Torlys NatureTEK plus (QuickStep) Waterproof Laminate Flooring
Updated: May 9
Torlys specialize in ground-breaking flooring products and once again their NatureTek (QuickStep) flooring has been astonishing, to say the least. It’s specially designed for households with all types of activity happening inside it.
It’s able to withstand harsh household routines and is made from extraordinarily durable material that is still visually pleasing to the eye. Their NatureTek (QuickStep) flooring is one of the more economical flooring options they provide, but the quality certainly doesn’t slip. Each induvial plank is still made to pristine elegance for the fraction of the price you'd be paying for luxury hardwood flooring.
In this article, we’ll be discussing the key benefits that Torlys NatureTek (QuickStep) provides and how your household would profit from this. It’s certainly a game-changing laminate flooring option and it is much better than your average manufactured laminate flooring out there.
Best Features of Torlys NatureTek Laminate Flooring
We truly think that this laminate flooring is the pinnacle of all flooring types within this price range. It’s honesty overwhelmingly good and would be rude not to express our feelings about it to our viewers. In the flooring industry, we consider Torlys QuickStep laminate as the Lamborghini of Laminate flooring.
You’re probably asking yourself, “what is ScratchGuard”?
It's simply Torlys new and exclusive protection that they place on their laminate flooring to make the product even more scratch resistant. This dramatically decreases the chances of scratches and even micro-scratches appearing on your floor. Micro-scratches can be hard to prevent as they happen naturally through everyday dirt and dust. Even the tiniest pieces of grit can normally leave your flooring with light scratches. This wearing layer is like no other and provides some of the best durability within the laminate flooring industry. With durability being a major factor when purchasing a flooring product, it most definitely doesn’t disappoint.
The GenuEdge™ is all about waterproofing. This innovative technology provides Torlys laminate flooring with superb water protection. This sealer is to keep water out of the joint and core, not to be mixed up with their Hydroseal that repels waters from penetrating through the HDF core.
With both of these high-performance waterproofing techniques, you can be assured that your laminate flooring is completely protected from any water damage. This allows for easier cleaning and less stress if you have pets. We all know that our pets can be messy at times and having that added protection around their water and food bowls really helps.
Torlys offers Uniclic® locking mechanism on all of their QuickStep laminate series. This super tight locking system prevents any water leakages, reduces movement and makes installing the floor extremely simple. Their patented Uniclic® locking mechanism is truly one of a kind and has great reviews throughout the web. They had the ambition to create the best gap-resistant locking system and they’ve managed to do just that.
I thought I would mention repair as it can be a pain for most laminate floor owners. Even though, laminate flooring is considered very durable when it comes to scratches; from time to time, you may occur a scratch on your floor that gets on your nerve and must be repaired.
Most floors would have to be disconnected starting from the nearest wall, all the way up to the damaged board. However, This is not the case when it comes to Torlys QuickStep laminate flooring with Uniclic®. You’re indeed able to replace a single plank without having to back-peddle from the wall to the damaged area. You might ask me how?
Well, It is their Uniclic® locking mechanism that allows you to replace a plank in the middle of the floor with an easy plank replacer tool called Torlys BullDog™. A great benefit to have that most laminate flooring providers don’t offer.
Torlys flooring selection that includes NatureTek plus (QuickStep) is just incredible. With over 15 different ranges with various colors per range, the possibilities are just endless. From vintage dark flooring to modern white, it’s hard not to find suitable flooring for your home. Most laminate flooring options in today's market are roughly 7.5" wide by 48" long. Torlys is one of the only companies that offer super wide and long laminate boards. They offer boards over 9" in width and 80" in length. This is of course the look we're after in our luxury Vancouver homes.
Having such a vast amount of flooring choices is great for any homeowner wanting to upgrade their existing floor, or to gather ideas for a future project. When choosing, you may even find a flooring type that you didn’t even know existed. This makes their laminate flooring line one of the best laminate options in Vancouver.
Torlys understand that a warranty plays an important role when you’re trying to select your home's flooring. Torlys Quickstep laminate flooring has the following warranties to protect its customers.
Wear-through Warranty – The first warranty I would like to mention is their 35-year wear-through warranty. This is limited to wear on the surface of the boards, must be clearly visible and a minimum of 1.4 square centimeters. Just so you know, gloss damage is not deemed to be wear.
Surface Waterproof Warranty – The waterproofing warranty is not to be mixed up with the water resistance warranty (see below) and has a 10-year coverage. To be eligible for this warranty you must be following their installation instructions carefully and make sure you don’t breach them.
Water Resistance Warranty – Unlike the above warranty, this one has a 35-year coverage but only for rooms that aren’t required to have waterproof flooring such as a bedroom.
Stain & Fade Warranty – Whether it's stained from foods, beverages, or general daily cleaning products it shouldn’t stain the flooring and if it does you may be able to claim this warranty. As for fading, sometimes a laminate-type flooring can be damaged by UV rays (sunlight) if exposed daily. This isn’t a common issue for Torlys and if it occurs, you’re able to claim for a warranty replacement or repair.
