Top 3 Benefits of COREtec Waterproof Flooring

Natural hardwood floors are, without a doubt, one of the most popular, sought after floor coverings out there. They're durable, timelessly chic, and lend an air of elegance to any home. However, there are some drawbacks that come with them, such as susceptibility to moisture and temperature changes that can make them a less than desirable option for some homes.

Luckily, the modern flooring industry has cooked up a few amazing alternative materials that can mimic the look and feel of real hardwood, without all the problems that can sometimes come with it. One of the most popular options among these new materials is COREtec waterproof flooring. Let's have a quick look at what makes this option so great.

1. Resistance to Moisture and Mildew

Even to the trained eye, COREtec waterproof flooring looks just like natural hardwood. However, it is actually a form of Luxury Vinyl Flooring and is constructed with a layered design that offers a number of extremely desirable advantages.

The top layer acts as a durable protector. It is resistant to scratching, gouging, and water. The waterproof core makes it resistant to the expansion and contraction that natural hardwood has problems with. Finally, the underlayment is made of cork that is naturally resistant to mold and mildew that can cause serious health problems.

2. Temperature and Sound Insulation

There is another added benefit to that cork layer, however. In addition to its resistance to mildew and mold; cork offers exceptional insulation for both sound and heat. This is great for homes with "heavy steppers", or for use in upstairs rooms to help cut the noise.

It is also a great insulator temperature-wise. It'll help keep you cool in the summer and toasty warm in the winter. Not too shabby!

3. Variety of Style

All COREtec waterproof flooring offers the same practical benefits, regardless of style. But there is a huge selection of styles available to satisfy even the pickiest buyer. Whether you're looking for oak, maple, or even exotic wood species, there is bound to be an option that suits your tastes. There is even a wide range of colors available for each species, so you're covered no matter what you're looking for.
