Is COREtec Waterproof Flooring a Good Investment?

At Metro Flooring in San Diego, we often hear the question: Is COREtec waterproof flooring a good investment? The general answer is, yes. But, why is this flooring system a good investment? What makes it so special? And who benefits most from it? Let's take a look at these questions and the answers to them:

To answer any of these questions, we must first establish the fact that COREtec waterproof flooring is truly waterproof. It is not water ?resistant?, but rather water ?proof?; there is a difference.

The reason these systems are waterproof can be found in how they are constructed. The top layer, also called the wear layer, is made to take a lot of abuse. This layer can handle heavy foot traffic with ease, and resists gouges, scratches, and denting. The next layer is the made of luxury vinyl and represents either hardwood or natural stone. It gives these systems the ?authentic? look that consumers want. And lastly, the core structure is what makes these systems waterproof. But, this core also adds stability elements that will not expand or contract.

Therefore, if you need a flooring system that can handle a variety of conditions, then COREtec waterproof flooring is certainly a good investment. The main concern that COREtec waterproof flooring solves is that any room or space can be ruined if large amounts of water get onto those floors. Water not only ruins the upper flooring (carpet, hardwood, etc), but it also ruins the sub-flooring, in most cases. Even small amounts of water can cause mold and mildew on the sub-flooring once it seeps down.

We would imagine that spaces such as kitchens, laundry rooms, restaurants, and any other space that might be at risk of water damage would benefit from waterproof flooring. And it does!
