At Carpet Closeouts in Phoenix, AZ, we’re aware that every type of flooring comes with its own limitations. Carpet can be easily soiled or affected by water damage, especially if you live with careless kids or pets. Tile solves this problem, but gets very cold in the wintertime. Hardwood floors must be meticulously protected and cared for to maintain their full luster. Many clients are rediscovering the benefits of vinyl, the affordable flooring solution that has proven to be durable, comfortable, and easily maintained.
Shaw’s two lines of resilient vinyl flooring show that the material has come a long way since its heyday in the 1950’s.
The Array Collection is the line that is meant to most replicate the appearance and texture of other floors. It comes in planks of “wood” as well as in tiles. These pieces lock together easily with Shaw, StaTite joint technology that makes installation painless and easy. Array flooring is put right on the subfloor without the need for messy adhesive. The floor is strengthened by the StaTite interlocking rather than by sticking to the subfloor.
The DuraTruTM line is a more traditional vinyl option, coming in sheets that are meant to visually replicate wood, tile, and stone. The sheets are backed with fiberglass cushion that makes the floors more comfortable and quiet, perfect for rooms with frequent scampering children or stomping teenagers. It is also more resistant to damage, and unlike cheaper, low-quality sheeting, it won’t contract, expand, crack or curl.
Both types of vinyl resilient flooring are easy to install. Plus, you’ll be thanking yourself when all you need to do to clean and preserve the floors is perform a quick sweep and mop. You won’t freak out over a spill that can simply be wiped from the surface, and you won’t experience problems with mildew or moisture. Most of all, you’ll be thrilled when you come across the color and style that goes perfectly with that special room in your home.
