Anyone familiar with Flexitec flooring?


I work for Tri County Floor Covering, a carpet and linoleum retailer near Detroit, MI. We do have other products. Is Flexitec anything like Congoleum DuraCeramic?

No. Are you not familiar with fiberfloor or Earthscapes? Those 2 and Flexitec are the only ones available around here. But I'm sure there are others.

I tried to send you a pm, but it says you are not allowing them. I believe the Congoleum product is Airstep.

That should get your IVC's headquarters order desk. They can direct you to a distributor for your area. We are in Virginia and Abraham Linc out of West VA is the distributor for this area.

Tarkett, Congoleum, and Armstong also make their own versions of this product. Tarkett has been the only one all that close in price from my experience. Armstrong has outrageous pricing on it, plus it's still made over seas at a 13'2" width and cut down to 12' width for US sales. You pay for material you don't even get. Tarkett and Congoleum make theirs state side now at 12' and IVC still makes theirs at 13'2" locally.

And 13'2" makes far more sense with IVC. The fewer seams the better.

I'm having flexitec put down tomorrow and I am so skeptical of using something for the first time.
I take my fridge out often and blow the dust from under it. I am so afraid thid product will roll. What do you think.

Glue it and you won't have a problem. You may find the wheels of the fridge settles into the flooring depending on the thickness of it. it won't be as bad on the thinner styles.

Watch the video.

Then you will know if it is being put down right. I have fixed several jobs that were installed wrong. Just make sure if it's Flexitec that they let the adhesive dry before they lay the vinyl in. Some of the other brands go into wet adhesive.

If you are loose laying you are suppose to put an X of double faced tape under the heavy appliances to keep it from shifting when they are moved.

I will find out next week how it is when I install it myself. I have done great installs on regular vinyl flooring and am looking forward to trying this PVC flooring. It will go in a basement bathroom / laundry room directly on a cement floor. I plan to do a full glue install. My only concern was heat from the dryer. All the dealers said it won't be an issue. I'll find out.
Later...

We have this in our Garage for the past two yrs. Thru heat, cold, and even driving on it with salt from winter and lots of small little stones that they put on the roads with salt. Washes up with a mop and bucket or in the summer water hose and push broom. GREAT Floor!!!

There is a new site that just popped up called flexitecvinyl.com But the site looks like it is under development still but its been changing every week. It was registered and setup last month so its very new and looks like a official website instead of the vinylflooring.org. So far from looking at it the Residential Program is almost complete it is missing the specs for the different products but the image gallery to see the different patterns looks amazing. The videos section under Installation is done too. The video secction is the 30 min dvd that is displayed at some stores but broken down into individual chapters. I want to get vinyl put in my kitchen and saw this at the store it looked good and i looked for flexitecvinyl.com and it brought me their. When i first looked at it the home page just had a image the pictures were just small thumbnails and the videos were as big as a cellphone screen. A few days later i went to vinylflooring.org and it had old collections and pictures where bigger but horrible looking. Being frustrated with it i decided to check out flexitecvinyl.com again and look at the small thumbnails again within one week it had a fantastic presentation of the the product images and the videos are big you can make them full screen and it still looks decent. The only problem with the videos is you have to wait for it to load up all the way before it starts playing. Hopefully they fix that soon. http://www.flexitecvinyl.com/residen...ogram/luna.php but i wouldnt try to use the contact us page yet, it still looks as if they have alot more information to fill in. For my kitchen i think i am going to look around for Craftmark Phoenix 997 . I just hope they get the locations page done soon i would like to find a dealer close to me rather than calling up all the local flooring stores.
