While a number of homeowners want a stone or porcelain tile floor in their home, they don’t realize the upkeep is more than they bargained for. And speaking of bargains, those stone and porcelain tile floors don’t come cheap. Unlike these traditional flooring choices Armstrong Alterna doesn’t require any special sub flooring or sealing and is much more comfortable under foot in regards to being warmer and not as hard.
Thanks to improved technology Armstrong Alterna is a floor that recreates the natural look of stone or porcelain tile floor without the cold and hard feel underfoot. And the looks don’t stop with just stone or tile, the Armstrong Alterna product comes in varieties of ceramic, concrete and marble as well.
The Armstrong Alterna product at American Carpet Wholesalers of Georgia is a very durable floor. It is water, scratch, and stain repellant. And the stone version is crack resistant, making it a great choice for homes that have a chance at giving floors a real workout every day. And Alterna Plank is made with Diamond 10 technology. The durability doesn’t just apply to residential floors, the Armstrong Alterna product looks and performs terrifically in commercial businesses too! Residential installations have a lifetime limited warranty and commercial uses have a five year limited light commercial warranty – both against manufacturing defects.
Armstrong Alterna flooring has a great wear layer to help with sound absorption. Why should you care? With other flooring you can encounter an echo effect where sound bounces all around the room.

Installation is relatively simple. Using only a few tools and some of the Armstrong Alterna adhesive you will be good to go. If you don’t feel confident, no worries, any flooring installer will be able to easily work with Armstrong Alterna. And since it is such an easy install the professional should be in and out in no time.
