I personally prefer the feel of Laminate especially a 12mm thick one but vinyl will be much more durable in a rental.

You can get water proof vinyl while the best Laminate is only water resistant for about 8 hours on the surface. Laminate is a bad idea in the kitchen or washroom

Laminate in the bedrooms, vinyl in the kitchen and ceramic in the washrooms.

Would 12 mm laminate in bedrooms and family / living rooms in rental units will be a good idea or you guys think vinyl plank will be a better solution?

I had a bad experience with 4 mm click vinyl planks and i see after a year or so these joints breaks... Anyone experienced same?

I use porcelain tile throughout.

Maybe a bit more costly for most rental unit?

Breaking joints are typically a sign of issues with the subfloor.

But for some reason i find 12 mm extremely strong and durable once installed vs 4 mm vinyle planks seems very weak.

Not sure why though.
