Here are a few things to think about when you're comparing flooring materials:

1. What is the function of the remodeled space?
2. Who is using the area?
3. How much foot traffic?

The Wood Floor Company is a flooring store in San Jose, CA, in business since 1999. Visit our store, and our experienced team can help you determine the best floor covering for your home. Here is some more information to get you started in the decision-making process. 

Sheet vinyl

Sheet vinyl is a budget-friendly flooring material that is available in rolls. Since sheets are cut to size for each project, only one to three are needed to cover the subfloor. With no or few seams, water and spills stay on the surface to easily remove. 

Luxury vinyl

Sheet vinyl is usually glued down, but luxury vinyl planks and tiles often float above the subfloor. This good material is available in waterproof, pet-friendly brands that have a lifespan of up to thirty years. The most popular brands imitate wood, stone, and ceramic flooring.


Laminate planks and tiles also mimic natural flooring materials. This multi-layer floor covering has a fiberboard core, so it's always warm underfoot. In addition, standard laminate resists water while waterproof laminate repels water, usually for one day.


Anti-microbial and hypoallergenic cork is naturally resistant to mold and mildew. It's a 'green' floor covering that is sealed to protect the surface from damage. In addition to providing a comfortable cushion underfoot, cork is an excellent thermal and acoustic insulator.
