    Flooring Range

    As mentioned before Triumph Floors is mainly sold online on the Home Depot website, there you can find 3 collections of Triumph flooring making around 26 unique designs in total.

    All 26 Triumph Floors products are hardwood-look or gray wood-look waterproof vinyl planks. Sizes vary depending online, Triumph also offers some wide plank sizes. Triumph Vinyl Plank comes with pre-attached underlayment meaning it doesn’t need extra underlayment laid prior to installation.

    Triumph flooring is waterproof, which means it can be installed in bathrooms and kitchens however, we don’t recommend installation in walk-in showers and wet rooms where there is constant moisture.

    Here are the key features of Triumph Vinyl Plank flooring;

    Key Features

    • Triumph offers 26 different flooring designs, mostly hardwood-look.
    • Sizes available are 6 x 48 inches and 7 x 48 inches.
    • Overall thickness is 4.2 to 5.0 mm.
    • Triumph Wear Layer thickness is 12 to 20Mil.
    • Pre-Attached Underlayment.
    • 2-day Acclimation required.
    • Triumph Vinyl is Waterproof.
    • Easy to Install, drop and lock.
    • Can be installed over concrete, tile, vinyl and wood subfloors.

    Durability

    When examining the Durability of Vinyl Plank flooring we mostly look at the overall thickness and wear layer thickness. The wear layer is a clear protective layer on the top of vinyl planks that protects from scuffs and scratches.

    Triumph Vinyl Planks thickness figures show that they are of decent quality, the brand’s wear layer is 12-20 Mil thick whilst the overall thickness is between 4.2 and 5.0mm.

    Triumph Floors is similar in thickness to Mohawk Vinyl Planks however it cannot compete with leading brands like Coretec or Cali Bamboo.

    The brand’s flooring also comes with a Lifetime residential warranty.

    Pricing

    Triumph flooring is currently priced at between $2.69 – $3.29 per square foot on their Home Depot online listings. Compared to other Vinyl Planks this is a mid-range price tag similar to Shaw and NuCore Vinyl Plank flooring.

    However, we have to say that Triumph Floors loses out to similarly priced brands on the overall thickness and wear layer thickness. For example, NuCore LVP has an overall thickness of 5.5 – 8.0mm and a 22 MIL layer whilst Triumph has a lower 4.2 – 5.0 mm overall thickness and a maximum wear layer thickness of 20 MIL.

    Low-Priced Vinyl Plank brands such as the Home Decorators Collection LVP are much cheaper but have similar plank thickness specifications.

    Overall we can say that Triumph flooring is slightly over the average price for what it is. Only just slightly, it is not very expensive by any means.

    Triumph Flooring Reviews

    After doing some research online we found that there are hardly any Triumph flooring reviews to be found anywhere. Even on the Home Depot website where the flooring is sold, we found 0 triumph reviews, disappointing, to say the least.

    This for us in a big downside of the brand as we usually expect to see lots of online reviews on Vinyl Plank products in order to find out what other customers think about Triumph flooring.

    Overall Triumph has a basically empty online reviews profile, we can’t judge the flooring brands’ public rating with such a small database of reviews.

    Installation

    Triumph Floors Vinyl Plank flooring can be installed using a click and lock mechanism using the floating installation method.

    The floating method is when the flooring is not fixed to the subfloor but just installed over it, the planks are locked together using a Click to Lock system. This method is the most common with Vinyl Plank flooring and is the easiest to do for an installation beginner.

    Before Installation, your subfloor should be free from any moisture, completely level, and structurally in good shape. If your existing subfloor is uneven we recommend installing a new plywood subfloor (at least 6mm thick) or pouring down self-leveling concrete.

    Maintainance

    Care and maintenance are critical for a long-lasting vinyl plank floor. Below are some tips and instructions to keep your floors looking fresh for longer.

    Keep Your Floors Clean

    Vacuuming and mopping your floor regularly is vital to its lifespan. Dust and dirt act as abrasive and cause scratches on the wear layer. Hence why, it’s crucial to always vacuum your floor before mopping. Unfortunately, some vacuums will damage your floor, so it’s essential to only use a vacuum suitable for hard surface floors.

    As for mopping, it’s important not to over-saturate your floor. For best results, we recommend using a spray mop that dispenses a fine mist of water mixed with a cleaning solution on your floor with the touch of a button. This also avoids spillages caused by having to use a water bucket. Furthermore, it would be best if you used a PH-neutral solution. Household dish soap is fine as long as you don’t use too much soap. For best results, we recommend using Bona Hard-Surface Floor Cleaner.

