What is Vinyl Flooring?

Vinyl flooring is a modern, engineered type of material that removes deficiencies of natural wood, while still being able to look like the real thing.

The backing layer is the closest to the floor, it's followed by the core layer made out of high-density solid vinyl made to resist water and last. The printed vinyl later comes next and carries the design, while the last, wear layer, protects the floor.
