What Is Synthetic Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2021

Synthetic flooring combines naturally occurring materials with man made ones to make sheets, planks, and tiles. Linoleum, vinyl, laminate, plastic, foam and rubber flooring products are all synthetic.

Synthetic flooring is often versatile and durable, as well as very low maintenance. . .especially when compared to hardwood. They are also often cost effective.
