Shaw takes LVT offering to the next level with Floorté

Shaw takes LVT offering to the next level with Floorté


While luxury vinyl tile remains the fastest growing flooring category, it does have its challenges – namely temperature change and moisture. But Shaw has come up with a newly engineered Enhanced Vinyl Plank (EVP) that repels moisture with zero need for acclimation.
Similar to that of a wood plastic composite, Shaw reported that its new line, Floorté, is a different composition of resins that incorporates a new locking system, making the floor completely waterproof.
The LVT category has been booming with new technologies. In 2013, USFloors introduced a WPC plank utilizing a cork backing.
Shaw’s director of hard surface marketing, Natalie Cady, explained that with Floorté’s EVP, an underlayment is not necessary.
“With our rigid Lifeguard Core, you can simply fold, tap and walk away with little to no subfloor preparation necessary. Not only is the plank itself waterproof, but water can sit on the ‘fold n tap’ seams and joints for 48 hours and remain completely unaffected,” she said, noting that the walls and subfloors of the installation are excluded from the waterproof guarantee.
Cady, along with other members of Shaw’s hard surface team, showed FCW an exclusive first-hand example of just how capable Floorté’s planks perform. Submerged in a tank of water for over 10 days, Floorté could be simply wiped dry with a cloth and ready for installation.
Besides introducing a completely waterproof system with Floorté, Shaw also addresses another challenge met with traditional LVT: acclimation. According to Clark Hodgkins, resilient category manager at Shaw, Floorté is able to go from 55 degrees to 85 degrees without growing or shrinking due to changes in temperature.
“Although you can’t beat science, we have enhanced the vinyl with various resins to allow it to hold shape in different temperatures,” Hodgkins said. “Installers can take it out of their van and put it directly onto the ground with zero acclimation. With traditional LVT it could take hours to properly acclimate the product. So while the consumer might not be affected by that factor, this saves a lot of time for the team on the ground installing.”
Focus on color and design
Floorté comes in two different collections, Classico and Premio. Classico comes with a 12mil wearlayer and is introduced with 14 different colors, while Premio has a 20mil wearlayer and comes in 13 different colors. According to Sandi Ownby, Shaw’s hard surface design manager, this many new SKUs allowed Shaw to target a variety of different trends in hardwood.
“We are hitting as many different customer tastes as possible with these initial introductions. All are intentionally selected,” Ownby explained. “For that reason, we have some exotic looking olives, some traditional exotics, grays with muted dark tones, even a visual that looks like a 200-year-old Italian door with watermarks and aging. On our first release to dealers we came out with several dark tones, so we decided to add lighter tones.”
Hodgkins explained that because Floorté is a more rigid product than traditional LVT, it looks and feels more like a real wood floor. “Sometimes when LVT is installed, the realism of the print gets lost on the ground. This product fixes that issue with a bevel that makes it look even more realistic,” he said, adding that the price point of Floorté will be slightly higher than traditional LVT but less than hardwood prices.
And as Shaw continues its quest to have a larger presence in the LVT market, Hodgkins believes Floorté has the potential to be revolutionary for the company and the market alike.
“We feel very good about this product and the affect it will have in the marketplace. It’s something our dealers have been asking for and early reviews have been extremely well received,” he said.

Flooring for Your Kitchen

Flooring for Your Kitchen

Tile, stone, cork, wood or vinyl? Kitchen choices fit all budgets.

Spacious Kitchen with Wood and Tile
Your kitchen floor, besides being practical and durable, is a major design statement as well. The floor you choose affects every other element of your design and with the variety of materials, colors and textures available today, your choices are nearly endless.
  • Stone or tile is an excellent choice for heavy traffic areas. Ceramic tile is durable and available in assorted colors and styles with the option for decorative borders and designs.
  • Limestone is a natural stone that offers an Old World look. It's a porous material that must be sealed upon installation and then twice a year.
  • Cork is a durable, versatile material available in a variety of colors. It is water-resistant and reduces impact noise.
  • Wood is a popular choice for today's kitchens. It feels good underfoot and creates a warm look. Today's prefinished wood floors withstand heavy traffic and water stains. High-pressured plastic laminates are an alternative that provide the same look for less money.
  • Vinyl or resilient flooring offers a variety of styles and colors in either tiles or sheets for those on a budget.Final Touch Flooring Group

October is a Great Time for Flooring

Final Touch Flooring Group

            The holiday decorating season is right around the corner starting with Halloween! If you're going to get your home or business looking great from top to bottom then the floors need to look their best. When it comes to getting ready for the holidays the beginning of fall is the perfect time to start.           
 October is a Great Time for Flooring

Now is the best time to replace your floors for a few reasons. First off, depending on how extensive the project is and the product you use getting the floors replaced may need to be done well in advance of the holidays. Hardwood flooring and tile are two options that can take weeks to be completed if there is a lot of square footage involved. But this far in advance you shouldn't have any problem getting everything ready for the start of the holiday season.

