COREtec Waterproof Flooring is Truly Waterproof!

COREtec Waterproof Flooring is Truly Waterproof!

Here at Metro Flooring in San Diego, we are often asked if COREtec waterproof flooring is really waterproof? The answer is yes! Unlike many systems that are only water-resistant, COREtec is truly waterproof. Here are a few more facts about this remarkable luxury vinyl flooring system that you may find interesting.

There are three main reasons why COREtec is waterproof: Materials used, construction, and installation.

It all begins with the materials that are used to create these flooring systems. COREtec uses a patented construction process for its core structure. These materials are made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC.

During the construction process, the core layer is created and the edges of the product are made to provide a water-tight seal when installed. And, when the flooring is properly installed, these water-tight edges keep water from seeping through to the sub-floor, making COREtec systems 100 percent waterproof.

Because these systems are so efficient, they can be installed in all types of wet areas such as laundry rooms, mud rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms, to name a few. These systems are inert and stable, and that means that they will not swell or expand when exposed to water. They are perfect for large rooms, because there is no need for expansion strips.

If you are wondering if COREtec waterproof flooring is only utilitarian, and, therefore, unattractive, the answer is not at all. In fact, these are some of the most attractive luxury vinyl floors that you will find anywhere. Available in plank or tile, they are incredibly realistic looking, and they have no outward appearance of being waterproof.

It is actually difficult to describe how beautiful these flooring systems truly are, and so the best way to appreciate what they have to offer, is to see them in person. If you come by Metro Flooring in San Diego, we will be happy to show you a selection of these wonderful flooring systems and answer any questions that you may have while you are here.
