COREtec luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring successfully mimics the look of hardwood floors. However, unlike hardwood, our luxury vinyl flooring planks are comfortable to walk on, waterproof and durable. COREtec LVP flooring is beautiful, simple to install and easy to care for, making it the perfect alternative to hardwood floors.

3 Reasons COREtec LVP Flooring is the Perfect Alternative to Hardwood

1. Hardwood Floors are Sensitive to Water, Spills and Moisture

Our LVP flooring is waterproof, so if you have a spill, your flooring will not warp, crack or swell.

Luxury vinyl plank flooring is also easy to clean, which makes it perfect for those busy areas of your home where spills and pet accidents are most likely to occur.

How to clean a spill:

If an accident or spill is present, you can quickly dab it away. After removing the spill, dab the area with a damp, soft white cloth or paper towel. Blot the area dry with a new white cloth or paper towel.

Since our luxury vinyl plank flooring is waterproof, it is also ideal for rooms with high humidity (e.g., bathrooms and laundry rooms).

2. COREtec LVP Flooring is Quieter, Warmer and More Comfortable Than Hardwood

ALL the styles in our Originals collection of luxury vinyl plank flooring are warmer, more comfortable and quieter than hardwood. However, if you choose a COREtec Originals LVP flooring style that features our pre-attached Soft Step underlayment, your flooring will be even quieter and warmer, as these styles rate 70% better for sound absorption and are 40% warmer than other LVP flooring options.

The sound absorption quality of our Originals LVP flooring reduces echoes and the sounds made while walking. This feature means that you can enjoy a conversation with a friend or watch a movie, even if you have a house full of little ones who are pitter-pattering about.

In addition, the layered composition of our vinyl flooring helps it maintain a consistent temperature all year long. This feature means that our floors are more comfortable to lay down on, sit on or even dance on than traditional hardwood.

3. Hardwood Floors are More Susceptible to Stains Than Our LVP Flooring

The finishes on our luxury vinyl flooring planks are more resistant to stains than hardwood floors. In addition, COREtec LVP flooring is easy to care for and stays beautiful in even the highest-traffic areas of your home. 

Furthermore, by investing in luxury vinyl plank flooring, your floors will remain beautiful for years to come, which will help maintain the value of your home.
