Pictures of SuperCore SPC Flooring?

We are considering putting the Kryptonite Supercore flooring in our home. The first step will be the first floor over concrete (living room, master bedroom and bath, kitchen, formal dining, and laundry). It is around 1700 square feet. We also have stairs and and upstairs to do at a later date.


I have samples of the flooring, but would love to see it installed. It's difficult to tell how the patterns work on the sample. Thanks.

    I just had 1250 sq ft of SuperCore Krypton installed in my house that I am getting ready to sell. I love this flooring. It’s beautiful, and the installers were very impressed with it.

    I am having a new home built soon and plan to have either Krypton or Sol as my new flooring.

    We are laying Supercore in two large rooms, with a small hallway between them (laundry on one side, bathroom on the other. I'm worried that by the time we get to the farthest edge the flooring might not be straight. How do you make sure it is when flooring over a large span.

    WPC or SPC vinyl plank flooring?

    Haute shoppe Studio, is the Merino Oak an SPC? Do you remember what the mill layer is? I almost signed my contract for Republic SPC today in Countryside Eastern Cottonwood after having a sample of it in my home for a week. But I changed my mind today after seeing pics of it installed on Instagram. I dont like all the darker variations that almost look like stripes when it’s laid out. I also like the Coretec products but I dont know if they make an SPC.

    PVC free SPC flooring

    Q

    When talking about "cheap vinyl" we are talking about anything LESS than $3/sf. When we talk about THIN vinyl planks we discuss anything that is LESS than 7mm thick. Virgin vinyl is the most stable product we have. It is to be used for flooring. As much as 'recycled content' sounds nice, it is notorious for delamination, shrinkage, warping, etc. And most vinyl comes out of China. It is almost impossible to avoid. So long as it has the CARB II requirements you are fine. And yes, "usually" means during daily use. In a fire, most of us do not stand around inhaling the chemicals in our flooring. We run like the dickens to get out of the house. And in a house fire, the vinyl is one of THOUSANDS of products that give off chemicals. If you are concerned about chemicals, off-gassing and release of chemicals during I fire, I highly recommend a site finished waxed hardwood or porcelain tile. Man-made products may not be for you. And please be aware of vinyl's LONG history of instability in direct sunlight/heat. Please assess your windows for UV blockage. A low-priced vinyl (anything less than $3/sf) is going to have issues with discolouration, warpage and shrinkage when exposed to pools of sunlight. So long as your windows have 70% (or more) of UV blockage, you should be fine. Anything less and you risk a problematic floor.

    All of the floor samples look almost identical in color, except the last one is a bit darker. I don't think you could go wrong with any of them! #3 is probably my favorite because it has less grain.

    I'm thinking of installing Supercore.. Will the product install throughout our entire house without transition strips? Also, how do I keep it close to tubs or showers without it contracting or moving away from the tubs or showers?

  • seekingflooring
    2 years ago

    Supercore is great for installing throughout the home without transitions. You have to maintain a 1/4" expansion against all walls and objects like tubs, toilets, etc. The expansion is for the movement of everything in your home, the floor itself virtually doesn't move at all. Check out the install guide for more in depth preparation for your project. https://www.weshipfloors.com/supercore-installation-instructions

    How to clean Supercore floors? i see that question a lot,.... I was advised to use warm water with a little vinegar for everyday cleaning. It is tough enough to handle a steamer as well for deep cleaning. If you want to buy something off the shelf, just focus on products approved for vinyl floor care.

  • Jamie Pace

    I use Bona and a microfiber mop. It works great on the SuperCore.

    It states on the back that it’s also for vinyl floors.

    Not yet! Since we had the Covid-19 stay-at-home order, I postponed the project. I have been painting closets, washing walls in preparation for painting and organizing instead. I have the lovely flooring in my garage and it is really beautiful. I'm excited to get it installed but I have some more painting to do first! Thanks for asking, I'll be sure to post here as soon as the flooring is installed.

  • Mark

    Excited for you! I have a sample but as you know it's really hard to tell how they flooring looks based off that little 5"x7" sample. How would you describe the color of the full planks and how much variation is there between them? Is the gray really pronounced. I'm 90% sure French Oak will be the color I go with but I'll probably order a sample box to get a full feel and solidify my decision.

    We installed SuperCore in our new custom build throughout the whole house. I love it, although I'm struggling with how to clean it. Swiffer wet jet, hardwood floor cleaner with mop and bucket hasn't cleaned it well. I still have water drop spots, random shoe and foot prints, even with plenty of elbow grease. I was reading that LVP cannot use steam, so I'm still leary to use steam on my SuperCore. I'll try warm water and vinegar tonight.

  • Janet Jenkins

    Hi Stacy, what color flooring did you get? Please keep us posted on your cleaning efforts./methods. The lady at WeShipFloors said Bona works well, she didn't give me a specific type. I have the SuperCore waiting to be installed after we finish painting. I'm the world's slowest ever.

    I have not installed my flooring yet. My father passed away last month, I have flown to Los Angeles 4 times in the past 6 months. Now I'm back in Atlanta, I have to finish painting some rooms, get the contractors in to do their thing and then finally I will get the flooring installed. This year has not gone anything like I planned. But the minute I get those floors installed, I'm running to this thread!! Thanks for asking!!

