Featured Sample: Dockside Duramax by Mannington

Keeping your feet warm during the winter months is hard. While wood floors are beautiful, they are not insulated, making it important to use area rugs or wear fuzzy socks. Mannington has created a laminate floor that is beautiful, durable, and it offers increased insulation keeping it warmer when, baby, it’s cold outside.

Dockside is one style of Mannington’s Duramax flooring. It’s offered in totally modern six-inch planks in three shades that are perfect to use with current paint trends: driftwood, shell, and sand. Driftwood brings to mind summer days spent at the shore, with the warm afternoon sun shining down to keep you warm, and sunset fires where you make s’mores. What could be more perfect when the snow is coming down?

Duramax is one of three ADURA styles. The other two are ADURARigid and ADURAFlex. Each has its own strengths. ADURAMax has an expanded core that offers more insulation, dampening sound in media or music rooms. It is also scratch resistant; perfect for pets and kids.

It is also a floating floor. This means that it doesn’t require being glued to your subfloor. This means it can be used over some types of old flooring, which is wonderful when renovating an older home. It can even be laid over old tile.

While keeping feet warmer, and being noise-proof, Dockside is also waterproof thanks to a HydroLoc Core. That means that when kids or pets come running in after a splash in rain puddles, your floor cannot be harmed.

Dockside is perfect for front entries, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and bathrooms, places where you want the look of a wood floor, but with more durability and easier care. Wood can warp with prolonged exposure to moisture, causing buckling. Dockside will look great for years to come.

Another plus is that this type of flooring is FloorScore certified, which means that it follows strict indoor air quality standards, making it safe for a growing family.  

Dockside needs to be part of your new year remodel.
