What is the difference between laminate flooring and vinyl flooring?
If you confuse vinyl flooring, especially vinyl plank, with laminate flooring, you might have a hard time deciding which to purchase and install. This is not your fault: manufacturers equally promote both as barely distinguishable durable, budget-friendly, do-it-yourself products.
And that is where the similarities end.
At the Core: Vinyl and Laminate Defined
• This Means: Superior resistance to moisture. You could submerge vinyl flooring in water for days, with no ill effect.
• Features: Forget the ugly vinyl tiles of the past. Plank shapes that are long and narrow, mimicking real wood boards (...) and improved embossing techniques, vinyl flooring is gaining in popularity once again.
Materials, thickness, comfort level, and resistance to moisture are different. Base materials are at the core of the differences.
