This allows vinyl flooring to capture the look and feel of any natural flooring material with the added benefits only found in vinyl flooring.Vinyl floors come in various wear layers and will dramatically affect the overall performance of your new floor. Having a basic understanding of the 2 most common wear layers will help you choose the right floor for your needs. Urethane- most of your middle to upper end vinyl floors come with a urethane finish. The enhanced urethane finishes protect your floors from scuffing, asphalt sealer tracking, and most spills wipes off easily with a clean rag, or paper towel.PVC-(polyvinyl chloride) this is your basic vinyl floor wear layer, which gives good durability, but lacks the easy maintenance features found in the urethane wear layers. Scuffs and marks may be difficult to remove. Both of these two types of wear layers do a good job of protecting the underlying printed layer from being destroyed by water. The higher end vinyl floors offer thicker wear layers, additional maintenance enhancements, as well as much better styling and design features.
