Has anyone had experience with vinyl planks and/or hybrid flooring? Which one is best or are they both very similar when down?
We have Karndean Vinyl Planks which we’re laid 2 years ago.
Hi Debbie, are you happy with them?
vinyl planks over tiles with under floor heating
Which flooring? Laimate, vinyl or a hybrid
what vinyl plank flooring? help please!
Has anyone tried Timber Trends Vinyl plank flooring?
I have found they get blotchy marks on them, we have lemon spotted gum Karndean. We built our home two years ago. They don’t look that bad other people don’t notice them but I seem to see them.
Oh dear, that’s doesn’t sound good. What kind of marks are they Permanent stain marks or Water marks from cleaning products or what? Have you raised it with supplier and if so, did they have any explanation? I’m sure that would be a warranty issue??
I have discussed with my supplier but they didnt do anything.
Sorry to hear that, thanks for your reply, do you know what the blotches are?
We had a bad experience with vinyl planks. They have to be laid on an absolutely perfectly flat surface or otherwise after a year or two as they settle, any tiny little imperfection under them starts to show through. We ended up ripping ours out after 4 years and replacing with laminate flooring planks which we love.
Thanks so much, that is good information to know. We are building from scratch so hopefully the slab will be flat with no imperfections but I take your advice onboard.We have been told hybrid planks are an improvement on straight vinyl planks but it’s hard to tell if that is just a sales pitch??
If it is flexible it will settle into any sweep line in the concrete floor. A good quality underlay helps but time will settle that too. Make sure floor is smooth to guarantee before laying
