Nafco by Tarkett


Any thoughts on the "Better Living Collection" of planks?? Can't find much in the way of reviews for the product, so hoping someone here will have some experience with it.

It will be professionally installed in family room, living room, and computer room and used by little boys and their toys, big dogs, and everything else that goes with a busy family.

If you have suggestions for an alternative vinyl product, or style of product like sheeting vs. planks, those opinions would be welcome as well.

Thanks a bunch-
Debbie

Generally Nafco is usually a quality company.
All depends on the quality level of the style. All brands seem to have different price points and you get what you pay for in the material typically.

Maybe someone else has experience with that particular product, can you tell us more specifically what you have chosen?

Re: Nafco by Tarkett


It's listed on their website under Luxury Tile/Classic Plank Collection-specifically the Hand Scraped Collection. It's a higher end product with a 20 year residential warranty/5 year commercial rating. 6"x35"x 1/8" dimension with tritionite wear layer. It's fairly expensive flooring........... I'm just hoping it will be a good choice for our lifestyle. We had decided on vinyl for ease of installation, easy maintenance and replacement, and hopefully durability.

I'm a little uneasy about the *plank* style vs the solid sheet *off the roll* type. Don't know if there would be issues over time because of all the seams.

Thanks for your helps. Appreciate it. Replacing flooring in several rooms is such a big investment.

Looked at the Adura line at another store yesterday. Adura has a very nice selection, and seems comparable to the Nafco?? Anyone have any experience with either of these floors?

I've installed Adura and a couple of other LVT plank floors. They look good.
I understand that Adura has some cutting edge Wood style LVTs just around the corner. (To be installed inthe Konnecto fashion)

Re: Nafco by Tarkett


Thanks Barry. I'm just hoping it's durable and will hold up well, with a good install. I'm not picky about minor scratches, etc........especially since what I picked out has a hand sawn rustic look to it. I would just hate for the plank seams to shrink apart, or have corners and edges lift after a couple years. Will be ordering enough material so I can have extra planks as replacements if need be. I'm just really surprised that there aren't many consumer reviews on the Nafco..........or maybe that's a good thing??

Will keep an eye out for the new product you spoke about, but in the meantime this poor flooring really needs replaced..........like yesterday. :0)

Thanks again-
Debbie

Re: Nafco by Tarkett


Pick one that you like both products are fine.

You could also look at Konecto. The Adura version is called Loc n Go. Same patterns just using the konecto style strips.

You are better off with glue down versus the floating style imo but the floating style is easier to install for a DIYer.

Thanks much. Will have a look at those too. I'm going to have the floor professionally installed. I tackle my fair share of DIY projects, but no time or patience for this one with work, kids, dogs, and moving all the furniture out of the room.

Thanks for all your help everyone.

Debbie
