Which vinyl flooring is best for a concrete surface to withstand water damage?
I would like to use vinyl flooring in my new Net Zero house in all areas except wash rooms. Any particular brand as lots of choices are out there which one to select? OR Which one to avoid?
We would not know which is the best vinyl flooring since we don't like any of it, so instead we would first point you to some alternatives, namely Marmoleum as a sustainable and healhty alternative to vinyl flooring.
Here would be our reasons for why not to install vinyl in a home, and here is our page on how to find the best flooring for a healthy home if the marmoleum isn't doing it for you. We also laid cork flooring on a concrete floor and we are quite happy with it, its great looking, non-toxic and at about 3/16s it offers a softer and more comfortable surface than concrete, it does not impact the delivery of heat from the radiant floor, and in summer months makes the unheated floor a little more comfortable.
Those are a few options from a gang that isn't fond of vinyl, so I guess the short answer on which ones we would avoid would be - all of them :)
