What are the main differences between Vinyl and Laminate Flooring?
Resistance to Water
Vinyl is 100% synthetic and waterproof, so it can be used anywhere in the home. Laminate flooring is made up of wood by-products and should not be exposed to water.
Vinyl flooring comes in planks or tiles with an overall thickness ranging from 1.5mm for sheet vinyl to 5mm for luxury planks. The overall thickness for laminate flooring planks ranges from 6mm to 12mm.
Therefore, when comparing for comfort laminate is the winner.
Vinyl & Laminate are durable, economical, easy to install and almost incomparable in appearance.
