Why Choose Amtico Flooring?
What is Amtico Flooring?
Amtico flooring is a 100% natural luxury vinyl (LVM) wood look laminate flooring designed, engineered and manufactured by Amtico International. The unique patented design includes many benefits - meaning greater style choices and the opportunity to create any kind of interior space you desire with floors that have a truly seamless finish.
In fact, real wood offers no practical advantages over the Amtico system – apart from the obvious aesthetic appeal. And it can't compare in terms of durability, creature comforts or ease of maintenance.
Amtico is committed to quality in every aspect of its product development as well as being class-leading when it comes to innovation and continual improvement – including rigorous testing of all components for performance throughout the lifetime of every floor.
And because it's 100% waterproof, Amtico is the perfect choice for kitchens and bathrooms too – no matter how much you spend on fitting out your bathroom suite, let alone that high-spec shower.
So whether you're one of those people who love to keep up with the latest trends or you just love beautiful floors without compromise, then Amtico is a great option.
The real wood veneer flooring offered by other suppliers can't compete in terms of performance when compared against Amtico 's range of decorative vinyl floors - from robust tiles to sustainable planks.
Can you lay Amtico floor tiles on floorboards?
You can if you want to. But why would you? What about possible expansion and contraction due to weather changes? Won't the laminate expand or contract more than floorboards, causing gaps in your floor finish? This however isn't a problem for Amtico.
How do I keep my Amtico floors clean?
Amtico has a range of cleaning products designed to keep its vinyl floors looking their best. This also includes solid oak flooring. The recommendation is to use regular household cleaners such as Dettol Multi-Surface Cleaner with Microban to ensure your floors are always clear of dust and dirt. Use damp mops to remove loose soils followed by a dry cloth. Soap scum should be removed using a soft brush and warm water. You should avoid abrasive brushes, cleansers and chemical cleaning products as they will scratch the surface of your floors.
Does Amtico flooring need underlay?
