Just like engineered wood, the quality of vinyl products can vary dramatically. We have done our research and have found the best product line for our clients.
Shaw Floorte Pro
Like many vinyl options, Shaw Floorte Pro is 100% waterproof. Unlike others, the attached Soft Silentce Accoustical pad is antimicrobial, a feature cork underlayments cannot claim.
One of the most significant features of the Floorte Pro is the limestone core. Unlike PVC core products, the Floorte Pro can endure heavy traffic up to 2000 PSI. Translation: the product is less likely to indent. Bring on the active family!
Installing in a sunny spot? No problem for Floorte Pro! This vinyl can withstand direct sunlight up to 180 degrees with no issues of expansion and contraction.
20 mil and 12 mil options are available in wood and stone patterns. The wood patterns are available for both glue-down and click-together applications; stone patterns are only available in click-together. Tread overlays are also available in the wood patterns.
