Citing rising energy and raw material costs, several resilient flooring manufacturers are raising their prices. Major manufacturers including Armstrong, Congoleum, Mannington and Tarkett are set to rise prices an average of 3 to 5 percent on select lines.

Liz Charbonneau, Congoleum’s vp of marketing, told NFT that the price hikes are needed to offset the rising material costs. “These increases are being reflected across the category because we all have the same raw material needs,” she said.

For its part, Armstrong said the increase would be applied to the company’s full line of commercial vinyl composition tile, as well as select commercial and residential products including sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring.

Congoleum said that all of its residential and commercial lines would be affected.

Mannington noted that the raise in price would affect the company’s Adura Luxury Floors, Stainmaster vinyl, VCT and select Mannington sheet vinyl lines

Tarkett said it will raise prices on its commercial resilient tile from 2 to 6 percent.
