Luxury vinyl tile has become a popular flooring option because it combines the natural beauty of stone and slate with extra comfort and durability. It is suitable for virtually every residential setting, and there are even commercial options strong enough for heavy foot traffic and other impacts. FDW Carpet One in Crystal Lake, IL carries Armstrong vinyl tile in our showroom. Armstrong vinyl tile, like all Armstrong flooring options, is one of the best-performing in the industry.
Armstrong vinyl tile is made to replicate the natural looks such of ceramic, stone, or slate. These looks are all truly authentic, so it’s often difficult to determine whether or not one of these vinyl tiles is the real thing! But, the vinyl tiles are certainly more durable and more comfortable than their natural counterparts, largely because of the flexible construction. Armstrong vinyl tiles resist virtually all stains and moisture, and they also can handle heavy foot traffic.
When it comes to installation, Armstrong vinyl tile has an upper hand over real ceramic and stone tiles. Armstrong offers certain DIY installations that are quick and easy, but they do remain long-lasting. One of these DIY installations is the floating method, in which the vinyl tiles are attached together to “float” over the subfloor without any adhesive. For added looks, Armstrong vinyl tile can even be installed with grout that is specially-made for vinyl. Grouting can lead to a more authentic look, but we do recommend relying on a professional installer.
