Amtico, Karndean: Before You Buy
If you choose Amtico or Karndean, you are starting with a fantastic flooring product! Get the next two aspects right and you should get a fantastic finish too:
- Talk To A Specialist: When it comes to Amtico and Karndean, always work with a professional flooring company who supply and install, using dedicated Amtico/Kardean/LVT fitters. An accredited company will be accredited and able to demonstrate their experience to you with past projects and product knowledge.
- Ensure Your Subfloor Isn’t Sub-standard: As with all vinyl floor coverings, a good quality sub-floor is essential. For LVTs it must be like glass – smooth and level. Any imperfections will show through the flooring over time. If you have a concrete sub-floor, this needs to be screeded. If you have a wooden subfloor, this will need to be covered with plywood and then feather edged. The feather edge will smooth over the screw holes and any slight ridges.
