Armstrong Wins Consumers Digest ‘Best Buy’ Rating for Hardwood and Resilient Products
Issue Time:2016-05-16

Armstrong Flooring announced that four of its products in the engineered hardwood and vinyl categories received the Consumers Digest Best Buy Rating.

The company is the only flooring manufacturer to have four of its products recognized with individual awards, including a clean sweep in the vinyl flooring category. 

Products recognized by Consumers Digest as “Exceptional Value” are Performance Plus Hardwood (in the engineered wood category), Duality Premium Plus vinyl and StrataMax Better and Best sheet vinyls. The Consumers Digest Flooring Best Buy recipients are selected based on quality of construction, range of style options and exclusivity of species or design.

Consumers Digest was founded on the premise of arming consumers with the knowledge needed to buy with confidence,” said Joe Bondi, senior vice president—North America residential. “We are honored that our products have been recognized by this trusted organization and that they are held in high regard by its readership. As a benchmark of quality, recognition from Consumers Digest underscores the design, durability and performance of our innovative flooring lines.”

Selected as a Best Buy in the engineered wood category, Performance Plus, made in the U.S., is an acrylic-impregnated engineered hardwood offering superior durability and dent resistance over traditional hardwood. It is available in high and low gloss options. 

In the vinyl category, Duality Premium Plus flooring is a repeat Best Buy selection delivering a combination of features and warranty among vinyl flooring, according to Consumers Digest. The vinyl sheet flooring has a fiberglass structure for ultra-durability and 3D visuals for cleaner, sharper patterns, improved color clarity and improved embossing.

StrataMax high-performance vinyl flooring was named a Best Buy thanks to its strong warranty and its resistance to rips, tears and gouges. Both the Better and Best collections feature a base layer with 70% stone content that holds the floor down and adds durability.
