Why Is Hybrid Vinyl Flooring So Revolutionary?

First there was vinyl, then there was laminate. Now, the new kid on the floor covering block is the aptly named ‘hybrid flooring’.

Hybrid flooring is exactly what it sounds like. It is a fusion of two of the existing – and well-known – flooring options that are currently on the market. Hybrid flooring can do what current flooring options can’t, without taking away from the finished look or compromising on that all-important underfoot comfort.

Want to know more about the product that is making waves across Australia? We answer some of the most commonly asked questions about hybrid flooring below.

What Is Hybrid Flooring?

Hybrid flooring is a revolutionary new product that gives you the look of hardwood while combining the best attributes of laminate and vinyl floors. It has the rigidity that vinyl lacks, but more to offer than a traditional laminate. The result is a floor that is stylish, durable and fully waterproof.

Why is hybrid flooring so revolutionary?

Hybrid flooring is dubbed as the next generation in flooring technology. Thanks to it being 100% waterproof (not just water resistant), is the first rigid flooring product that isn’t room exclusive. That means you can have hybrid flooring installed in most rooms of your house.

It must be said, however, that rooms that traditionally can collect moisture due to steam and condensation can settle under floating floors and may cause mildew down the track. This needs to be taken into consideration after discussion with our Flooring Specialists and the condition and level of your floors.

Finally, a hard-wearing, hardwood-look flooring that you can keep consistent and lay in the house!

What Are The Features Of Hybrid Flooring?

Hybrid flooring is a very resilient floor covering. Not only is it 100% waterproof thanks to the limestone composite core board, but it can withstand direct heat and extreme cold. Even with underfloor heating or in fluctuating temperatures, the boards expand and contract minimally. This means no lifting, cracking or buckling of your flooring as the temperature changes.

The same technology that makes the hybrid flooring waterproof also keeps it odour-proof. Why is this important? Well, the fact that the flooring is odour-proof, combined with the non-scratch surface and stain resistance, makes it perfect for laying in homes with pets.

How Do You Install Hybrid Flooring?

The hybrid flooring installation process is exactly the same as with laminate flooring. Using a click and lock system, the hybrid boards slide and secure into each other with ease. For an in-depth guide on the process, take a look at our guide to laying hybrid flooring.
