Low maintenance, high design: resilient luxury flooring

Published: April 19, 2016

When a customer visits our Indianapolis flooring store wanting a hardwood floor for their kitchen or basement, we are now able to show them a flooring option that meets their desire for the beautiful look of wood but in a floor that is strong, durable, flexible and waterproof. It might just be the perfect floor for every level and room of your house.

Beautiful wood-like flooring - no one would ever believe it's a type of vinyl.

Resilient flooring – also known as luxury vinyl tiles

Kermans is proud to offer Shaw’s impressive Floorte line of flooring. “You can get the wood look without the high-maintenance, a product that hides imperfections in subfloors, and an easy click system,” says Natalie Cady, Shaw’s director of hard surface marketing.  The fact that it’s waterproof is just icing on the cake.”

Resilient luxury vinyl planks look and feel like wood.

Using high-definition printing for the top layer, this new type of flooring looks and even feels like genuine tile or hardwood floors. We’re finding it an excellent alternative to hardwood flooring for many of our customers who want hardwood flooring in a room that isn’t ideal.

Hardwood floors need an even subfloor and aren’t the best options for rooms where water or humidity damage is present. Floorte resilient luxury flooring can be installed practically anywhere and its locking system installation makes it easy to install and waterproof. Floorte’s waterproof qualities make it ideal for high-moisture areas like basements, bathrooms, and mudrooms.

“We’ve been amazed at Floorte’s waterproof characteristics even after weeks and weeks of testing in the water,” says Drew Hash, Shaw’s director of hard surfaces.
