Intro to COREtec & WPC


Versatile. Beautiful. Distinctive. With its wide range of materials and colors, WPC offers endless possibilities for creating your vision for a room. In addition to its variety of decorative design options, WPC is very durable and easy to maintain and, most significantly WATERPROOF.


WPC officially stands for Wood-Plastic Composite because that is what it core is made from. However WPC is often said to stand for WaterProof Core which is also an accurate description of the product.


There are a variety of differnt visuals including several wood and tile paterns. Each offer their own unique characteristics and all of them look incredibly realistic. This helps create floors that are elegant and distinctive. You really have to see it to believe how fantastic and realistic they look.


WPC is the perfect choice for places where moisture is an issue, such as kitchens and bathrooms, but it also a good choice for just about any area of your home. WPC provides the look of real wood or ceramic tile at a fraction of the cost.


Many people who end up choosing WPC originally come in the store looking for ceramic tile or harwood. But when we show them how good these WPC floors look and how much less expensive they are to install than hardwood or ceramic tile, many people end up choosing WPC.


WPC is the newest, hottest flooring product on the market today. Just a few short years ago it didn't even exist, and now it is one of the best-selling products in the flooring industry.




The History of WPC

The first WPC product was made by US Floors and they called it COREtec. When they introduced it to the flooring market it took off like wildfire. Overnight US Floors sales increased by 500%.


Clearly US Floors stuck gold with COREtec and they have never looked back. Since then they have added COREtec Plus, COREtec Plus XL Extra Long Planks, COREtec Plus HD (Embossed in Register) and COREtec Plus Design which are products with even better and more realistic looks and higher definition visuals.


With the success US Floors had with COREtec, just about every other flooring manufacturer came out with their own version of WPC. Today there are over 30 different flooring manufacturers each making their own version of WPC. Just about all of these look fantastic. You owe it to yourself to come in and see them for yourself. You are sure to be impressed with this new and amazing poduct which is sweeping the flooring industry.
