The Best Vinyl Flooring Options for Your Portland Home

If you’re renovating your Portland home, you may have come across vinyl as one of the best options for busy households and wet weather. But what makes it stand out from other materials, and what types are available? Keep reading to find out.

There’s a lot to love about vinyl—especially the modern iterations of it. The floor-covering product is more affordable than real hardwoods, stone, and ceramic, plus it’s durable and easy to clean. With proper maintenance, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can last over 20 years.

One of the main benefits of vinyl flooring for Portland homeowners is that it’s often 100% waterproof. This means it can be installed anywhere in the home, even moisture-prone spaces like mudrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and laundry rooms.

Types of Vinyl

When browsing vinyl flooring options, you’ll see there are a few main types. 

These include:

  • Luxury vinyl tile (LVT)
  • Luxury vinyl plank (LVP)
  • Luxury vinyl sheet (LVS)

Unlike traditional sheet vinyl from decades past, the luxury variety consists of several critical layers. These include a thermoplastic backing, reinforced fiberglass, foam cushioning, and a UV-cured urethane finish, all of which make it waterproof, durable, and comfortable underfoot.
