Options for Luxury Vinyl & Linoleum at Our Port Alberni Warehouse

At The Flooring Depot, we boast about having the largest stock around. So naturally, our selection wouldn’t be complete without options for luxury vinyl and linoleum at our Port Alberni warehouse! While both materials have been around since the early 1900s, these flooring solutions have stood the test of time as some of the most durable and popular materials used. With the ability to mimic the look of real hardwood, ceramic and stone materials at the fraction of a cost, property owners can enjoy having their home or business finished in a cost-effective way without having to sacrifice the look of a high-grade material.
