Waterproof Luxury Vinyl
Waterproof luxury vinyl offers many benefits to your home or business. Not only does it come in wood, tile, and stone looks, but it is also 100% waterproof. Thanks to its multiple layers including a durable wear layer and rigid core, luxury vinyl can withstand moisture, heavy foot traffic, scratches, and spills. Its top wear layer is waterproof along with the backing layer also protecting the underside of your floors from moisture. Luxury vinyl will hold up against whatever life throws at it.
There are two main types of luxury vinyl floor - floating (lock and click) or glue down. The floating luxury vinyl has a locking mechanism along the edges of the planks that allow them to click together. All products of this type of flooring have some sort of attached pad on the plank itself, so pad underlayment is not needed for installation. An advantage of the floating floor is that is can most likely be installed directly over existing hard surfaces. Glue down luxury vinyl is a more flexible plank that is adhered directly to concrete or subfloor. The flexibility of this plank makes this type of floor ideal for installing over unlevel subfloor.

There are many reasons to love hardwood floors. Natural colors, beautiful grain, and perfectly imperfect marks that speak to the character and uniqueness of each board, just to name a few. While hardwood is not fully waterproof, it has some water resistant properties. There are two types of hardwood:
Solid wood is milled from a single 3/4”-thick piece of hardwood. Because of its thickness, a solid hardwood floor can be sanded and refinished over several generations of use. Solid wood flooring expands and contracts with changes in your home’s relative humidity. Normally, installers compensate for this movement by leaving an expansion gap between the floor and the wall. Base molding or quarter-round is traditionally used to hide the extra space. Solid wood can only be installed on wood subfloor.
Engineered wood is produced with three to five layers of hardwood. Each layer is stacked in a cross-grain configuration and bonded together under heat and pressure. As a result, engineered wood flooring is less likely to be affected by changes in humidity and can be installed at all levels of the home.
Tile and Stone
For floor décor that’s creative, practical, and charming, our tile is unbeatable. Amazing colors, shapes, textures, and sizes give you options that make a tile floor so stylish. And when you add extra pizzazz with glass trim, hand-painted accents, or colored grout, you take style to new levels.
One of the best things about tile is the ability to install it in special patterns that add interest to your floor. These patterns are easy to create and offer endless variety—another plus. Try alternating colors for a dramatic, two-toned effect. Mix sizes and shapes; choose between repeated or random patterns. No matter how you lay tile, it’s sure to make a statement.
With a long history as one of the most durable flooring materials available, tile is also a great choice for rooms that see a lot of wear or moisture. It resists stains and scratches and is easy to clean. The result is a floor that’s not only beautiful, but practical as well.
Both chic and classic, floors of tile or stone make a statement. They’re elegant. On-trend. Some even have recycled content. And tile is not just for the kitchen or bath—our styles captivate in any room of the house. You can even put tile in the bedroom, evoking the dreamy feeling of a Roman villa. In any space, you’ll love the timeless look of tile or stone.
Today’s laminate looks so realistic, you’ll find yourself asking, “Is it laminate … or is it hardwood?” It’s laminate, all right—the stylish result of continuing breakthroughs in modern technology and manufacturing methods. Traditional laminate is built very similar to luxury vinyl flooring. It has the top wear layer that protects the flooring from spills and scratches. The center of the laminate plank is a wood and plastic mix. Traditional laminate is not 100% waterproof however. It is water resistant. Traditional laminate also requires a pad as an underlayment to the planks. Like luxury vinyl flooring, it is also a floating floor, meaning it has grooves that lock and click together. Various shades and finishes allow you to choose the wood look down to the species, and now laminates are mimicking hardwood even more. Some laminates offer beveled, distressed, and highly textured options—giving your laminate floor not only the look of hardwood, but the feel of it, too. Consider laminate for a distinctive look that’s beautifully affordable … and affordably beautiful.

Sheet vinyl is a tried and true flooring. This product comes in rolls that are laid out and glued down to subfloor. Sheet vinyl comes in wood, tile, stone, or fun patterned looks that add sophistication to any room. This type of floor is moisture resistant, impervious to most stains, and easy to clean. Vinyl flooring doesn’t need to be waxed—its top layer is made to stay shiny. Heavy traffic is no problem, because these floors not only handle lots of activity, they’re actually resistant to scratches. It’s flexible and comfortable underfoot, and there’s less breakage when items are dropped. The type of flooring is typically favored over hardwood or tile because it is considerable cheaper.
