If you’ve heard about luxury vinyl flooring, chances are you’ve also heard about COREtec.
For those of you who are familiar with luxury vinyl and COREtec, but not necessarily what they are or why they’re important, here is a little background information.
What is Luxury Vinyl?
Vinyl plank flooring, popularly known as luxury vinyl (or LVP), is a cost-effective flooring choice with some amazing benefits. These floors are highly durable, give realistic visuals of hardwood and stone floors, and most importantly, are waterproof.
While LVP is a great option for flooring, and can be installed practically anywhere in your home, there are a few things to keep in mind when considering to purchase it.

What is COREtec? Why Does it Matter?
From their humble beginning operating out of their founder’s spare bedroom, to now, COREtec has been one of the leading innovators of modern vinyl flooring.
COREtec has a patented construction that makes it highly durable when faced with high traffic or commercial areas. A lot of work has also been put into this product to make it pleasing to the eye, with both wood and stone looks available. COREtec vinyl has the added bonus of being easy to clean and maintain.
Talking further about durability, COREtec has advantage over engineered hardwood. First and foremost, engineered hardwood is not waterproof, and the cost of replacing damaged wood is far greater than a luxury vinyl. The wear layer on top of vinyl is also more scratch resistant than hardwood
