COREtec Waterproof Flooring is a Design That Solves a Complex Problem

One of the great debates in design (be it interior or fashion) has always been about the best way to combine form + function.

Scott Robinson, a graphic designer and chair of San Diego?s Design Forward Alliance, said it best when he told the San Diego Union Tribune that ?Design is not likely what you expect it to be? and ?Design today is about solving complex problems.? This was included in an article about the hopes of San Diego becoming a ?Design World Capital by 2028: by Roger Showley.

Flooring is a good example because, with San Diego?s high moisture level climate, someone might long for hardwood floors, but also worries about heat and humidity. That could hold them back.

The answer lies in a specialty/hybrid product like COREtec waterproof flooring, available at Metro Flooring in San Diego.

COREtec waterproof flooring is a unique combination of vinyl with a wood core. That means you?ve got the form because you have the beauty, elegance, patterns, colors, undertones, and species of hardwood. It comes in planks, just like hardwood flooring, but you can also get it in tile form.

You also have the function: Unlike laminate, which does look remarkably similar to natural wood, stone and tile, COREtec waterproof flooring is 100 percent waterproof. Laminate will warp when exposed to excess water but COREtec waterproof flooring will not. Unlike hardwood, COREtec waterproof flooring won?t swell when exposed to water and, in fact, doesn?t need to be acclimatized first to avoid the shrinkage/expansion that can sometimes occur when hardwood tries to adjust to weather conditions.

In fact, even when it?s submerged in water, the COREtec waterproof flooring can simply be removed, dried out, and then re-installed. The cork underlayment of this flooring acts as a natural antimicrobial so, in addition to making the surface softer, quieter, and warmer than standard wood floors.

Metro Flooring is located right next to the Pyramid in San Diego. The company carries a large inventory of carpet, hardwood, tile, luxury vinyl, vinyl flooring, stone, and laminate.
