Welcome Ted’s Guide to Buying the Good Stuff! At ReallyCheapFloors, we are constantly looking for products that offer a combination of great value and desirable features. COREtec Pro Plus XL Enhanced HD has all the features one can ask for, while still keeping the price under $3! We talk about COREtec as a company and manufacturer in our COREtec Blog here.
COREtec Pro Plus XL Enhanced HD features
- 73” length
- 9” wide
- 20 mil Wear Layer
- Stone Polymer Core Construction
- Cork Backing
First, this fellow is called XL for a reason. The vinyl planks are 73” long. These planks are some of the longest boards on the market. Longer is a very popular design feature, and not just with the installers! Longer boards offer a high-end look similar to real hardwood. This aesthetic is in high demand.
And they are wide, at 9”. Most LVP floors are 7” wide. Again, wider is better for installation . Wider also keeps the longer board lengths from giving your floor a “skinny” look.
This flor also features a 20 mil wear layer over an SPC, or Stone Polymer Core. The wearlayer, one of the thickest in the industry, is the clear stuff on top that determines the wear ability of your floor. Due to the superior construction, COREtec can offer a Lifetime warranty on a residential install, and even include 15 year Pet proof and Waterproof warranties. And, to thumb their nose at any wannabe competitors, they offer a 15 year warranty on heavy commercial. No one else does that on a $3 price point.
Like all COREtec floors, the XL HD includes an environmental-friendly attached cork back, which gives your vinyl plank floor the warmth and sound suppression today’s customer wants.
What are SPC Vinyl Planks?
A quick word about Stone Polymer Cores…. these cores are the hardest material used in flooring today. More stable and dent-resistant than the WPC floors that have dominated the market over the last few years, the SPC products promise the consumer a floor that will maintain not only a dent-free surface, but a stable structure that will eliminate twisting and warping, even in direct sunlight.
Now for the piece de resistance! Piece de resistance….noun….French… (especially with reference to creative work or a meal) the most important or remarkable feature.
What is Enhanced HD?
What really sets the COREtec Pro Plus XL Enhanced HD apart from the other floors on the market today is the Enhanced HD. Sadly, most floors are made with the same texture, regardless of what the visual on the floor looks like, Straight-grained Maple floors exhibit the same feel as a rustic pine. How can that be? Well, personalizing a textured surface to each board would be ridiculously expensive…. unless you are COREtec! With their enhanced HD products, not only are they adding a high-definition visual, they have also added their Registered Embossing technology.
Registered Embossing ensures the texture of the floor matches the characteristics of the floor. We like to call this ‘see a knot, feel a knot’. While this may knot….sorry, wood humor….while this may not seem like a big deal, drop into one of our stores, or order a sample, and you will see the difference. Honestly, you need to see the floor in a big piece to fully appreciate what this look means to a room.
