Vinyl steps is commonly found in residential settings around the house or pool. Vinyl is made from a variety of plastics (vinyl resins). This is the most popular type of flooring used in the US. It is important to note that different types of vinyl flooring require different levels of maintenance. Vinyl is most commonly found in residential kitchens, bathroom facilities, retail and commercial establishments. High quality vinyl is one of the most durable types of flooring available and can hold up against denting from heavy objects extremely well. Vinyl is a great option for stairs because it is low maintenance and a very durable flooring option. Stairs are not a fun place to clean/vacuum so this durability is very important. Also since stairs are a dangerous place to slip and fall it is very important to have high traction on these situations. If your steps are being submerged underwater, we suggested our non slip spray since it is chemical resistant to salts and chlorines.
