Feedback on Dura Plank vinyl flooring


We are doing a kitchen remod and need help with the flooring. I like the look of wood but the "builder grade" wood in our foyer is detroyed from moisture. We are going to do a large area. We want to cover our foyer, kitchen and powder room. Tile seems "cold" to me. The Dura Plank seems to be a good solution. Does anyone have any feedback on this product or any suggestions?
Thank you

I would actually recommend a product called Karndean. It is a vinyl that really looks like wood. It is very durable, easy to clean and water poses no threat. I can get you in contact with a distributor- email me at cschloerke@floorcoveringsinternational.com.

I'm shopping too and had pretty well settled on the DuraCeramic until I tested a sample piece. If I'm not mistaken, DuraPlank is just the wood look version of Congoleum's DuraCeramic. It failed miserably! I dropped a pair of scissors from waist high. It chipped badly. Since dropping things has become a hobby of mine, I have ruled out many a floor. I am giving serious looks at the Flexitec vinyl floors now. At least they are relatively easy to repair if needed.

Direct buy prices are not as good as they make you believe.
I beat thier prices every week.

Thier cabinet prices are just about unbeatable but we beat em on that as well.

That $5000 buy in fee will take a chunk out of your program.
They do have good pricing, I guess we just have better.

We have done a number of rooms in our home - bathrooms, foyers, and south facing office - all with Harbinger Vinyl plank. It has withstood the test of time - looks great after 10 years. They have lots of colour choices and a glue down or a clic version. Check the website or call their office for a nearby retail outlet. Excellent product - very "green" and used in lots of major applications like the Olymic Athletes Village in Vancouver!
