Perth’s most trusted hybrid flooring team

ironbark_flooringHas your current flooring started to show signs of wear and tear? Is it outdated and leaves you embarrassed when guests come over? Or, are you simply ready for a change and looking to transform your home?

A hybrid floor is a modern, innovative, and affordable solution.

Let’s be honest, ripping up your flooring and replacing it is going to set you back a serious chunk of change, not to mention the disruption to your daily routine. Hybrid floors consist of a rigid vinyl composite that seamlessly blends the convenience of a floating floor installation (meaning no massive renovations or demolition required) with the practical waterproof qualities of vinyl.

The result? A floor that’s resistant to scratches, stains, fading, and heat. Easy to install, hybrid flooring can be used throughout your home (including bathrooms, toilets, and laundry) for a consistent flooring aesthetic that doesn’t just look stunning but is strong enough to stand up to the lifestyle of a busy home.

We’re proud to supply and install Perth’s leading hybrid products from Woodpecker Flooring to ensure a high-quality and industry-leading service on all jobs, big and small. Discover the future of flooring by calling the Allen Brothers Flooring team on 0407 983 020 or requesting a fast and FREE quote online today.

What is hybrid flooring?

Hybrid floors are an innovative and modern type of waterproof flooring highly suited to busy Perth homes of all shapes and sizes. Manufactured by pressing multiple layers of materials together, the resulting floor is 100% waterproof and able to handle spills and liquid of all types, making them ideal for the kitchen or other wet areas.

“But are hybrid floors as stylish as they are strong?”

That’s the question going through your mind right now. We get it, a durable and hard-wearing floor is great, but if it looks drab and dull then it’s tough to invest your hard-earned money. So here’s the good news (scratch that...GREAT news), through technology used to mimic the grains, edges, and variations of natural hardwood, you can enjoy the rustic charm of a timber floor with the unbeatable strength and durability of composite.

That’s the ultimate win-win.

Sure, you want to save on the costs of real timber, but why choose hybrid floors?

Are they *really* worth it over other alternatives? You could also take a look at options like wood-look tiles or engineered vinyl planks. What makes hybrid flooring so special?

It comes down to the fact that hybrid floors can have the look of wood for less cost with more durability. That core at the heart of the hybrid flooring, known as Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) or Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) are both incredibly strong. They’ll hold up much better than tiles, again for less of a cost. They’re also UV protected, waterproof, and super simple to maintain.

Hybrid floors also come in many more varieties than an engineered vinyl. It’s almost impossible not to find a hybrid floor that simulates the wood colour, grain, and look you want in your home. And Australian brands specifically create options that mimic natural Australian hardwoods like ironbark or blackbutt.

How are hybrid floors installed?

Installing new flooring is an exciting upgrade to your Perth home, but you’re probably wondering how long it will take. If new floors keep you out of your home for days (or weeks), you’ll be facing a logistical nightmare before you even get started.

With hybrid floors, you don’t need to worry about complex or disruptive installs. This form of modern flooring utilises a “floating floor” structure that doesn’t require nails or glue. Each board is locked together using a simple click-lock system from end-to-end that “floats” above your floor.

This means your new hybrid floors can be installed on practically any surface as long as it’s clean, dry, and flat. The user-friendly tongue and groove technology are suited to concrete surfaces, ceramic floors, or even plywood.

How much do hybrid floors cost in Perth?

Hybrid flooring boasts a number of advantages over other flooring options. From its 100% waterproof qualities to its robust protection and durable qualities, it’s easy to assume you’ll be paying a premium for this popular flooring option - but hybrid floors are one of the most affordable choices when it comes to the floor under your feet.

As an average, you can expect to pay between $40 to $60 per m2 for the boards. You’ll also need to factor in an additional $25 to $25 per m2 for installation.

However, these figures represent the average job. You’ll need to factor in the size of your floor, the specific hybrid floor product of your choice, and any necessary floor preparation prior to installation. At Allen Brothers Flooring, we understand the importance of keeping home improvement costs down, so get in touch with our team for a fast and FREE quote to put our quality and affordability to the test.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hybrid Flooring in Perth

Will my hybrid floor be noisy?

It’s easy to fall in love with a new floor online or in a catalogue, then realise every footstep sounds like a local construction site jackhammer when you’re trying to sleep and someone is walking down the hallway. Don’t stress though, because you can sleep soundly with hybrid flooring thanks to built-in acoustic protecting underlay to help reduce noise.

Can hybrid flooring be installed over tile?

Removing old and unwanted tiles is a long (and expensive) process you can do without. It’s natural to ask if hybrid floors can be installed over tiles and the answer is yes - though there are a few stipulations. Your tiles must be in decent shape (meaning no loose tiles or major cracks). You’ll also need to factor in a slight increase in your floor height which may cause problems with doors and appliances if not properly considered. Speak to our experienced flooring experts today to learn about our 5.5mm - 6.5mm hybrid options.

I prefer natural timber, will these floors be right for me?

Natural timber is an appealing and popular flooring choice, but hardwood floors also come with more expensive price points and ongoing maintenance to keep your floors looking fresh and inviting. As a luxury flooring option, hybrid floors take advantage of advanced printing technology and textured finishes to imitate the look AND feel of your favourite natural timbers.

Speak to a member of our team to learn about our wide range of styles, colours, and designs. Or, click here to explore our wide range of timber flooring options.

How much maintenance is required?

Hardly any! Thanks to the advanced click and lock system of installation, a hybrid floor doesn’t offer the same number of gaps and cracks as a traditional timber floor. These keep dust and dirt from settling in your floor (which are a nightmare to remove). Combine this with the 100% waterproof qualities of this innovative product and a wet mop is as fancy as you need to get to remove spills, stains, or muck.
