Fade-Resistant Vinyl Floors are Built to Stand up to the Sun's Harmful UV Rays

Vinyl floors from Empire Today® are often chosen for their combination of durability and affordability. While they are usually less expensive than tile, wood, and laminate options, vinyl flooring products can still be built to last just as long as those other materials. Part of this resilience means standing up to not just physical wear, but also intangible sources of damage, like the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Long-term exposure to the sun can fade the finish of your floors, just like it would fade your favorite baseball cap or the exterior paint on your home. Fade-resistant vinyl flooring is built with a special surface coating that is engineered to withstand prolonged exposure to UV rays.

Many Empire® customers choose vinyl floors for rooms that see lots of activity, like the kitchen or den. The rooms that people spend lots of time in also tend to have large windows that let in lots of sunlight. Over the course of a vinyl floor's lifetime, the sun exposure can really add up, dulling the hue of your floors. Fade-resistant vinyl floors help ensure that the areas exposed to the sun will continue looking great over the long haul. And it's an especially important consideration in rooms where direct sunlight only hits part of the room, which would cause uneven fade patterns in unprotected flooring products.
