    I am looking for COREtec (or maybe Armstrong) LVP products, I'd like to buy them online. Which website that sells COREtec LVP at reasonable or low prices? Do you have any experience in ordering online?

    Thanks

    I just install. It's a rare day when I hear of people ordering something like those online. If the wrong color or product is sent, or there is freight damage a local company takes care of it all. If they drop it off and you find damage later, you have to file a claim and arrange to return the box/boxes.
    Ask whoever you buy the product from for samples. Don't use local retailers as shopping libraries. Some local architects used to come in and browse a lot but never buy anything. They looked and handled the items then ordered from larger retailer. They finally just bought their own sample books. Guilt was getting to them. Check online prices including shipping and compare them with local retailers.

    I haven't installed the Armstrong yet but every other in the world. I read Armstrong is made in USA!
    Buying online can be a problem, many manufacturers won't warranty their products if bought online.

    Yes, I am aware that Armstrong floors are made in USA. I believe that COREtec floors are made in USA (please correct me if I'm wrong). I guess I will have to find a local flooring retailer to order Armstrong/COREtec LVP. Home Depot and Lowe's don't carry these brands.

    Some of Coretec is made in china, even though USFloors is the manufacturer.

    "COREtec is currently manufactured in China. USFloors will continue to rely on its trade partners there, as the Ringgold manufacturing facility is not capable of producing at a high enough level to meet current demands or future growth projections, Stepp said."

    Try a local Prosource Flooring Supply. They are nation wide. You can use my name if they give you a hassle as they are mostly wholesale to flooring contractors, designers and builders, just PM me.