Just as importantly is the fact that October has fairly temperate weather. This makes things easier on the installers, can help reduce energy costs and in the case of wood makes things a little more stable during the acclimation period

Getting Your Floors Looking Their Best for the Holidays

Newly installed floors will be ready to shine just in time for the holidays. But if your not so brand new floors need a little pick me up here are a few tips to get them ready for the festivities.
  • Save the floor cleaning for last - Cleaning top to bottom is the best bet, which means your floors should be the last place you touch up.
  • Get a professional cleaning for carpets - Even carpet that's a few years old can use a deep, professional steam cleaning before the holidays.
  • Wax woods the right way - If you want wood and linoleum floors to look their best a wax will do the trick. Water-based silicon waxes are a safe, easy bet for sealed woods. If you have linoleum or unvarnished hardwood opt for liquid or paste wax. Waxing should be done annually, but don't wait until right before your event. To do it right you'll need to move out all the furniture and apply a few thin coats instead of one thick application.

If you are looking to get an early holiday gift for your home or office call FINAL TOUCH FLOORING GROUP  to schedule a free in home flooring estimate.  You can also come by our showroom to speak with a consultant and get professional help deciding which flooring option will look best all year long.

How to choose the best flooring for your kitchen or bathroom

How to choose the best flooring for your kitchen or bathroom

A winter home improvement projects continue, many people are still looking around their homes and realizing how much last summer had a gloomy impact on their floors. For some homeowners, it will be a great time to start that remodeling project - especially for a bathroom or kitchen. Of course, a big part of any remodeling project is choosing a flooring type.
Making a choice for the proper flooring in a kitchen or a bathroom requires some forethought and planning on the part of the homeowner. There are a variety of flooring choices for consideration. 

Flooring to avoid

First, let’s start with what to avoid. Carpet is not a recommended option due to its ability to absorb and hold moisture. Also, it is one of the hardest flooring types to keep clean in a kitchen or a bathroom. It will show more foot traffic, and cleaning up those every day spills can become frustrating.

Good options

If one is considering a wood floor, it’s good to note that engineered hardwood flooring performs better than laminate flooring. Hardwood flooring is made of a sturdier, more water-resistant plywood base. However, engineered wood flooring is generally more expensive to purchase and to have installed. An alternative for the “wood look” is the latest trend of porcelain tiles, with the look of wood, and the durability of tile, with the option of five-inch planks.
Tile is also a long-term beauty option and is a very durable material. There are several tile options ranging from ceramic, to highly expensive, and rare natural stone materials. The most important factor to keep in mind is that natural stone, such as travertine, requires a stone sealer to help reduce the ability of water/moisture to penetrate.
Porcelain tile does not allow penetration of moisture and porcelain is a material that many tile manufacturers are using to simulate the look and feel of natural stone materials. The cost of porcelain is generally less than natural stone.

Inexpensive flooring

An inexpensive choice for the kitchen is vinyl tile or sheet vinyl flooring. However, even though it is petroleum-based, it is a composite material. Vinyl tile squares have seams that moisture can penetrate. Sheet vinyl is generally seamless, or has a minimum number of seams, and therefore does a better long- term job.

Don’t forget to match

If wood or laminate flooring is being selected, matching or accent colors are suggested to compliment the cabinets. The choices of wood species vary but oak, bamboo, hickory, maple and walnut are among the most popular. A hand-scraped finish could be considered for a high traffic area because it’s more forgiving of wear marks.

Do your research

Finally, it’s important to do your research and make careful considerations before moving forward with a material order or choosing a contractor for installation. If a homeowner would like to get the best price on the flooring for the kitchen remodeling project while still ensuring a quality product, find a qualified, reputable flooring installer in your area.
