The demand for waterproof vinyl plank flooring is still hot in the islands. It is the No. 1 seller for most retail flooring stores and contractors who do residential new home construction or remodeling projects. One of the top selling brands is Engage Genesis by Metroflor. Sales of Engage Genesis have been steadily growing since it started selling in the Hawaii market two years ago. It is one of the most asked for brands by shoppers looking to change their floor.

The key to Engage Genesis’ success in the Hawaii market is their local style wood patterns that fulfill a homeowner’s design scheme. You have wood pattern choices like Royal Koa and Mango from the Island collection to name a few. There is also a Coastal Collection that has patterns like Waimea or Kahala for those homes looking for that contemporary look. There is also a new Tile Collection with patterns for those looking for that stone or ceramic look. All three of these collections are only made for and sold in Hawaii.


Metroflor, the manufacturer of Engage Genesis believes that the company has created the best waterproof vinyl flooring product in the market today. The flooring was developed with a pioneering new technology called Isocore, an extruded closed cell PVC structure that does not absorb liquids, thus making it waterproof.

This core is very rigid and along with locking joints, has the strength to span minor subfloor irregularities and be installed floating over a bare floor or existing hard surface flooring already down. There is an underlayment pad attached for comfort under foot and sound reduction for a quiet environment.

On the surface, there is a thick vinyl wear layer that protects that pattern from wearing out, stains and scuffs. The surface and underlayment is treated with “Ultra Fresh” that inhibits the growth of bacteria, and fungi and eliminates odors, providing a clean and hygienic surface to live on. It is “pet friendly” and can withstand your pets’ daily inhabitance and unwelcome accidents.


There are several different price points to fit your budget.

There is a manufacturer’s residential warranty from 15 years to lifetime, depending on the product purchased. The warranty will cover water damage with exclusions.
