By Kyle Schurman Created: March, 2021 - Modified: August, 2023

Outdoor vinyl flooring might not be the first choice people think of when preparing for an exterior flooring project. However, when used in the proper situation, it has quite a few benefits, including its durability, waterproof design, minimal maintenance requirements, and ease of installation. Some of the best options for outdoor vinyl products include:

  • LonEco Topseal Vinyl Rolls
  • LonDeck Commercial Vinyl Rolls
  • LonDeck Sierra Rolls
  • Outdoor Field Wall Padding for Chain Link Fences

When installed, outdoor vinyl flooring will be stain and scratch resistant, and it will not allow the formation of mold or mildew, even when used in a frequently wet location, such as on a boat or in a location that receives significant rainfall. Vinyl will be resistant to insect damage too, unlike some forms of wood.

When seeking a type of exterior vinyl flooring, it’s important to think about the planned use case. The model of flooring selected will need to match the expected environmental conditions.
