Home News Watch: How to install Cali Vinyl Longboards

San Diego, Calif.—Cali kicked off this year’s spring selling season with a fresh luxury vinyl plank collection— Cali Vinyl Longboards. Recently, the company added new colors said to be reminiscent of driftwood that satisfy current customer demand for lighter neutrals that are easy to design with. Here, Cali explains how to properly install the large-format planks.

About Longboards

Cali vinyl longboardsTrue to its name, the new flooring offers extra-large dimensions with planks measuring 70 ⅞ inches long x 9 inches wide. The expanded rigid core boards (over 45% longer than original Cali Vinyl planks) allow installations to go faster and deliver more open looking spaces.

The Longboards moniker also pays tribute to the coastal inspirations that framed Cali’s origins 15 years ago. Highly detailed wood grain imagery achieved eight original styles, including North Shore OakPoint Break Pine and Windswell Hickory, with colors that infuse homes with seaside serenity. Longboards floors also feel like hardwood, with specialized knot and grain embossing that matches up with what you see.

“The visuals were incredible and definitely some of the best I have seen in wide-format, long-plank SPC [stone plastic composite],” said Dan Mandel of Sterling Carpet & Flooring in Orange County, California. “Also an amazing color line that works great in our marketplace. High quality at a very competitive price point.”

Like all Cali Vinyl collections, Longboards are 100% waterproof vinyl flooring and can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms and below grade. An extra-durable construction allows for easy cleaning and includes a commercial-grade, 20-mil, scratch-resistant wear layer for high-traffic walkways.

A GeoCore limestone composite SPC flooring foundation increases dimensional stability, allowing planks to be installed right out of the box without any acclimation or transition pieces. Attached acoustic padding lines each plank making for quieter rooms and softer steps.
