Do I have to install my COREtec floor myself?
Of course not. Your local COREtec retailer will be happy to provide professional installation services. And our Angle-Tap, floating installation will keep installation costs lower than many other types of flooring.
What tools will I need to install COREtec floors?
The necessities are a hammer, tapping block and a pull bar. We highly recommend using ¼ inch spacers and a crosscut power saw with a blade suitable for plastics. Other basics to have on hand include a pencil, chalk line, tape measure and 3M Scotch Blue™ 2080 Tape.
Where can COREtec floors be installed?
Our 100% waterproof planks and tiles can be installed in any room of your home, from basement to top floor. COREtec is an interior product and must be stored/installed in a temperature-controlled interior environment, maintained between 55 and 85 degrees F (13°- 29°C).
Can COREtec floors be installed over radiant heat?
Yes. Please see the installation manual for detailed instructions and considerations.
Can I install COREtec floors outdoors?
No. Well, technically you could. But you could also cover your deck in suede. Installing COREtec outdoors will negate any product warranty.
Do I need to leave expansion space?
Yes. While COREtec is a very dimensionally stable product, it can experience some contraction and expansion with temperature fluctuations. The same can be said for your home's walls or any adjacent flooring. That’s why we require leaving ¼ inch space next to walls and adjoining flooring to allow for the contraction and expansion that a homes construction materials experience.
