Floortek Floorings is a Vancouver-based company that began its work in 2002. They first started by producing carpet floorings, and following strong success in that area, they began producing engineered hardwood floors. Floortek is part of the HYBC industries and is now one of the best flooring companies in Canada.
Floortek offers you a variety of floorings in different shapes, colors, and sizes. But perhaps the best way to talk about their products is to put them in categories first.
- Engineered Hardwood
- Luxury Vinyl Planks
- SPC – Engineered Tile
Floortek was so well-received in the market that by 2013 their vinyl floors, having swept the nation by storm, had three different categories with more than 50 different colors and designs. To learn more about the differences between these categories, check out our 2-part article on Introduction To All Types of Flooring.
Engineered Hardwood Floors
Natural wood has many upsides, like its general feel and its beautiful color and texture. Unfortunately, it also has many downsides. It isn’t durable for scratches or dents, it isn’t water-resistant to any measure, and it could help grow some unwanted monsters inside. On the other hand, engineered wood has taken hardwood floors to an entirely different level.
Keeping all the pros of natural wood and throwing out all the cons, engineered wood is impeccable in resembling natural wood. In addition, it is durable and resistant to scratches, plus it’s water-resistant.
At D&R Flooring, we believe that Floortek is one of the leading brands in the business, and so we endorse their product and offer their services. Floortek Laminate floors are no exception. With a lifespan of 15 to 25 years, this multi-layered floor comes in various colors and textures that highly resemble natural wood.
Laminate Flooring may not be as well-crafted as Engineered Hardwood, but when it comes to the reconstruction budget, Laminate floors give your house or office a chic look without burning a hole in your pocket.
Just like all their products, Floortek Floorings produces high-quality Vinyl Flooring. Your best choice against water, Vinyl is the most suitable option for bathroom or kitchen flooring. Floortek offers Vinyl in three categories of Luxury Vinyl, SPC – Engineered, and SPC.
Luxury Vinyl gives you the most resemblance to natural hardwood. It is also created by putting different layers together, which helps with its durability and maintenance. SPC and SPC Engineered are Stone Plastic Composite Vinyl floorings that are unlike any other flooring types in durability. These floor panels are created using high-end technologies, and they best resemble natural wood or stone.
As we mentioned before, Floortek started in 2002 by producing carpet floors. So it only makes sense that they are currently one of the forerunners in the country in that area, selling their products from coast to coast.
Floortek offers a wide range of carpets, from classic, sophisticated styles and patterns to more modern and simple designs. While we provide all their products on D&R Flooring, we can’t help advising you to give your house a more complex atmosphere by ordering yourself a classic rug.
We are proud to be working closely with HYBC industries Inc. and offer their products and services to our customers. Floortek provides a 30-year warranty for the private or residential use of its Laminate floors. They also offer a 5-year warranty for the commercial use of their products.
However, for their Vinyl Floors, Floortek offers a lifetime warranty for private use and a 10-year warranty for light commercial use. For the Engineered Hardwood Floors, Floortek provides a 25-year residential wear warranty with no commercial warranty, which tells you Engineered Hardwood is not the best floor to use in your office or commercial building.
