Dura Ceramic Flooring
 
We are looking into putting new flooring in our kitchen and laundry room. We saw the new Dura ceramic congoleum at a Home Show and really thought it looked good. My husband is very skeptical. I liked it because it was less messy to install, warmer, quieter and would not add a lot of height to the floor. What can anyone tell me about this product?

Thanks.

The Dura Ceramic appears to be a resilaint/vinyle floor. This type of flooring is good for many applications. I personally use another ceramic look alike in my kitchen last time. I used a laminate product. I am happy with mine. No, it is not true ceramic but I have the look I was going for. I would believe this to be the case with the Dura Ceramic. It most likely wont be a 20 year floor or anything. It will not hold up the same as a true ceramic. But it should have a good life and I would assume the cost would be cheaper and much quicker and easier to install. So, It should perform well and install well from what I have read. If you truly like the look and realizing styles change anyway and willing to put new floor in when it shows wear. Go for it. You won't have cracked and lifting tiles that can occur with the ceramic or quarry tiles.:eek:
I understand why he is skeptical.:( I understand your "...less messy to install, warmer, quieter and would not add a lot of height to the floor";) I hope I helped. Maybe another forum user will be able to add more. Hopefully someone has used the product and can give there testimonial. :)

Home decoration is not only about expensive and ornate furniture or about having crystal showpieces strewn around the place. It extends to basics like getting the fixtures right, the painting job well done and an attractive flooring that feels warm to the feet. And when it comes to the flooring aspect, it seems that there?s no looking beyond Dura Ceramic tiles, going by the glowing Dura Ceramic tile reviews.
