wet-hybrid   Hybrids tend to have two kinds of finishes:
  • Smooth finish: This type of hybrids are very smooth and can be slippery and hence not recommended for wet areas.
  • Embossed finish: This type of hybrids have a brushed texture which runs along the grains which improves their slip resistance and also attempts to imitate a timber’s texture.
Yes. Hybrid can be installed on other hard floors provided the surface is fairly flat without much variations. If there are variations then a floor prep may be needed. A floor prep can be done by adding a layer of leveling compound or using Masonite boards.
A hybrid flooring is made predominantly from PVC (vinyl) and limestone powder. Its expansion is the least compared to any other type of flooring.
  • Better resilience than laminates and other floating floors
  • Has great scratch resistance
  • 100% waterproof
  • Easy maintenance
  • Easy installation. The boards can be click-locked together
  • Built-in underlay.
  • Stable with temperature variations and waterproof
  • Compared to laminatesthey can be expensive
  • The subfloor needs to be fairly flatwithout bumpsor variations. If not, a floor prep is needed before hybrid installation
  • The click-lock systems are sensitive and needs to be installed with care. Once installed properly they can last several years.
  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight for several years can lead color variations/fading.
