Video: How do I decide tile vs. vinyl flooring?

Tile vs. vinyl. Learn the pros and cons of both before you decide which to install as your new flooring.

Considering using tile or vinyl for your new floor covering?

The two most common types of tile are ceramic and porcelain, which can be glazed or unglazed. Tile comes in many colors, is durable, low maintenance and is resistant to fire and water.

On the downside, tile can be cold, hard and can be slippery when wet.

Tile can run $1 per square foot on up. Installation can be $2.50 to $5 per square foot.

Vinyl has come a long way. It can replicate the look of tile and is less expensive than its counterpart.
