We are completely remodeling our kitchen, our contractor highly recommends a vinyl woodlike flooring, that comes in planks like a laminate, but it is vinyl. Goes down with glue, he likes it better than the laminate.
Any opinions?????

Hello Coaches Wife..
Yes, Vinyl Wood flooring is probablly one of the most underrated products available..I'd reccomend it highly..I install a product by Karndean check it out.. it's pretty amazing stuff..

It's easy to install (but have a contractor do it anyway) and it goes in fast.. it's cheaper than installing a hardwood floor, and is easily repaired if damaged. Each board goes in individually, so, if it gets damaged all you have to do is heat it a little with a torch and pull out the damaged board and drop in a new one or whateve was damaged.. it's probab;;y the best looking product available also..

good luck

i think both laminates and solid vinyl foors are good,there are many different types.what brand does your contractor recommend? compare costs with other brands,also ask if you can visit another job where he has installed that product.goodluck

I think vinyl is good if you want the floor to look nice but not cost a ton. We have wood flooring in our kitchen which I love. It does cost a little more to install it though. The flooring is all up to you and what your budget can handle. I would research your options instead of just doing what your builder suggests.
