4 Coretec Flooring Features and Benefits

Posted March 31, 2020

COREtec is a revolutionary vinyl flooring product that offers exceptional strength, durability and stability. As a result, this flooring option is an ideal solution for families of all sizes. In fact, COREtec is 100% pet-proof, kid-proof and waterproof. Not many other flooring types can say the same!

If you are considering a COREtec luxury vinyl flooring installation, here are four features and benefits to consider.

1. No additional underlayment required.

Underlayment is required for most floors, adding time and money onto flooring projects. This is not the case with COREtec. The vinyl flooring construction consists of four layers, including an cork underlayment. Not only does this save time and money, but also you get superior sound insulation and resistance to mold and mildew. Plus, the cork covers subfloor imperfections for a smooth transition.

2. Acclimation is not necessary.

The purpose of acclimation is to ensure the flooring does not expand and contract, causing cupping. Most floors need to acclimate to their environment before they can be installed. COREtec is different. Once delivered to your home, flooring installation can begin. COREtec is highly stable and will not expand and contract under normal conditions.

3. Patented construction that includes four layers.

COREtec flooring has a patented construction that includes four layers:

  1. Wear layer. The top layer is a .5mm/20 mil wear layer coating that protects against stains and normal wear and tear.
  2. Luxury vinyl top layer. The next layer is comprised of a luxury vinyl material that is durable against chips, dents and scratches.
  3. COREtec Core structure. The third layer offers a stable, waterproof core for strength and stability.
  4. Attached cork underlayment. The last layer is an cork underlayment that protects against mold and absorbs sound.

4. Suitable for wet areas like bathrooms, mud rooms and laundry rooms.

Because COREtec flooring is waterproof - not just water resistant - it is an ideal choice for wet areas like bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. The flooring features an acrylic coating for stain resistance and easy cleaning. Simply wipe up spills with a towel - that’s it! COREtec is safe from water, pets and kids.


COREtec has an amazing selection of luxury vinyl flooring, including wide planks, natural stone tiles and high-resolution images. When these good looks are combined with strength, durability and versatility, you have a perfect floor on your hands!
