Duracermic flooring


We are considering using the Duracermic flooring for our kitchen. Does anyone have this type flooring and what is your opinion. There are a few posting about the flooring, but they are fairly old. Would like to hear more current opinions.

Yup a lot of different opinions...
Go to different boards too. Like John Bridge, the floorPro etc and get an idea for and against.

I've sold DuraStone for years and recently some Duraceramic. It's a good looking product but we have had some issues with it, though not many. It carries a hefty warranty as well and from what I've seen they do honor that warranty quite well. Personally, I just don't like the way it's made. I'd rather have a good luxury/solid vinyl tile myself. You'll get a better price than Duraceramic and have a product rated for commercial traffic.

I would agree with that assessment, poppa, although I haven't installed any. Bud Cline has, I think, so ask him (PM or something).

I ain't sayin' nothin'...
Every damned time I tell the truth from my personal experiences about that product someone here flames me.

Do a search - there are plenty of recent fresh posts about the ups and downs of that product all over the Internet.

"I ain't sayin' nothin'..." Bud Cline


'Thought you'd say that, Bud, in reference to that crazy retailer on another board! LOL Oh well...hoped that wouldn't prevent you. Volume of info, yes, pot-shots? No way.

But kidding aside, if there's one guy I'd hope the OP would ask it's you Bud. Maybe they still will.

"The whole truth M'am - nothing but the truth...~"

Bud, I would like to know your opinion on the product. We won't "fuss" at you. It is a lot of money for the flooring and the only local person the store gave as a reference has only had it installed 6 mons. We really love the look of tile but hate that it is so cold and the grout is hard to keep clean.

All tile vinyl, stone, ceramic, can be chilly if you don't take steps to warm it.
All grouts can be hard to keep clean, just depends on your use and lifestyle.

Those are complaints I haven't seen too much of.

For the same money you can have real ceramic tile.

Take a look at the pattern design variations available in any particular color. If you can live with the frequent pattern repeats that's your choice also.

Now do a search and look at the complaints about wear-surface pealing/delaminating, nicks and scratches and furniture leg scuffs, cracked grout.
