Vinyl Flooring

  • Very durable
  • Waterproof
  • Has to be cleaned using wet mops and mild (non-abrasive) cleaners
  • Wax cannot be used to restore shine
  • Pet-friendly
  • Joe Walker’s Flooring have a variety of different styles and colours of vinyl to browse.

Laminate Flooring

  • Very durable however is prone to scratching over time.
  • It’s not waterproof
  • Should be cleaned with laminate specific products, not a wet mop. Acetone can be used if a stain is difficult to remove.
  • Shine can be rejuvenated using material-specific products. Also, if required chips and scratches can be repaired.
  • Laminate is pet-friendly
  • Similarly to vinyl, laminate is available in a range of different styles and colours, so is very versatile and can suit any living space.
  • Though laminate can fade with time it’s less prone to fading than vinyl.
