If you are looking for a floor that is a combination of style and performance, then check out luxury vinyl. Not only does it feature those qualities, but it also offers comfort that you cannot get with anything else. Keep in mind, however, that not all luxury vinyl floors are the same. One option seems to stand tall above the rest and that is COREtec. COREtec offers enough natural style, performance, and comfort for any area in your home!
COREtec is engineered to look exactly like real wood or stone flooring. Due to an extremely precise manufacturing process, COREtec planks and tiles look so much like real wood or tile. It is hard to tell at first glance that they are not. COREtec flooring options including COREtec Plus and COREtec Plus HD feature embossed-in-register technology for real-life surface textures.
What sets COREtec apart from any other luxury vinyl floor is its performance. Every COREtec floor has COREtec’s unique core that is made from recycled wood, bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC. With this core structure, COREtec floors are extremely strong and stable and can handle heavy foot traffic and other potential impacts much better than hardwood, laminate, and other hard surfaces.
COREtec core structure also makes the planks and tiles 100% waterproof. You can simply wipe any spills from the surface without any long-term consequences. COREtec planks will never expand or contract under moist or humid conditions, unlike hardwood flooring. COREtec is suitable for below, on, and above ground settings, including kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
Most COREtec products include an attached cork underlayment. They use cork because it is flexible and features insulating properties that make the planks and tiles feel warmer to the touch compared to other natural floorings. Given this cork construction, underlayment provides COREtec with extra softness, so COREtec is rather comfortable underfoot. The cork underlayment also resists mould and mildew, so it helps keep COREtec healthy enough for any home setting.
