Style From the Ground Up – COREtec Vinyl Flooring


Looking to perk up your indoor spaces? Why not start with new vinyl flooring? Beauty, function, and durability – floor coverings lend all these and more. Whether refreshing the kitchen or bath, living or dining rooms, or redecorating a basement space, vinyl flooring has much to offer.


One flooring brand that we recommend is COREtec by US Floors. This engineered luxury flooring offers the look of hardwood with the great benefits of vinyl.


Here are six reasons why COREtec is a brand we trust:


1) COREtec is Durable.


COREtec luxury vinyl flooring holds up well under pressure. Its UV acrylic finish resists stains, chips, and dents and is easy to clean. This resilient finish holds up well in high traffic areas, so is suitable for home or commercial use. It’ll hold up well against kids, pets, parties, or most anything that treads its way.


2) COREtec is Comfortable.


The good people at COREtec tell us we can, “Enjoy the look of wood with the comfort of cork.” COREtec luxury vinyl flooring’s bottom layer is actually an attached cork underlayment that absorbs subfloor imperfections and resists mold and mildew. This also means it’s warm and quiet and easy on your feet. That sounds good after a long day, doesn’t it?


3) COREtec is Practical.


COREtec’s 100% waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is safe for installation in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry and mud rooms, and any other space prone to muddy footprints, small puddles, or other adventures and mishaps involving water or apple juice. Clean up is easy. As necessary, spot clean with a damp cloth, or for the entire floor, simply sweep or dust mop to remove loose dirt, then lightly damp mop.


4) COREtec is Eco-Friendly.


Manufactured in the US, COREtec is a leader in the flooring industry and is committed to using eco-friendly and sustainable materials. They’re GREENGUARD Gold Certified for Indoor Air Quality, so you, your family, and your pets can breathe easier indoors. This company’s high standards reflect concern for their fellow citizens and the environment. We appreciate that.


5) COREtec is Easy to Install.


Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer or hiring a flooring contractor, COREtec is installation friendly. There’s no acclimation period necessary; this luxury vinyl flooring can be installed immediately after delivery. It’s also suitable for installation over most existing subfloors such as tile, hardwood, and laminate. Their rigid plant technology helps eliminate inconsistencies due to uneven subfloors. Another bonus – the stability – COREtec doesn’t expand or contract under normal everyday conditions.


6) COREtec is Available in a Variety of Choices.


COREtec helps you bring the look of natural wood inside, offering an array of beautiful colors and styles. These rich textures mimic nature’s best hardwoods – acacia, ash, hickory, maple, oak, pine, and walnut. Their flooring is also available in various sizes to suit every taste and décor, including regular, wide, and long plank.


Distinctive designs can start from the ground up with great flooring. Clothing your floor space with luxury vinyl that offers beauty and durability just makes good sense. Whether you want a striking contrast of rich color and texture, or a quieter look to complement existing décor, consider vinyl among your options.
