If these are used in a basement and there is a water problem, can they be taken up and put back down?
Our Coretec Plus 18" vinyl tiles are water resistant can handle water on them and over them. These vinyl tiles have actually been submerged in a pool for 6 months with no damage to them. They performed and looked just like they had just been taken out of the box.

Hi - Can Coretec plank floors be steam cleaned without harming them? Thank you.
You can use a steam cleaner on occasion but it is best to lightly damp mop with well wrung mop.
can these vinyl plank tiles be used on an outdoor screen porch floor?a
This flooring is not approved for outdoor use.
Can this flooring be installed on an uneven cement floor?
Coretec can be installed over minor subfloor imperfections, however, the more level, the better. Please see the Coretec installation PDF for further information.
Can this be used in a home that is not climate controlled all year round?
COREtec Plus is stable between 32 and 140 degrees. You can glue down the COREtec Plus if the temperatures are going to be below the 32 mark.
Can you install cabinets, island, appliances on top of this floor?
Yes you can, it is recommended that you glue those areas down.
Do you need a moisture barrier under this product?
As an extra precaution, we recommend 6mm plastic. However, if you choose not to use a moisture barrier, with will not void your warranty.
Can I put an additional underlayment?
Adding any additional cushioning will void the warranty. If you have a wooden subfloor, you can add a layer of plywood to raise it up. Over concrete it gets a bit more complex, but it would need to be something rigid, like a layer of cement on top or a cement board.
Can this floor be installed over existing vinyl sheet goods
Douglas Forbes
COREtec products can be installed over over any subfloor so long as it's level and clean. Vinyl sheet would be no problem.
can this be installed over MDF subfloor? We want to install in our kitchen. Also our refrigerator is quite heavy will this floor hold up and should I buy something to put under the wheels of our refrigerator to make it move out more smoothly? If so, do you know of any type product for that?
While it is unlike that the COREtec floor will dent under weight, we do recommend using felt furniture pads to protect your floors from damage often caused by scratching of furniture. Don't push or pull items across the floor. If possible, use an air sled or even a dolly to move heavy items. You can also place plywood sheets down first and move the object over the plywood sheets. It is recommended that you glue those down areas where heavy appliances will sit on top of the flooring. Please see installation PDF for further information.
I have ceramic tile in bathroom can I install this on top of it?
Yes, COREtec can be installed over existing tile floors.
Is there an IIC rating for this product? My condo requires a certain number. Is it advisable to use an underlayment?
Mark Steven Hall
ASTM E492-09 Impact Sound Conduction: IIC 62 db. The manufacturer does not recommend to use additional underlayment.
what is the Gloss level on the 18" Coretec Plus vinyl tiles?
The floor is a low gloss level.
What type glue is recommended and will this withstand a 350 pound power chair with a 130 lb person in it?
These products are approved for a floating installation. No glue is necessary when installing.
