VINYL PLANK VS. CARPET: A SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON

COST & INSTALLATION 

Vinyl: More expensive at install, but vinyl plank is much less expense over the lifetime of the floor     

Carpet: Ranges from budget – Carpet is very expensive at install and much more expensive over the lifetime of the floor

RESALE VALUE 

Vinyl: Hard-surface flooring adds value and attracts more buyers 

Carpet: Carpet requires a quick face-lift before a sale to bring any value

VERSATILITY     

Vinyl: Vinyl is well suited to high-moisture rooms like bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens             

Carpet: Carpet is not suitable for high-moisture areas, like bathrooms, laundries, and kitchens

APPEARANCE   

Vinyl: Wood-Look floors are on-trend and more luxurious looking

Carpet: Carpet may be a good option but will never look as good as the first day it is installed.

CLEANLINESS & CARE   

Vinyl: Dirt cannot hide on vinyl plank flooring and vinyl plank is easy to clean     

Carpet: Dirt and bacteria hides in carpet. Carpet is hard, and expensive, to clean.

HYPOALLERGENIC CHOICES

Vinyl: Vinyl is anti-microbial and allows regular and quick cleaning             

Carpet: Carpet will develop allergy-causing microbial load and requires regular deep cleaning

PET-FRIENDLY FLOORS 

Vinyl: Vinyl is pet friendly because it is easier to clean spills, is waterproof, and scratch-resistant against pet nails     

Carpet: Carpet may be soft for pets but will become soiled with pet waste and muddy paws

INSULATION & NOISE REDUCTION      

Vinyl: Vinyl Plank has an underlayment layer reduces noise & insulates            

Carpet: Many types of carpet are soft and, therefore, quiet

SUSTAINABILITY            

Vinyl: Lifetime vinyl flooring is environmentally friendly because it reduces landfill volume

Carpet: Replacing carpet every 5-7 years causes petroleum-based landfill volume which is NOT environmentally friendly

COMFORT         

Vinyl: Vinyl is a hard surface material, not as comfortable to lie down on       

Carpet: Most carpet is a soft material; more comfortable to lie down on

SAFETY

Vinyl: The underlayment layer of plank flooring cushions floor for some comfort           

Carpet: Many types of carpet are soft and may have cushioning pad beneath

DURABILITY      

Vinyl: Refloor vinyl plank flooring is guaranteed for life and never has to be replaced     

Carpet: Spills on carpet can never be completely removed and therefore it needs to be replaced frequently
