At the end of 2018, we posted a blog (Flooring Products & Tariffs: What You Should Know) about tariffs being implemented on products being shipped to the United States from China. We discussed how this will impact the flooring industry, although we didn’t know how much or how soon. There have been small price increases since that time, but beginning this month, we are seeing more drastic price increases, particularly in the luxury vinyl flooring category.
Most luxury vinyl flooring comes from China; therefore, it is affected by the tariffs. The increased cost and the timing of the increase will vary by supplier. We will do our best to inform customers of current pricing but be aware that pricing may change with little notice.
We want to be upfront with our customers so you will understand any sudden price increases in certain types of flooring. As always, we provide many styles of flooring, so not all products will be affected. Many products we carry are made in the U.S.A so the tariffs will not influence them. Please just keep these things in mind as you shop for new flooring this summer and fall.
If you have additional questions, we will do our best to help. You can give us a call at 952-933-8944 or contact us.
