Many factors go into flooring choices: member needs and preferences, the costs of the materials and installation, the level of maintenance required and the estimated lifetime of the materials.
The environmental impact of our decisions is another important factor for many. Here we have put together a chart to help members navigate some of those various factors — including how green different flooring options are.
The material cost comparison excludes labour and consists of the product and the underlay. It is a few years old. The maintenance cost is based on the expected life of the material. The environmental impact is based on a number of studies that assess environmental attributes of each flooring product. For more information see 2019’s “Comparison of Environmental Impacts of Flooring Alternatives” by primary author Jim L. Bowyer.
There are many choices for flooring, but vinyl plank is especially popular with housing co-ops.
Vinyl plank can resemble the texture and feel of stone, wood, and even clay tiles and with today’s manufacturing technology it can look like real hardwood floors, but feels soft. Cleaning vinyl plank floors is as simple as a slight wipe down with a mop. It’s easy to maintain as you can either sweep or vacuum your floors.
Vinyl planks are produced in a way that makes them water, stain, scratch and scuff resistant, which makes for a very durable floor that takes a lot of time to wear out. If a plank does get damaged, you can easily change it with a new piece. Co-ops love vinyl plank for the simple reason that it’s the most durable flooring product on the market.
