I’m working on an indoor tortoise enclosure for my red foot and I’ve seen most posts advising to stay away from pine. I was thinking about using stick on vinyl flooring planks to make the enclosure water proof and more attractive. If I do that would that make pine safe to use as it would technically be sealed? I’m having trouble finding cheap wood other than pine so any thoughts would be helpful!

I’d say thay vinyl is not good for your tort either. There is lots of stuff out there about off gasing. Alsonits only waterproof to a point. It’s ok to get it wet then wipe up the water, but it’s not made to stay wet all the time.

I've used the stick on vinyl flooring in my 3 different heated tortoise houses for about 5 years. No issues at all.
