Ring in the New Year with COREtec Flooring



Installing new flooring is a great way to give your home a fresh look for 2018. There are many good options from which to choose. Your selection, of course, depends on several factors, such as the space you wish to cover, its use and traffic potential, and your decorating needs.


One of our favorite flooring lines that is suitable for most any purpose is COREtec by US Floors. This attractive floor covering offers the great benefits of vinyl, yet has the look of hardwood. In addition to being a brand we heartily endorse, COREtec is one of our most popular customer choices. Here are six reasons why this luxury vinyl flooring brand is so well liked among dealers and consumers:


Their Colors & Styles Suit Any Taste


COREtec offers an array of beautiful colors and styles, bringing the look of wood into your home. Their flooring collection offers inspiration from nature’s best hardwoods such as acacia, ash, hickory, maple, oak, pine, and walnut. It’s easy to complement your décor with these rich colors and textures. This fine flooring is available in a variety of sizes too, including regular, wide, and long plank. Whether you want to create a bold, striking statement, or a soft, subtle backdrop for your spaces, COREtec makes it easy to beautify your home.


The Durability is Hard to Beat


COREtec has a UV acrylic finish, which means it holds up well under most any type of foot traffic and everyday living. It resists chips, dents, and stains, so it’ll fare well with your kids, pets, and guests. This beautiful flooring is perfect for commercial use too. Its durable finish resists mold and mildew and is easy to clean, making your floors’ general care that much easier. You can’t beat that, can you?


It’s a Sensible Choice


With its 100% waterproof surface, COREtec is suitable for foyers, living and bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, dining areas, laundry, and mudrooms. This luxury vinyl flooring will endure everything from dust, dirt, mud, and footprints to splashes and little puddles, spills and any other everyday mishaps. Did we mention that clean up is a snap? For small messes, clean with a damp cloth. When cleaning the entire floor, simply sweep or vacuum to remove loose dirt, then lightly damp mop.


Super Easy on Your Feet


This flooring is comfortable, no doubt about it. The COREtec team says we will “Enjoy the look of wood with the comfort of cork.” Sounds good, right? This luxury vinyl flooring’s base layer has an attached cork underlayment that absorbs any subfloor imperfections. It’s easy on all the feet that traverse its way, and it’s warm and quiet too. Who wouldn’t want these wonderful qualities underfoot?


Helps Us Breathe Easy


COREtec is manufactured right here in the US, and as a leader in the flooring industry, they’re committed to using sustainable, eco-friendly materials. They possess the GREENGUARD Gold Certification for Indoor Air Quality, which means that you and your family can breathe easy. COREtec maintains high standards to ensure the environment and its residents are safe. We think this is a very good thing.


Installation is Hassle Free


COREtec covers all the bases. It doesn’t matter if you’re having the floor installed by a trusted contractor or doing it yourself, their flooring is installation friendly. With no acclimation period needed, their luxury vinyl flooring is ready for installation right after delivery. In addition, it is suitable for installation over most existing subfloors such as tile, hardwood, and laminate. Uneven subfloors are no problem; COREtec’s rigid plant technology helps eliminate many of their inconsistencies. Another great, practical asset – this line of flooring won’t expand and contract under normal daily conditions.


As far as we’re concerned, COREtec is the complete package. This wonderful luxury vinyl flooring offers function, durability, and beauty. It’s a great investment for any home or business. Stop in soon and check out what COREtec has to offer. We’ll be happy to help you find the right covering for all your floors.
