Recommended Durable Flooring Products
Many species of hardwood flooring are designed to be extremely durable, especially for high-traffic homes. Look for protective coatings such as Aluminum Oxide and extended Wear Warranties for the best bet.
Laminate flooring works well in higher traffic areas of your home. It can resist abrasions, stains and fading. It’s also equipped with a multi-layer finish to add enhanced surface protection.
Both ceramic and porcelain tile flooring are extremely tough. From natural stone to wood looks, authentic tile floors are hard to beat in the durability department.
Vinyl tile provides the beautiful look of stone or porcelain tile, and also includes scratch, moisture, mildew, and tear resistance. It’s highly durable and easy to clean, even in rooms with extra foot traffic!
Vinyl plank is also highly durable, looks and feels like real wood, and is friendlier to budgets than solid hardwood or tile. It’s easy to install in any room, even the rooms you frequent the most.
