The Beauty of LVP

Luxury Vinyl Plank
  • Light texturing adds interest and a subtle appearance, like that of wire-brushing
  • Medium-level embossing creates character, especially following the grain pattern in species with lots of movement
  • Heavy embossing creates the look of hearty, substantial hand-scraping

Looking to update a room with LVP? The Carpet House on Main Street in Morrison, IL has excellent sales on LVP going on right now!

Stop in our showroom and check out the newest styles!

Let’s talk LVT! Let’s Talk COREtec!

COREtec is the original!

COREtec is the original floor that created the LVT category with its patented WPC core technology that was the first 100% waterproof, kidproof, petproof floor. COREtec is available in over 100 realistic wood looks, in a variety of sizes. Styling innovations such as Embossed In Register technology and enhanced bevels add to the beauty while an attached cork backing makes these floors warmer, quieter and softer underfoot. COREtec floors are GREENGUARD GOLD certified for indoor air quality and backedby a lifetime limited residential warranty.

Simple, elegant and easy to clean!

Coretec Oneplus is regularly $5.69.

Currently on sale for $ 3.99 sf.

Coretec Plus in on Sale for $4.29 sf

COREtec Plus floors are 100% waterproof, and can be installed in wet areas without swelling or warping when exposed to water. These floors do not require acclimation and can be floated over most existing hard floor surfaces or substrate without the unwanted telegraphing common in other locking or glue-down LVP products.

Coretec Plux XL is on sale for $5.79 sf

 COREtec Plus XL LVT is inert and dimensionally stable, which means it won’t change size due to heat or humidity under normal conditions and never needs expansion strips in large rooms. An attached cork underlayment results in a quieter, warmer vinyl floor that is naturally resistant to odor causing mold and mildew. COREtec Plus XL is also GREENGUARD GOLD Certified for Indoor Air Quality. That is a huge win, win!

Stop in our showroom located on historic downtown Morrison to see our selection of COREtec LVT flooring!
