Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide in Columbia, MD

Vinyl Flooring in Columbia, MD


Inexpensive, enduring, and easy to maintain, vinyl flooring is available in an amazing selection of colors, textures, and patterns, with options to complement virtually any décor. At The Vertical Connection Carpet One, we can show you all the latest vinyl flooring trends, with beautiful shades and styles that work with any style and budget for your next flooring project.



Today’s vinyl flooring is tough, with bold and beautiful looks thanks to a photo-realistic image layer that captures the natural textures of hardwood or stone. Made to manage heavy traffic areas, including kitchens, bathrooms, playrooms, and entryways, vinyl flooring is made to manage moisture and spills from children and pets. Some types are even waterproof.





What is Vinyl Flooring?


Vinyl flooring, offered in sheet, tile, and plank forms, is available with your choice of three different wear surfaces: no wax, urethane, and enhanced urethane. At the beginning of this spectrum is no-wax vinyl. Once considered an industry breakthrough, no-wax vinyl now offers minimal scratch and scuff resistance. For those seeking added durability, consider a urethane surface. Enhanced urethane boasts the toughest resistance, repelling heel marks, dirt, and most household chemicals. Vinyl tile and vinyl plank are the most popular types of vinyl flooring


Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?


The short answer to this question is yes – and no. All types of vinyl flooring offer moisture resistance. However, not all vinyl is equal, and for those seeking a truly waterproof floor, here’s where it pays to read the fine print. Among the vinyl flooring types considered 100% waterproof are rigid core and WPC: both extremely popular in the kitchen and bath, as well as within the hospitality sector. 


There are countless reasons to consider waterproof vinyl flooring. Like all vinyl products, the waterproof versions capture all your favorite hardwood, stone, and traditional tile designs. With hundreds of options in plank and tile, waterproof vinyl flooring can manage the toughest pet stains, as well as daily life with your toddler.


Waterproof vinyl flooring attains its superpowers via a clear, protective topcoat, as well as a watertight core. It’s easy to install and even more comfortable to maintain. Clean-ups are a breeze: simply sweep your floor now and then, with a light mopping all that’s needed for larger messes.
