Other Konecto Products for Kitchen
 
What is Patina by Konecto - Looks like it is new.?

Are the Konecto tile floors of the same quality as the konecto prestige?

This is for the Kitchen. The only other products I am considering besides konecto are finished glazed /sealed tile or natural polished stone.

I have konecto prestige in the liv / din room / hall / bath. It is great, just not sure we want the same wood look in the kitchen. However, I want something just as strong as konecto for the kitchen. As our kitchen takes heavy abuse, I've had inland in it for years, but I am remodeling and moving cabinets - thus need new flooring. I use a commercial floor scrubber on my floors when they are a real mess - so any flooring I get needs to stand up.

Thanks

Jamie

I am not sure if the quality is the same as prestige, but I know they are of high quality.
They do not make tiles the same as their more affordable variety like Sierra.

What is the latest on Konecto vinyl planks?
 
I nealy purchased 23 boxes of Konecto Prestige vinly planks today online from Floormarket.com due to the "incedibly low price"...$2 less per sf than my local flooring retaliler, even with shipping! However, I found this chatroom, and to my dismay, found numerous postings from 2008 detailing complaints and horror stories about Konecto vinyl planks and recommendations by many people not to buy it.

It was somewhat difficult for me to understand if the complaints were about all the Konecto lines, or just some of them. Is the Prestige line O.K., since it is thicker (4.5mm)? Prestige is what I would like to put in my cottage in Ontario north of Sault Ste. Marie. We do not heat it in the winter. It can get way below zero there in the winter and in the 80's in the summer. It is humid up there too, as we are right on Lake Superior. The last thing I need is flooring problems. I had ruled out click-n-lock laminates due to the moisture there.

Can anyone tell me that Prestige is still worth looking at, or should I consider another product? I have been warned about porcelain tile/grout cracking. Maybe a natural stone product (like slate)with a flexible grout is more appropriate?

Thanks.

I believe Konecto warranty requires a constant temperature between 65-85 F.

Konecto is an interior product only, and must be installed in
a temperature controlled environment, maintained between 65 and 85 degrees F. Please keep in
mind a concrete floor can be up to ten degrees colder than the actual room temperature

From the Konecto installation instructions.

Thank you so much for the info on the installatiion of Konecto planks. I guess I should have read researched them first.
