Product Spotlight: Luxury Vinyl Tile
Hamilton Parker has long been known as the go-to in for all things tile and natural stone, but more recently they’ve added Luxury Vinyl Tile to the mix.
“Here at HP, it is important to us that we always stay connected with the industry and the ever-changing needs and demands of our customers. Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) has been taking the industry by storm for the last few years. With such an increase in customer demand we knew it was here to stay, so we needed to bring the best options to our customers,” said Amie Anderl, Branch Director.
While Hamilton Parker offers several different lines, one of the most sought after, especially commercially, is Parterre, a brand that Hamilton Parker has exclusive distributorship for the entire state of Ohio. Parterre was selected as a leading brand by HP because they are known for unparalleled quality; offering both a large variety of designs and commercial industry-leading durability.
As stated on their website, “Parterre vinyl flooring is designed to meet the unique demands of a wide variety of applications. From hotels and hospitals to restaurants and retail spaces, Parterre’s commercial vinyl flooring is among the most versatile and durable vinyl flooring option available.”
When compared to other flooring options, LVT is a stand-out for both residential and commercial projects alike for multiple reasons.
Design: With endless choices of colors, styles, and designs to choose from, there are practically unlimited options. Advances in technology in manufacturing have allowed the industry to provide looks ranging from wood plank, to natural marble and stone, to fabrics. They range from muted, natural tones to bold, vibrant colors.
Durability: LVT is so durable and stable it’s suitable for high traffic areas and is also highly water resistant.
Ease of Use: Not only is LVT low maintenance, contractors love it due to ease of installation and repairs.
Environmentally Friendly: Most premium brands of LVT are made from PVC, which is made of recycled materials and is recyclable. Parterre takes it even farther, using salt, one of the earth’s most abundant natural resources, as a main ingredient in their floors, further reducing the carbon footprint.
Cost Effective: When compared to other flooring types LVT is very affordable. Not only is the actual material a great value, but the combination of the ease of installation and minimal setting materials needed, make it a great option.
Lifespan: While it will vary from product to product, and project to project, LVT is made to last 30-plus years depending on a combination of quality, maintenance, and use. 20 mil is the industry standard for commercial applications, while anything from 6-10 mil is sufficient for residential use.
While LVT is offered through many suppliers, at Hamilton Parker they strive to build relationships, not simply make a transactional sale; they want to be both a resource and a partner. They are a third generation, Ohio family owned business, that has served the design and construction industries since 1934. Their vision statement is: “Our purpose is to achieve our customer’s vision through trust and expertise.”
Amie Anderl noted, “We really value being part of the industry and know the significance of partnering with other professionals; designers and architects. Partnerships such as this always deliver the most enjoyable projects along with the best results and projects we can all be proud of.”
