renovation and this is due, in large part, to the ease with which it is installed, without having to undergo cumbersome works. In fact, in most cases the old flooring does not have to be removed. There are two methods of installing vinyl floors: adhesive and click system. Both are quite simple to implement, although installing roll vinyl is somewhat more complex due to the large dimensions of the coating to be glued (this format is always installed with adhesive). The tiles or planks are more manageable.

In any of the cases, the floor must be level and not present irregularities, since these would be noticed later. To avoid this inconvenience, in recent years what is known as rigid vinyl (a solid core of vinyl and an additional protection of fiberglass) has been emerging. As it is not flexible or malleable, it is no longer necessary to prepare the floor beforehand, since small defects will not be noticed. In addition, it is a very hard coating, with extreme resistance to shocks and impacts.
