He could only hear it slightly in a few places that were unlevel, but they were still within tolerance. Thanks. Less than 6 months later there was some cupping. It adds a small bit of cushion and warmth. Wow, about to install Cortec One. 2-She is also a digger which resulted in muddy paws occasionally and more often, simply wet feet. Our vet’s office remodeled and got Coretec pro plus in a darker color and it looks great. We had our street done last week. Safe if covered, it’s inert unless disturbed by scraping it up, which means expensive removal costs for safety. I have 2 very busy grandkids and one english bulldog. Just a very good product. We are having the same problem with our COREtec floors. We got water in our basement and the planks literally crumbled when we pulled them up. I will continue to find a solution. ( We use the Bona Stone, Tile and Laminate floor cleaner ) Thanks. No pets and just the two of us and a grandson before and after school. After I continued to research I came across COREtec again. Other issues that are often raised with wood floors are, first that they are noisy and conduct sound around the home, and second, that it can be hard on the limbs to spend a lot of time walking on hardwood. I’m looking at Coretec Pro Plus and was wanting color recommendations? Flooring company came back out and now it looks like the wear layer isn’t there and the color layer is dusting off. We have the CL installed too (Tonga). Hi. Thank you! We are thinking the Venado Oak in Coretec Plus XL-E. Did you get the Venado?? Funny you say this, since COREtec is the company that invented LVP. Water damage is unlikely, I live in a dryer part of Texas with a house that will never flood. It should be dried thoroughly, but it should not warp. It still gaps but I just stopped looking at it. They give Noble Oak an 8 out of 10 (1 being no repeat, 10 being lots of repeats) and they were really only able to identify 5 different patterns to choose between. Love it! Each style of COREtec Plus vinyl planks features a 20 mil wear layer that protects your floors even in high traffic or commercial areas. Would you recommend a sealer on the core tec plus. My questions are is this flooring totally water proof from urine, how well will it hold up under humid conditions, we don’t like the a/c to be on all the time even in the summer and which flooring would look best in rooms with light colored walls and dark furniture? Also, my husband installed the floor TWICE as it gapped so much between planks. I took quite a long time to pick out our flooring and we are very happy that we settled with the Cortec product. False advertisingg and the person who is the floor critic obviously doesn’t have this flooring. This is the clear top layer that protects the plank underneath. Also was planning on installing myself, has anyone else done that and how did it go using long planks vs the traditional 4′ planks? You mention other products looking as good as the Coretec HD line. Installed about 2 years ago. It looks beautiful and I’m really much happier with it than when I had hardwood floors throughout my other home. We will look at its features and styles, how much it costs and where to buy it, plus everything related to the installation, maintenance, and warranty consideration(s). I’d love to get your opinion on the texture/grooving. I spent over $1000 to have a 300 s/f area done and a year and a half later just couldn’t take it any more. If you are somewhat handy, you can even do it yourself and save even more money on your flooring project. I would love to hear from anyone who has any of these as to what you think of them. Sometimes reviews just cancel each other out. With these 11 different ranges the COREtec Plus collection provides a HUGE choice of styles and sizes in both in wood look planks and stone look tiles, including some super wide and extra long planks at 21” x 180”. Any chance the Coretec Plus floor could be used in a garage? We have one large dog and 3 cats and lots of guests and family. The three broad lines are Pro Galaxy, Pro Plus and Pro Plus Enhanced. My grandkids walk and crawl on it and they get covered with a black film-like greasy dirt. It looked great! Our first call to the rep we were told there would be a $1200 restocking fee, which we feel is unfair considering the problem is with the product and it was not apparent on their provided sample. Plank dimensions are 6” x 48”and the range comes in 12 nicely varied colorways. Even the piece that was never installed and cleaned was doing it. Mannington is the most scratch proof, they have a video where they take a quarter and scratch a competitor floor and then theirs and it does not scratch. If you want the wood look with 100% waterproof for the floor and the subfloor, then you need to install wood-look tile.
