Generally, resilient flooring includes:
All other types of flooring (carpeting, ceramic, porcelain tile, engineered wood flooring, laminate flooring, solid wood flooring, and natural stone) are NOT considered resilient. They are in their own categories of hard or soft.
There are several benefits to this type of flooring for residential use. Knowing the benefits of this type of flooring can help you as the retailer or contractor educate your clients on the best choice for them.
In addition to all of these benefits, resilient flooring doesn’t necessarily require polishing and spray buffing thanks to the latest advances in product finishes and coatings.
While residential resilient flooring certainly has its advantages, it does have a couple of drawbacks. First, indentations can occur at pressure points that can leave a permanent mark, such as with appliances or table legs. Second, it’s hard to find consistency in value and quality in the resilient flooring industry. There’s a wide range of products here, from premium luxury vinyl brands to sub-par, cheap vinyl tiles that don’t last. The key is to do your research and ask your local flooring professional for assistance in choosing the right products for your clients and customers.
