Problem-Solving Floors

Mannington


Today’s homeowners want gorgeous floors that are also grounded in reality when it comes to durability and upkeep.  That’s why at Mannington, we make floors that are more than just a pretty face. Our floors are designed to solve problems that many homeowners encounter on a day-to-day basis, too.

Problem: I want hardwood floors but my home is built on a slab foundation.

Solution:  Mannington engineered hardwood floors

Mannington engineered hardwood floors can be installed direct to concrete, as well as below grade. They’re more stable than a single piece of solid wood so they won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist. That makes Mannington hardwoods, like Cider Mill Hickory  (which taps into the popular trend of reclaimed wood), a great choice for homes on a concrete slab or with a basement application.

Problem:  I’d love to have a wood floor in my bathroom but worry about damage to it from water spills.

Solution: Mannington ADURA® Max floors

ADURA®Max floors are crafted with a HydroLoc™ 100% waterproof core, making them a smart pick for spaces where spills and splashes happen. And this Cape May luxury vinyl plank floor looks so much like sun-weathered wood, you’ll do a double-take.

Problem: We want stylish floors but have kids who act like, well, kids.

Solution: Mannington Restoration Collection® floors

Mannington’s Restoration Collection® floors, like Seaview Pine (a weathered wood look with a relaxes beachy vibe), have 72-hour moisture resistant SpillShield® protection; so spills, messes and muddy little feet don’t matter. Can’t get more kid-friendly than that.

Problem:  I love the luxe look of marble, but not the upkeep.

Solution:  Mannington LVS floors

Unlike real marble that has to be re-sealed over time to keep its good looks, this Lattice LVS floor (which looks like natural Carrara marble in a chic basketweave pattern) is super easy to maintain. Gentle soap and water are all that’s needed to clean most spills, and because this is a luxury vinyl sheet floor, there’s no grout to scrub either.  Like all Mannington LVS floors, Lattice is also made with ScratchResist® surface protection technology that creates a surface so tough, it wears away the ridges on a quarter.

Got a flooring problem to solve? We design floors that’ll do that…and more.
