Three Armstrong Floor Products – Performance Plus hardwood and Duality Premium Plus and StrataMax Better vinyl sheet – were awarded Consumers Digest Best Buy designation as top-rated options for affordable kitchen makeovers. Best Buys in flooring are selected based on quality of construction, range of style options and exclusivity of species or design.
Armstrong's Performance Plus line of "Made in the USA" engineered hardwood flooring, starting at approximately $4.99 per square foot uninstalled, uses proprietary acrylic-infusion technology to give it terrific strength while enhancing the wood's natural beauty.
Duality Premium Plus vinyl sheet flooring offers ultra-realistic 3D visuals along with fiberglass and ToughGuard wear layers that provide durability and superior stain protection. The floors are designed to meet specific performance and lifestyle needs, including glue-down and loose-lay installation options. Consumers Digest editors said, "The Duality Premium Plus line has the widest variety of stone and wood finishes we found among vinyl flooring." Armstrong achieves Duality's stunningly realistic visuals with its exclusive MasterWorks Technology 3D with VTx which, similar to a high-definition television, captures the depth, definition and dimension of natural materials, so that stones look and feel like stones, and wood looks and feels like wood.
StrataMax Better vinyl sheet has a 70 percent stone content in the base layer that holds the floor down and adds durability. Consumers Digest found its 26 stone designs to be notable. According to Consumers Digest, "You'd have to spend nearly $1 more per square foot to get a longer warranty period...."
"We are thrilled to be recognized by this notable organization. We devote top engineering, design and manufacturing processes to every product, and the evaluation by Consumers Digest is seen as a benchmark of quality, highlighting the durability, beauty and performance of our popular flooring lines," said Villanueva-Heras.
