Today, you’ll be learning about an incredible solution for your home called COREtec Flooring. This month, as tsunami has been upon our city. We have heard from customer after customer that their floors are damaged beyond repair, and they don’t know what to replace it with. Knowing the best product for your home can be difficult, so we’re here to help you every step of the way.
Pop Quiz! Which of the following choices offers the best solution to all of your flooring needs?
A. Traditional Carpet
B. Good Ol’ Hardwood
C. A Luxury Engineered Vinyl Tile
If you chose C, you were correct! LVT flooring covers all the bases, and only fails if you’re in need of a soft cushion to put your feet on up in the morning – but that’s why they make rugs!
COREtec Flooring was developed and engineered by USFloors and we at Builders Surplus are happy to offer it to you in both of our Louisville and Newport, Kentucky locations. It really is the answer to all of your flooring needs! Seriously. Your flooring is a very important choice when you’re remodeling any room in your home. Do you live in an area prone to flooding? What kind of abuse is the floor going to be put up against? Is it a high-traffic area in the home? Are heavy objects moved across the area?

COREtec Flooring Options:

With over 50 colors and 5 styles to choose from, imitating both tile and wood floors, you’re sure to find a style to fit any room in your house. Style is just an added benefit when it’s easy to care for and maintain your floors.
COREtec Plus comes in two sizes a 5″ inch and 7″ inch wide planks.
COREtec Plus Tile is slightly different in the looks that it offers as it mimics the looks of stone, marble, slate, travertine, and stamped concrete. It also comes in two sizes: 12″x24″ and 18.5″x24.”
COREtec Plus XL is simply a bigger, longer version of the COREtec Plus series. The planks are a whopping 9″ inches wide and 6′ feet long.
Finally there’s COREtec One, the original in the COREtec line of products. They’re similar to the 5″ inch wide COREtec Plus, the only difference being that unlike the rest of the COREtec products COREtec One does not have a cork backing.
The similarity between all of these choices is the amazing value that comes along with it! All of the COREtec flooring lines offer residential, petproof, and waterproof limited lifetime warranties and a 10 year warranty for medium commercial businesses! With the exception of the COREtec One line they all have a cork backing improving sound insulation. All of the COREtec products are waterproof, and are dimensionally stable – meaning that your new floor won’t swell, expand, or contract. It also won’t telegraph or show any imperfections coming from the surface you’ll be installing your new COREtec flooring on.
Speaking of installation – Installing any COREtec floor is very simple – any room can be done in a just a few hours. Because the floor doesn’t have to be acclimated to your home it can be installed right away and with it’s micro-beveled edges and ends it’s as simple as sliding and locking the boards into place! There’s no messy glue to mess around with.
With my own flooring remodel coming up I am definitely putting COREtec at the top of my list! The product looks beautiful, it’s easy to install and maintain, and at that price point it’s value is just exponential in my eyes. The only trouble I’m going to have with it is deciding on which style I’m going to pick!
