103055

On today’s episode, Karndean will be installed luxury vinyl tile, LVT, in the new building. Interior Designer, Kalyn Rothaus, chose Karndean specifically because they have been in the flooring business for over 40 years and are considered one of the leaders in LVT. First, Karndean technicians insert sensors into the building’s concrete slab to measure for moisture. Because there is a high level of moisture in the concrete, the Karndean installers will lay down a water barrier product called VeraShield. This will prevent water from seeping through the concrete and affecting the vinyl tile. For the new building, Kalyn has chosen a herring bone pattern LVT. The finished job makes the floors look absolutely fabulous!
