Resilient Tile Flooring


Use this CSI 3 part SimpleSpecs™ specification template to specify Resilient Tile Flooring.


Resilient flooring is flexible and withstands the demands of heavy foot traffic. Resilient flooring comes in many forms, including vinyl composition, vinyl plank, rubber, cork, linoleum, and luxury vinyl tiles.


Ideal for commercial spaces like schools, hospitals, retail stores, and gyms. It’s easy to clean by scrubbing with a mop and disinfectant or mopping with water.


Many types of flooring are available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Consult with a reputable flooring manufacturer to determine the best product for each project.


Resilient flooring is also popular in residential homes, especially if you have children or pets who like to run around. Resilient floors are also great for areas with a lot of foot traffic, such as entryways and hallways.

It’s often used in combination with carpet to distribute the weight evenly across the entire surface area of the floor.

The SimpleSpecs™ master specs concept
Adding More Words Does Not Make Specifications More Enforceable.    
Design professionals are accustomed to seeing lengthy project specifications, so why is SimpleSpecs™ so short?
Specifications have grown evermore wordy over the years for several reasons:
  1. The mistaken belief that specifications must be lengthy and legal-sounding to be enforceable.  In fact, quite the opposite is true.  Having shorter, easily understood specifications makes us less likely to have problems in the field.
  2. A belief that having lots of words protects us from a Contactor making mistakes.  There is no way to include enough statements to protect yourself from a bad contractor, regardless of the length of your specification.
  3. Our desire to be in control of the project by specifying means and methods instead of including simple, enforceable statements.
Easier to Edit

SimpleSpecs™ is written as a series of Microsoft word files that include statements that affect construction costs or overall quality and are far simpler to edit than other master specification systems.


Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section is non-proprietary and includes three manufacturers that meet the specified reference standards, descriptive, or performance-based requirements. They are written to allow any listed manufacturers to provide the specified products.

Hidden Guide Text

Each SimpleSpecs™ specification section includes hidden text to inform and guide users in editing the specifications to suit project conditions.

Streamlined Editing

SimpleSpecs™ sections are edited using pre-defined options that are contained in [brackets] or by selecting optional text separated by "OR" statements. Paragraph and page numbering are included as automatic codes, eliminating the need to renumber when revisions are made manually.  Global changes to headers, footer, terms, font colors and phrases are easily updated using a third-party search and replace software, available through ZeroDocs.com.
