  • 100% Water resistant:

One of the biggest advantages of Vinyl Flooring that customers look for in commercial floors is water resistance. In areas where water spillage is common or wetness guaranteed vinyl flooring is highly advised.

  • Ease of maintenance:

Cons:

Vinyl flooring is one of the softer types of commercial flooring.  Softer than woods and tiles, vinyl can easily be punctured by very sharp objects.

  • Discoloration/fading

This is more common with plank flooring as the top layer of vinyl is not UV resistant meaning areas that are exposed to significant  sunlight are prone to fading.

  • Difficult to recycle
