Do not buy this product and do not be taken in by Congoleum's so-called lifetime warranty. We are two adults who wear slippers in the house. No pets. No children. After less than a year, there are spots on our Duraceramic kitchen floor where the surface has come off. I bought this product because of Congoleum's lifetime "will not wear out" warranty, but Congoleum says the damage to my floor is not covered by the warranty. In fact, they suggested that we had caused the damage by dropping or dragging heavy objects across it. All we have done is walk on it for less than a year.
Yea, instead of pasting crap about Duraceramic which has never been a problem for me since the beginning, perhaps you should get another inspector.
I have to tell people their lam damage is because of moisture and quite often they say "I never spill anything on it!"
Regardless - it's water damage. It's obvious.
I would assume the duraceramic inspector thought your damage was obvious too.
If you think otherwise....prove them wrong with your own inspector.
