soft flooring: sobella, earthscape, flexitec

cheerpeopleFebruary 9, 2011

My earlier post got lost or deleted. I'll be less specific in case it was the later..I will not list vendor names and prices just in case.

I had priced soft flooring and found one company that sells a vinyl sheet flooring with a fiberglass layer to have a higher price. They then give you a 25% contractor discount for a new build, which brings it back to the price of the other companies with no such discount for me

I was wondering if you think the Mannington Sobella is all that much better, or is Flexitec, and IVC Earthscape just as good?

Please share your experiences, thx

I have just had Sobella installed and it looks to be a very tough product. unfortunately I am going thru an warranty issue at the moment because what was installed looked very little like the sample, so I think it will end up being replaced. They have a great warranty. Other than that one issue, it is comfy to walk on and looks a cut above regular sheet goods. I chose it because I am on a drug that causes foot pain and I could not bear ceramic tiles.

thx Blondie,
It looks like I really need the 13.2 ft wide size of the flexitec/earthscape so I'll be choosing one of those. The floorpro website has a lot of info