    Furthermore, it’s important to avoid all-purpose or multi-purpose cleaner as it’s often not PH-neutral. Contrary to the fact that some brands allow it, we recommend not using a steam mop. Although they are easy to use, they will cause your floor to become dull faster due to the heat. Speaking of heat, avoid exposing your floor to direct sunlight at peak hours; use blinds or curtains if necessary.

    Protect Your Floor

    There are several ways to protect your floor from damage. Below are some of the best and most common protection methods to adopt.

    • Attach large-diameter felt pads to furniture legs. This allows heavy furniture to glide smoothly on your floor without causing scuffs and scratches.
    • Avoid wearing shoes as they can bring in dirt and damage your floor. It’s best to wear socks.
    • Place rugs in high-traffic areas such as the living area.
    • Be wary of office chair casters; they can destroy your floor. Either replace them with floor-friendly blade casters or place down a protective chair mat.
    • Maintain a room temperature between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This prevents moisture problems.
    • Place down walk-off doormats at house entrances to avoid bringing in dirt from outdoors which can scratch your floor.
    • If you have a dog, nail trimming will prevent them from scratching the floor. Plus, most dogs like their nails to be trimmed now and then.

    Pros and Cons

    Triumph Floors Pros

    Fair Thickness – Triumph vinyl planks have an overall thickness of 4.2 – 5.0mm, this is a decent thickness and about the average for LVP Flooring.

    Triumph Floors Cons

    Average Pricing & Quality – We think Triumph is slightly overpriced looking at the thickness specs and the price compared to other brands with similar specs. For example, brands like NuCore, Mohawk, and Home Decorators Collection are slightly cheaper than Triumph LVP but have similar wear layers and overall thickness.

    Lack of Reviews – We found very few Triumph flooring reviews online. Reviews are very important and the lack of them makes many customers look away.

    Small Product Range – On Home Depot’s website we found around 27 Triumph flooring products. However, the brand doesn’t offer tile-look, herringbone, or mixed-plank size LVP flooring as some other LVP brands do.

    1. This was installed in the home we just bought. We like the look. Does show dirt and scratches but wiping with a damp cloth gets it back to an acceptable look and feel. We like the wood grain and feel. It was installed in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room with a pantry. We are installing it also in the living room and master bedroom.

    2. We had TRIUMP flooring installed about 15 months ago in a hallway, bedroom and a office And are getting places that are breaking out at the joints, at presents 3 different places. WE contacted the installer DGS Flooring and they said to contact the manufacturer and I DID to NO AVAIL. So we contacted the installer again and they contacted the Manufacturer. They sent out a inspector and the results were No manufacture defects based on the fact that we are using office chairs in the area of the break out so the are not claiming any responsibility at all It was a office before the installation and is still a office. 6000.00 dollars down the tubes because of poor materials. If the flooring would not stand up to office chairs we should have been told

      1. Thanks for sharing your experience with TRIUMPH. Office chairs are definitely one of the worst enemies of vinyl planks, laminate, and hardwood. For this reason, Carpets are the most popular choice for offices, banks, schools, and other places where office chairs are used often. To avoid this in the future you can place rugs underneath workstations or go for carpet.

    3. We’re scheduled to have it installed next week in our home office that has desks and office chairs. Will heed your opinion and try to cancel.

      1. We would be very careful with office chairs, they are notorious for scratching vinyl plank floors. You should definitely attach foam pads under the legs of the desks and perhaps place rugs underneath each workstation.

        More Durable Vinyl Plank products such as Shaw Floorte Plus or Coretec Grande are a better option for rooms with office chair use. These two products have a 30mil protection layer and are even suitable for commercial use.

    4. Our Triumph floors were installed just over 2 years ago. Many of the planks are lifting at the joints both lengthwise and horizontally. In some places this is occurring in a high traffic area, while at other sections, the only exposure would be the feet of someone sitting at an island or peninsula. And yes, all chairs have had “foot” pads since Day 1. at present we are waiting for resolution by from the MFR and installer. No scratches or stains, but the several corners have chipped off from the exposed “lifted” planks.

    5. We bought a new home this year that has these floors. We like them. There are some areas that are lifting up. The installation company came out today and took pics to send to manufacturer so we will see what happens. They will fix anyway for us. These seem to be very thin planks though
