Resource Center

We know most folks don’t buy floors very often - especially if they’re long-lasting COREtec floors. So we put together this handy resource guide that keeps all the information, tips and tools you need in one handy place. Just scroll down or click a link to learn more.

Our patented core structure makes COREtec the original 100% waterproof, kidproof, petproof flooring by providing more rigidity, stability and comfort than glue down LVT, solid locking LVT, or laminate flooring.

Start with the basic square footage of your room(s) by multiplying length times width (LxW). Don’t try to be too precise – round up to the next foot. Then add in closets. We know it’s tempting to leave the old flooring in the closet, but the transition won’t look right. Trust us, you’ll be glad you put in the little extra effort every time you open your closet door.

How many square feet are in a box? Since our collections are different sizes and shapes, the amount of square feet in each carton varies. Here’s the breakdown.

  • COREtec Plus Design: 20.97 sf/box

Why factor in wiggle room? It’s always better to have a little extra than not enough. We recommend purchasing 10% more flooring than your square footage calls for, mostly as insurance against mistakes during installation. It’s also nice to have a little extra just in case you manage to damage the floor at some point.
