We are getting Coretec Plus E LVP in "Manila Oak" (a very light color that is a close match for our natural maple hardwood on the 1st floor) installed throughout our 2nd floor and on our stairs from 1st to 2nd later this month. The sales guy has given us a couple of options for the stair noses. Coretec makes stair noses that are an exact match, which are of course vinyl. Versatrim makes aluminum stair noses in a light maple color (I forget the name) that kind of almost match. I can be a little weird about things not matching correctly, but on the other hand, the sales guy makes it sound like the vinyl ones aren't a good choice for durability. I could get over the not matching thing if it will save us from having expensive problems with the stairs. So...are the Versatrim aluminum ones really that much better of a choice, or are the Coretec ones durable as well? FYI, we are two 50+ yo adults, no kids, plenty of pets, and we have been known to sort of bump heavy things that we can't lift properly up or down the stairs occasionally, but not too often. Thanks much for any input you can provide!
