Vinyl plank flooring vs concrete overlay

Posted by bluedenim (My Page) on

We are doing the floors in our condo and debating between these two

The vinyl plan looks like wood and the concrete overlay will look more like stone or we could just polish it as we have concrete floors already

The price difference is 50 percent more for the concrete

Not sure which way to go

RE: Vinyl plank flooring vs concrete overlay

I put vinyl plank over my concrete floors in two rooms. The one where adhesive is rolled out and the planks laid has glue that seeps out in high traffic areas-specifically where a chair rolls over it at a desk. The plank that is a "floating" application and stick to each other is fine except where by heavy buffet is sitting. One section is buckling because of the weight of the legs (very small footprint).

My dogs slip on it, so we ended up tiling.

I'd consider heavily cushioned vinyl over concrete to be softer under foot...look at flexitech or equivalent.

RE: Vinyl plank flooring vs concrete overlay

Thanks this is helpful. We are looking at a vinyl plank flooring that actually clicks together much like a laminate would.


RE: Vinyl plank flooring vs concrete overlay

I'm looking at the click together vinyl for our basement. I've read a lot of good things about vinyl, I have high hopes. I'd like to do it soon as I've picked out the product, but I've got a lot going on in the next month or so.
