Posted on December 2, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by

Though laminate and vinyl may seem quite similar, there are actually many differences. If you’re trying to decide between the two for your flooring makeover, here is a breakdown of key differences so you can decide which is best for you.

Material: vinyl is made of plastic whereas laminate is made mostly of wood product.

Moisture resistance: vinyl is almost water proof due to its plastic composition, whereas laminate is not recommended for bathrooms or other areas that experience moisture concentration.

Cost: the cost is actually quite comparable, so this is not a major difference for the two.

Liftetime: vinyl typically lasts longer, especially considering care and location.
