Question

Flexitec flooring - need opinions


Brand new member seeking info/opinions on Flexitec floor covering. Will soon be doing some kitchen remodeling. Retail store gives good recommendation, however, it seems so cushiony that I question if chair & table legs cause problems with indentations? (such as worn places or tears?) The width is a plus factor as it would eliminate seams. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks!

Mostly for stylistic reasons, I dont think I would put that stuff in a kitchen. I have seen it installed mostly in shops and garages. But I dont think you would have any issues with it if you did...

Flexitec flooring - need opinions


Has anyone installed this product in their kitchen? I've read that it only needs to be "taped" down and not glued....plus the prices I'm getting are all over the board. The flooring store by me says that it needs to be glued. Also I am trying to find the manufacturer's website and not just the retail stores....any advice?

I installed the flexitec in my kitchen and hallway with the tape and not the glue and it has worked fine. It has been down for three years and handled all the abuse we care to throw at it.

Flexitec is a Resilient flooring. When you put something heavy on it it will have a indention but it will go back in to place once the heavy object is removed. I have heard using a hair dryer on low heat for a bit will make it come up faster if you cant wait. www.flexitecvinyl.com has there product videos in the better than quality than any i have seen on the internet. It looks official and it is being built stuff is being changed every time i look at it.

Just do not use rolling chairs on Flexitec. In fact, chairs with casters void the warranty on almost all flooring products.
