THE NEWEST FLOORING TREND: CORETEC FLOORING

Keep Up to Date with California’s Best Flooring Company

When it comes to flooring options, there are a lot of things to consider. Do you go for something really durable? Cost-effective? Easy to install? Eco-friendly? Beautiful? Usually, you have to pick and choose your top flooring priorities, but a new product makes it possible to have it all. We like to think of ourselves as the best flooring company from Roseville to Elk Grove, so of course we stay up to date on the latest flooring trends. Let us tell you about a flooring option that everybody is raving about: COREtec Plus.

WHAT IS CORETEC PLUS?

You wouldn’t know it from the picture above, but COREtec is actually vinyl plank. Now before you dismiss it out of hand, you should know that this is not your ordinary type of vinyl. The engineered planks have a cork underlay and four-sided enhanced micro-beveled edges and ends, which is a fancy way of saying they’re engineered to look just like hardwood flooring. The core is made out of recycled wood, bamboo dust, limestone and virgin PVC.

WHAT MAKES IT SO GREAT?

Let’s look back at those flooring options we mentioned at the beginning and see how COREtec holds up.

  • Durability: Vinyl is known for being quite resilient, and COREtec is no exception (that’s why it comes with a limited lifetime warranty). It’s great for wet areas because it won’t swell when exposed to water the way that hardwood would. The cork underlay is also naturally resistant to mold and mildew and helps with sound insulation.
  • Cost: COREtec is going to be far less expensive than hardwood, so it’s a great budget-friendly flooring choice. It is typically pricier than laminate.
  • Installation: COREtec used to have a drop & lock installation process, but in recent years, they’ve transitioned to an angle/tap process, which is entirely glueless. Once you’ve prepped the subfloor and decided on a nice arrangement of planks, you just add one plank to another at an angle, then tap into place. Install it yourself or have our team handle it for you!
  • Eco-friendly: COREtec products are GREENGUARD Gold certified, which means they met rigorous standards for EPA emissions tests. They also use recycled materials.
  • Beauty: They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I don’t think you’d find many people who don’t like the appearance of COREtec. It really does look just like hardwood.

This flooring option is rapidly growing in popularity for homes throughout California. If you’d like to see COREtec in person, visit one of our showrooms near you. You’ll get to see firsthand why RCO Home Improvement is the best flooring company around.

WHY SHOULD I BUY NYLON CARPET VS. ALTERNATIVE FIBERS?

Find the Carpet Solution that’s Right for Your California Home

Let’s talk carpet fibers. It’s not usually something you would even think to think about, but if you’re considering a carpet flooring installation in your Roseville area home, it’s a smart idea to know about the different options.

The most popular carpet fiber in the U.S. is nylon, a man-made material that was originally designed as a substitute for silk. The fiber didn’t quite catch on as an alternative for silk dresses, but it did stand out as a great option for carpet and rugs.

So is nylon the no-brainer choice for your next carpet purchase? Perhaps, but there are definitely benefits to both nylon and alternative fibers. So let’s dig deeper into what those benefits are…

Reasons to Love Nylon

Durability

The reason nylon never took off as a silk substitute is that it’s hard. The stiff material is inherently resistant to damage, so everyday wear and tear won’t have as much of an effect as it would on alternative fibers.

Soil Resistance

Dirt is every carpet’s enemy, but nylon has a better defense against it than most carpet fibers. Everyday soiling is less likely to penetrate the fibers and cause permanent stains. It’s not completely soil-proof like laminate or luxury vinyl planks would be, but it’s still a good choice.

Earth-friendly Colors

It’s important to choose carpet that complements the look and feel of your home. So if your interior design palette has a lot of natural tones and textures, you’re far better off with nylon than with a carpet fiber like polyester. That’s because polyesters typically have a shiny, artificial look and feel.

Reasons to Choose Alternative Fibers

Stain Resistance

The durable material of nylon keeps dirt from damaging the fiber, but it can still absorb liquids. So for areas where liquid spills might be a concern, you’ll find greater stain resistance in a material like polyester.

Eco-friendliness

If you want to avoid a man-made, petroleum-based carpet, then a natural material such as wool or sisal might make sense for your home. Another solid choice is to go for carpet made of recycled materials. These carpeting options are typically pricier and may require more ongoing care, but they have a much lower carbon footprint.

Frequent Changes

Nylon will last for years and years to come, which is great if you’re looking for a long-term carpet flooring installation. But if you like to switch it up with your home décor every few years, it may make sense to choose a cheaper material that isn’t designed to stay looking great for a decade.

Of course, there’s no denying that one of the biggest factors when choosing carpet fiber is the feel of it. The best way to find a carpet flooring option that’s right for your home is to feel the different textures for yourself!
