Disclaimer: This matrix is merely a guideline of our products in general. Some of our carpets are less prone to staining due to their yarn component. Some laminates do have water resistant capabilities and a few of our LVT’s have insulation material on their backing to improve their noise factor. For these reasons we suggest you also consider the flooring guide icons and the maintenance guide for each product before making a final decision. Remember our trained sales professionals are available to assist you in making the right choice.
