how to match two different type of flooring
 
I need some assistance with determining if it is possible to match flooring from two different manufacturers. Here is the problem. I got talked into purchasing Award flooring. I installed it in four 10 x 10 rooms and for the most part we have been satisfied with the product. last year we had water damage in one of the room and I had to remove about 1/3 of the flooring from one if the rooms. When I went back to the store to purchase replacement Award flooring, they said the did not carry the product anymore. I contacted award and was told they do not make it anymore. I have no desire to remove the remaining floor. Is it possible to match a new engineer floor with the existing award floor? The award was 86.5 in length, 7 inch wide, 1/2 inch thick. Thanks

This isn't an answer, but have you contacted the manufacturer?

Not gonna happen.....
different click systems and thicknesses...
best to remove room and start new with a match or contrasting color

good luck

I just had water damage in my home...I'm replacing it now (taking a break). My wife and I tried to match our floors, or find out who made it ours flooring so we could get an exact match. We wanted to avoid replacing the bedrooms and be close enough that a t-molding would break it up and not be noticible. We tried for a couple months and long story short we are replacing it ALL! It isn’t an easy task and I couldnt find anything that was close in color and thickness at the same time. You should be able to find something that is close to the other rooms in color/style but nothing is going to work with the same floor but that floor…your best bet would be to call the manufacture and see if anyone they supply still has it. Good Luck.
