Greetings all. I am a newbie here in search of opinions. We recently woke up to several gallons of water in the kitchen from a busted washing machine hose.
The old vinyl is up, floors dried out and damaged sub floor has been replaced.
Now it is time to choose replacement vinyl. Insurance is allowing $4.38 Sqft for replacement as we had a 20 year old top of the line Armstrong floor removed.
My question... I am torn between using Armstrong Natural Fusion with a 20 Year warranty and Earthscapes Flex Floor that also has a 20 year warranty. Both are covered by insurance replacement and the final choice will be installed by a pro.
Any suggestions or opinions as to which is the better floor?
I viewed the IVC videos and the Flex Floors seem to be more fragile and require more special care. Is this correct?
Are there installation procedures I should make sure are followed for each product (underlayment, adhesive type and application, seaming, etc)?
Sorry to be so verbose in my first post but I have a wife that is all up my &*^!% to get her home back in order.
Thanks in advance
