Flooring – What's Durable, Affordable and Beautiful?

Want a super durable and easy to maintain floor – but one that has more class than linoleum?    Love the look of tile or stone but don’t like the coldness it can have (especially here in Oregon)?

We’ve used and recommended Duraceramic by Congoleum dozens of times and never been disappointed.   Whether you’re looking to remodel your home and want a floor that will last for years and remain beautiful, or want a great look for selling your home – this product is affordable, beautiful and durable.

We installed Duraceramic in our mud room several years ago.  It can be installed with or without grout (I like the grouted look best).  Our mudroom gets lots of traffic and still looks like new – even the grout lines.  Because the grout is a synthetic product they never have to be resealed and don’t chip or break.

Installation is easy too – can be done easily by most do it yourselfers.  Best thing about installation – it’s so easy to cut – doesn’t require a tile cutter or tile saw – just a utility knife.  The adhesive is slow drying and is this products only negative aspect.

We purchase Duraceramic from Jerry Havlinek at JK Carpet Center. He gives us great service, prices and advice.  (Ask him for a discount and mention our name – he’ll give you one!)  JK Carpet Center works with do it yourselfers or can schedule one their installers to make sure the job is done perfectly.  They have a display of color options available in their showroom located at 985 Broadway N.E. Salem OR, 97301.  Phone: 503-363-6033
