When beginning the process of redoing your floors, many homeowners face the difficult decision of choosing between vinyl or ceramic tile flooring. We decided to break these two down for you to help you decide which option is best for you. 

Vinyl: 
  • More budget friendly option
  • No waiting for the floor to cure or dry
  • Easier and faster to install

Tile:  
  • More durable and last much longer than vinyl
  • Generally looks better than vinyl
  • Greater variety of sizes
  • Well-maintained ceramic tile has more prestige and greater real estate value

Both are available in a wide range of colors, sizes and styles. It is also  worth mentioning that vinyl flooring contains many toxic chemicals. While these are stable in vinyl's manufactured form, these chemicals do not safely break down in landfills, and there is the potential for releasing toxic gases if the materials are burned. Environmentally conscious homeowners are rightly concerned about the use of vinyl flooring. Ceramic tile is a wholly natural product that has nothing toxic in its components. Old ceramic tile creates no contamination when it finds its way into landfills.
