What is Hybrid Flooring?
Experts call Hybrid Flooring the ‘Flooring of the future’ because of its revolutionary combination of vinyl and laminate flooring. Therefore, it is also called Hybrid Vinyl Flooring. With the strength of laminate and the luxurious look of Vinyl, Hybrid Flooring is durable, stylish, and waterproof. This makes Hybrid Flooring perfect for every area of the house. Hybrid Flooring is also a good option for homeowners in Perth, WA, dreaming of classic timber flooring without the hassle of maintenance.
Hybrid Flooring typically consists of a wear-resistant textured top layer, a decorative surface layer, and a rigid or semi-rigid composite substrate. They are generally produced in planks to imitate timber or laminate flooring and are designed for floating installation.
Not only is it 100% waterproof – thanks to the limestone composite core board, but it can withstand direct heat and extreme cold of Perth weather. Even with underfloor heating or fluctuating temperatures, the boards expand and contract minimally. Therefore, there is no lifting, cracking, or buckling of your flooring as the temperature changes.
Using hybrid means you can have a consistent look throughout your home, instead of having to break eye with tiles in the bathrooms, laundry, and toilets. We also see many builders moving from tiles to hybrid flooring because it’s so quick to install. It saves them time on a build that has tight deadlines.
Hybrid floors can do what current flooring options can’t without taking away from the finished look or compromising on that all-important underfoot comfort. Hybrid floors are a revolutionary new product that gives you the look of hardwood while combining the best attributes of laminate and vinyl floors.
What are the benefits of Hybrid Flooring?
Hybrid Flooring is an emerging flooring choice worldwide today. Here are the reasons why:
- Hybrid Flooring is affordable in the sense that it is a floating floor that can be arranged on top of your existing base (if it is flat, unbroken and the grout joints are not too deep) and avoid installation costs.
- Hybrid Flooring is durable through wear and tear, with its stain and scratch resistance properties.
- Hybrid Flooring is low maintenance because it does not require cleaning on the sides for dirt accumulation, and its waterproof property helps in cleaning in case of a spill.
- The acoustic underlay below most hybrid flooring reduces sound and increases the comfort of walking on them.
- Hybrid Flooring is coated with a more rigid top layer, making it resistant to UV rays, scratches, and dents.
- New Wave Flooring provides 25 years of Manufacturer warranty on hybrid flooring.
Vinyl Plank Versus Hybrid Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl Plank comprises a core layer of PVC which has a degree of flexibility and is waterproof. Encasing this is wear layers that are clear coatings providing scratch, stain, and fade resistance above a layer of digitally enhanced photographic imaging that attaches to the vinyl core layer to give natural timber appearance. Protective backing layers also help vinyl plank flooring impervious to water, mold, and mildew.
Perfect for Perth, WA homes, Hybrid vinyl flooring is a composite of vinyl PVC, recycled wood, bamboo dust, and limestone powder. It is similar to the luxury vinyl plank; however, it is generally thicker, making it more comfortable to walk on and more durable. Additionally, we can install both traditional luxury vinyl planks and hybrid floors over existing floors.
Essentially, there are only minor differences between luxury vinyl planks and Hybrid vinyl. They are both fantastic products that look and feel similar to solid hardwood, at only a fraction of the cost.
Is Hybrid Flooring safe for pets and children?
Hybrid Flooring is solid and beautiful because it amalgams two flooring types trending in the market today. In addition, hybrid flooring is waterproof, odor-proof, scratch, and stain-resistant. Additionally, our Hybrid floor does not contain any harmful substances.
The combination of durability and easy maintenance makes Hybrid flooring the perfect choice for households with Kids and Pets.
Does Hybrid Flooring need Underlay?
Our hybrid flooring already has built-in underlay at the back, so you can simply lay directly on the floor.
The hybrid flooring installation process is the same as with laminate flooring. However, using a solid click and lock system, the hybrid boards slide and secure into each other with ease. Therefore, Hybrid flooring is easier to install on existing sub-floors.
The versatility of Hybrid Flooring also allows us to install it over a vinyl sheet, old lino, or even timber flooring, subject to conditions.
Earlier, homeowners only had the option of using tiles in wet areas, which can be a significant expense in a renovation or build. Hybrid Flooring is more cost-effective and is quick and easy to install because they use a click-in system and don’t require any grouting.
Is Hybrid flooring a good option for people seeking quiet?
Hybrid Flooring reduces acoustic noise with its rigid core technology. Our Hybrid Flooring is floating. Therefore, the flooring will be isolated from the structure of the building. We can reduce the possibility of sound passing between floors and into the room below this way.
Therefore, our Hybrid Flooring in Perth suits multi-level apartments that require flooring with low sound transmission.
