Flooring and Carpeting/Armstrong Alterna


Building a new home on a lake.  Have a dog and grandkids.  Thinking about installing Armstrong Alterna tiles in the Kitchen, Dining room, foyer, and basement bar area.  What is your thought on this product and its durability?


To be honest with you...I have never seen it before or installed it. However I looked it up and I like the appearance.
My expertise is the installation and the floor prep process before and during the installation.

I would be foolish to try to rate a product and possibly subject to lawsuit....LOL

There will be lots of reviews out there to read. Call the manufacture and tell them of the seasonal changes ...the conditions and the MOISTURE you expect to experience.

Moisture is the enemy of all flooring and vinyl being most susceptible. The manufacture customer service rep will be honest with you and not try to sell you something.

In the upper right is an 800#- just above the live chat tab.
