Beware of Imitations

October 14, 2015

Recently, we have become aware of several flooring retailers who are selling various brands of vinyl flooring using variations of our brand names. We at XL Flooring want to caution consumers that the brand names Flexiplank, Drop & Done, and Simple Plank are trademarked by XL Flooring Co., and only us and our subsidiaries are entitled to use these names. If you are looking to purchase one of our products, here are some tips you can use:

1. Look at the box – all of our boxes contain our product name and clearly indicate that our product is imported from Korea by one of the following three companies: Laurentian Sales, XL Flooring, or Laurentian Imports. If you do not see one of these distribution companies, or if the product is made in China, it is not our product.

2. Is glue required? – if glue is required for your installation, it is likely that you have a competitors product. Only a perimeter glue is required for our installations.

3. Look at the thickness – all of our products are 5mm thick and boast a 0.5mm (20 mils) wear-layer.

4. Look at the back – coming soon, all of our products will have a distinctive XL Flooring pattern on the back (excluding Simple Plank) to differentiate our product from knock-offs.

5. Cost – they say if something is “too good to be true” it often is.

We know you want to be sure that what you purchase for your home is safe, is of high-quality, and will last you for generations and that is why we believe you should know before you buy. When you purchase an XL Flooring product, you can be sure that we will exceed your expectations and you will have a floor that will be both beautiful and durable.

If you are unsure, or if you would like further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us at: questions@xlflooring.ca. Further, if you feel that you have been misled, or if you would like to report unauthorized usage of our trademarks, we would appreciate hearing from you.
