Vinyl Tile: Durable, Warm, and Versatile Option, With Little to No Downside.

Here at Brinker’s we have Armstrong’s Alterna, as well as Mannington’s Adura. These are the next generation of luxury vinyl tile. They are groutable, realistic, and durable. Not to be confused sheet vinyl, or an ordinary luxury vinyl tile, both Adura, and Alterna bear much resemblance to traditional ceramic, porcelain, or stone tiles.

These products both include a wear layer which—like sheet vinyl—allows for easy maintenance, and protects against surface damage. The high definition image is similar to porcelain, or ceramic tile glazes. Each tile also varies, so that your floor won’t end up with a noticeable repeated pattern. The tile body is a limestone composite. This tile body provides structural strength and durability. These tiles are hard, and water resistant, and still slightly more flexible than other tiles, so much of the breaking and chipping that can be seen in traditional tiles is virtually eliminated. The tile body also provides a textured surface comparable to other tiles. A bonus is that these tiles can be laid with or without grout.

Down sides? We haven’t found any! So how do these tiles look? We’ll let you decide:
