Congoleum said it is set to raise prices from 3 to 5 percent across all of its residential and commercial flooring lines beginning May 15. According to the company, the price increase is the result of rising raw material costs.

“This price increase will be across the board,” noted Liz Charbonneau, Congoleum’s vp marketing. “It includes residential and commercial resilient tile, sheet and other products – including seam sealers and adhesives.”

The announcement comes several days after Armstrong announced a price hike for its resilient flooring. Charbonneau predicts that other manufacturers in the category will also institute increases soon.

“These increases are going to be reflected across the category because we all have the same raw material needs,” she said.
