Installing Waterproof COREtec Vinyl Plank LVT Flooring in Our DC Metro Maryland Carpet One Flooring Store

I love making people’s homes and offices look better with new floors.
After over 20 years it still hasn’t gotten old.
But… I REALLY love doing work in my own showroom.
Here are some pictures of a recent installation of COREtec waterproof flooring in a section of our showroom in Beltsville, Maryland, just outside Silver Spring. I chose to replace the oldest section of showroom flooring with multiple areas of different flooring types, most of which had been discontinued.
We sell and install thousands of square feet of waterproof LVT flooring every month and it only made sense to put some on the floor.
Hope you like it!

Here’s the finished project:

And here are some in-progress shots of what it took to install this awesome floor. Note – preparing the area took a crew of 4 one entire day. Prep is the most important, yet unseen, part of an installation.

The entire floor had to be skim coated with a cementitious underlayment prior to installing the plank flooring. Without the skim coating, the old adhesive would make a “popping” noise every once in awhile… and it would drive me nuts!

Here’s a drawing showing which styles we installed in this phase. We will installing another 700 square feet soon!