  • kjv3

    I’m so sorry to hear about your father. I did not mean to put you on the spot... I agree it’s been crazy these past six months. I am thankful to be working but needed something to keep me distracted from “life”. I decided to jump in with both feet and renovate my home. I chose Supercore French Oak about 1100 sq ft. I too need to chose paint color. The floors will be here Monday. Im sure your home will turn out beautifully as well. I pray all works out for you and your family during this difficult time.

    We installed Krypton over a year ago and love it! We are actually selling our house so now I'm having an internal battle if I want to use the same color in the next house or do something a bit cleaner like oyster. Either way my family of 6 along with 3 dogs have thrown everything at this floor with no issues. Well except that one time I forgot to turn off the steam mop and it warped a few planks 😬 my bad. I love how the lighting can change the look so much yet it's so universal.





  • Stacy Edwards

    Gina, what do you use to clean it with? I have super core and can never get spots

  • recordaras
    last year

    I use a flat microfiber mop and warm water, sometimes with a tiny spritz of a mild all purpose cleaner. We have a dog and that takes all drool/water/snot marks right off. Is your flooring a dark color? We have Krypton and it shows nothing!

  • Stacy Edwards
    last year

    Yes, my flooring is a dark color :( I guess that is water. The water marks and drool marks from my dog, kids, and husband are driving me insane!!

  • recordaras
    last year

    Oh man I’m sorry. We had a rental with dark floors (supposedly hardwood per the listing, but I strongly suspect it was laminate) and it was a NIGHTMARE. Floors never looked clean. Every speck of dust, every dog hair, every water spot, every sock/foot mark on a newly washed floor. Unfortunately I think it’s a color issue and not a SuperCore issue. :( So area rugs where you can and microfiber mop and water for cleaning - I’ve found that many cleaning solutions (even Bona) when used regularly tend to build up and make things even worse. The microfiber has a nice amount of grip, but you still need some upper body strength to scrub off what my husband calls “dog snot”.

  • Stacy Edwards
    last year

    I'm assuming all my failed attempts means you are correct :'( Thanks for the feedback!

  • Gina-Marie Clark
    last year

    @Stacy Edwards I personally fell in love with a steam mop more recently but before that and when we had darker laminate I used a Rubbermaid refillable mop with their mop pads and members mark (from Sams Club) no rinse floor cleaner. It's a concentrate so it lasts forever. I also had to make sure the pad was clean every time or I would just be pushing around dirt and it would make streaks. I mop every day multiple times a day also because I hate doggie prints so the dirt doesn't get a chance to really build up. That always caused a problem when I would skip a day or days.

The floors are beautiful, such a remarkable improvement moving from the 3 different types of flooring downstairs to just the one throughout. I will also have SuperCore installed in the upstairs hallway. I plan to post pictures very soon!

    We did it! We installed Supercore in our second home and this new click lock system is amazing!!!

I love it so much!!!

    Supercore - other than thickness, what is the benefit to 8mm over the 6mm? I like the colors in the 6mm better, but I like the heftiness and more pronounced grain of the 8. Appreciate any guidance as we are looking to potentially floor 3k+ feet of our new build. Thanks!

  • Elle Evanston
    last year

    Anita,

    Some folks are sold on the perception that thicker is better, but in the case of 6 vs 8mm, there would be no performance difference. A majority of our colors are 6mm, we find that is the sweet spot for best price and performance. Those that are removing old 8mm laminate material find the 8mm works well when fitting the new floor to precut door jams and baseboard heights. If you would like to book a consult to learn more about Supercore, please reach out to zoe@weshipfloors.com to schedule a time to talk.

    Wild Acacia extreme Supercore

    I have been looking for LVP for a few years. Brought home many samples and did all kinds of wear test. I did not want any transition strips. Then I discovered Flooret and Weshipfloors supercore. After many samples. I decided on Supercore Extreme. Bought a sample of Acacia put 10 pieces down in front of kitchen door for 1 year testing I really liked the color. But it had painted bevels. I did not want bevels. Finally checked back on website and they now have Wild Acacia. I recieved a sample and fell in love with the color. I installed the flooring myself (I still have not finished with shoe mold everywhere) it has been down for 3 months now. I love it. I have put all proper pads under furniture and heavy appliances to avoid dents and scratches. I attached canvas under all throw rugs instead of other type of rug pads. I needed a floor to stand up to me. I also have 1 cat and 24 grandchildren. We have taken care of a puppy for a few weeks. I love my floors.

    Has anyone installed over cement, if so is it loud to walk on , does it echo in the room?

  • seekingflooring
    4 months ago

    Kath

    That is what Supercore is designed for, I just installed 1000sf in my basement reno and it is quiet to walk on. It has the muffling pad attached to it to add a little cushion underfoot while making it feel like a solid stable floor. There is absolutely no hollow sound. I chose the lighter tones of the Oyster since I have a daylight basement with few windows.


  • recordaras

    We have Supercore on a concrete slab and the only thing that’s loud is dog claws klop-klopping on it! That really is quite noisy, otherwise absolutely no complaints about the sound.

  • cbird02

    I would like to get feedback on the Supercore Basics line. I am looking at Solitude for around 1,000 sf. I have an old wood subfloor that I am going to need to do a lot of leveling on. Where do you draw the line for telling someone that a 4.5mm floor is not for them? I know I only get a 12mil wear layer, but the fact that it is still Aluminum Oxide and has a stone composite core makes me feel it will be ok. Is there any difference in the locking system? The lock does not seem as hefty on the samples for the basics line. I get concerned that with an old pier and beam supported floor that has settled, even if I level the floor, will the less hardy locking system fail if I get slight movement with any further settling?
