“Let The Buyer Have Faith”
Their products are designed to suit every facet of life, making them the ideal flooring solution for where you live, work, learn, heal and play
What started as a two-man cork-cutting shop led by Thomas Armstrong in 1860 has since flourished into the number one manufacturer of resilient wood and flooring products across North America. Established in Pittsburgh in the 19th century, Armstrong Flooring’s first products were delivered by wheelbarrow. Now, more than 150 years later, they operate 15 manufacturing facilities in the United States, China, and Australia. In addition to their innovation and high quality, their principles quickly set them apart, as consumers came to know Armstrong as a flooring company they could trust. While their competition operated with a “buyer beware” mentality, suggesting that consumers have the sole responsibility for discerning the quality of products before purchasing them, Armstrong pioneered the principle “Let the buyer have faith,” as a testament to the quality of his products. This motto is more than just a catchy saying; it is a guarantee that customers can have confidence in their uncompromising quality, innovative designs, unmatched durability, and superior customer service. Although they began as a cork business, Armstrong Flooring has since evolved into a hardwood, vinyl, and laminate flooring manufacturer. Their expansion into a wide range of flooring types is an indication of their dedication to innovation and their desire to meet the needs of modern consumers. At Chestnut flooring, we carry a vast selection of Armstrong Flooring in Toronto, ideal for both residential and commercial renovations.

- Wear Layer: Utilizing VisionGuard®, this is a clear, hardened wear layer which works to protect the floor against scratches, spills, stains, and fading
- Design Layer: The beautiful finish of Armstrong’s laminate is a result of the design layer which features crystal clear visuals resembling natural stone and hardwood
- Inner Core: HydraCore™ or HydraCore Plus adds durability and stability to the laminate while also enabling it to absorb sound and resist moisture
- Backing: The final layer provides balance to the laminate, protecting the floor from warping
