Resilient Flooring: Finding the Green Sweet Spot
What’s the best resilient flooring? Is resilient flooring even sustainable?
by Paula Melton
Choosing flooring may be one of the hardest decisions in the building industry. Performance, design options, budget, installation, maintenance, embodied impacts, and durability all come into play: with all that in mind, there’s no perfect solution. Even after you’ve narrowed it down based on application and decided resilient flooring is best, there are still a dizzying number of options.
This may be part of the reason the industry tends to default to luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and, for healthcare situations, sheet vinyl. Vinyl’s low cost, popular design options, well understood installation, and low maintenance make it an easy choice.
