Flooring solutions that transform a home’s interior & exterior from bland to stunning.

For the recent flooring makeover of a home’s interior and exterior, WanabiWood’s EchoDeck Composite Decking and EchoWood Vinyl flooring were selected as the ideal durable, sustainable and cost-effective long term solution. With young children and pet paws in mind, the selected product ranges were ideal to achieve everything that the family were hoping for: easy to clean, scratch-proof, water-, stain- and slip-resistant.

The first phase of the makeover focused on the interior space where their client sought continuous floors flowing through from their open plan kitchen, lounge and dining room into the bedrooms and bathrooms. As WanabiWood’s EchoWood Vinyl flooring can be installed in all areas, including bathrooms and kitchens, it was the best option for the client.

Other concerns that had to be factored in were the original tiles that had to be removed and replaced as they were worn, scratched and cracked. An additional benefit is that EchoWood Vinyl flooring can be installed over existing tiles without any further mess or dust, which saves on costs and time.

With a specialised adhesive and self-levelling screed, the vinyl planks were installed without an underlay over the prepared tiles for a perfect installation and finish without any shifting, lifting or bumps. Sahara Sand Luxury Click vinyl transformed the client’s interior spaces and exceeded their expectations.

The second stage of the makeover involved the pool area. As opposed to installing higher maintenance, real wood decking, EchoDeck Composite Decking was selected as the alternative, sustainable solution which also offer a 25 year warranty. It has several advantages which appealed to the client, including the fact that it is environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable, waterproof, durable, offers high-strength and UV protection, is low maintenance and tested in severe climatic conditions with temperatures ranging from below – 40ºC to 60ºC.

The decking was installed over a metal framework structure that was built around the pool to achieve a modern streamlined finish. The deep brown, coffee coloured selection grounds the space and links the patio’s level to the rest of the house. Both the interior and exterior were completed to the delight of the client. “We finally have a home that truly captures the saying ‘Home is where the heart is’,” they exclaimed.

WanabiWood’s alternative EchoDeck Composite Square Tile range also offers an easy installation solution and can be installed directly onto an existing flooring surface such as tiles without necessitating the construction of a subfloor structure.

WanabiWood’s commitment, support and membership with the South African Wood, Laminate and Flooring Association (SAWLFA), as well as the Green Building Councils’ ‘Green Builder’ product range, contributes to their product lines’ great success. Their innovative flooring captures the beauty, healthy living and elegance of natural looking wood, without negatively impacting the sustainability of our living forests.
