Flooring has to endure continuous punishment, exposed to just about everything under the sun and while there are numerous materials we can use, they all have their weakness. Hardwood flooring ticks just about every box, yet the cost makes it prohibitive for most people, plus it takes some tender loving care to keep its lustre, stone is nice, although it has than inert coldness and again, is expensive. We’ve had vinyl for many years, which does give you an incredibly durable floor and let’s not forget laminate – a cost effective alternative to timber or stone – but if you would like the ultimate in flooring, look no further that hybrid flooring.
Laminate and Vinyl Combined
These two materials can now be combined to provide a flooring surface that is 100% waterproof – you can soak it in water and it will not swell – add to that the fact that hybrid flooring is easy to clean and can be laid on any substrate. The union of the durability of laminate and the appeal of luxury vinyl creates a durable, scratch resistant surface that does not warp or bend and with stunning timber and stone finishes in just about every shade, you have the perfect low-cost flooring that gives you everything you need and will always remain in tip-top condition.
Hybrid flooring is silent underfoot and has a warm feeling to it, similar to hardwood, yet it does not move regardless of the temperature. There is a thin layer of cork on the underside of the plank, hence the silence and warmth. The extruded core is made from bamboo dust and recycled wood, with added limestone and PVC, giving the very best properties, and the low cost makes it extremely attractive to Australian homeowners.
Installing hybrid flooring demands a professional approach and you are best advised to buy from an established supplier who would specialise in hybrid flooring. You might be wondering how to source such a company, yet Google comes to the rescue yet again by taking you to the market leader in composite flooring, who can quote you for your needs.
A Waterproof Surface
Ideal for kitchens, hybrid flooring is 100% resistant to water and is easy to keep clean, which is why this unique flooring will very soon become the most popular flooring solution. When you factor in the amazing durability and low cost, it really does wipe the floor with any other flooring material and with so many different finishes, timber grain and marble are both possible.
The quality of the timber grain finishes is stunning – in fact, they are high resolution digital images that are laid under the protective membrane, with exquisite marble and granite finishes also on offer. If you are planning to refloor your property or are about to build, you really should look into hybrid flooring, as it offers a multitude of benefits for a very low cost.
