Engineered Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

If you visited the HomeShowExpo last summer, you may or may not have noticed the use of luxury vinyl plank used it certain areas of the homes. Being an entirely new category of flooring called Engineered Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, or LVP for short, these planks are by far the most durable on the market today. Now, before you decide it’s not for you, let us tell you what we love about COREtec’s LVP.
  • Lifetime Residential Wear Warranty
  • Lifetime Structure Warranty
  • Lifetime Water proof Warranty
  • Lifetime Pet proof Warranty


This means you can install COREtec LVP in wet areas such as bathrooms and laundry areas and never have to worry about it swelling when exposed to water. Two coats of UV acrylic finish provide superior stain resistance and cleanability. This product is great for those who have pets and children. A 20 millimeter commercial rated wear layer insures your floor will be protected from dents and scratches.
  • Stable – will not expand or contract
  • Waterproof core, which naturally resists mold & mildew


Enjoy the look of wood floors with the comfort of cork. COREtec LVP is quieter and warmer than ordinary LVP floors, and require no additional underlayment. Attached cork underlayment provides:
  • Additional cushion for muscles & joints
  • Added sound insualtion


COREtec LVP isn’t your stereotypical vinyl-looking floor. We’ve had seasoned realtors in disbelief that the floor in their listing house wasn’t actual wood flooring. The rigid plank technology of COREtec eliminates ripples and waves seen in other brands. A large variety of colors and styles are available from white-washed Pine to wire brushed Oak with gray tones to dark, rich Walnuts.
  • Wider variety of wood color options than traditional wood floors
  • Gives any space an updated look

We had an exceptional experience building with Kimberley Development Corporation. Bill, Jenna, and the rest of the staff were very accommodating and responsive. Their quality of craftsmanship is what sets them apart. Its obvious why Kimberley Development is considered the best builder in central Iowa.
