Buying Tips for Cork Flooring
Why Buy Cork Flooring?
Cork is an excellent choice for an application that requires both comfort and sturdiness. It is extremely durable and easy to maintain. Also, it is a highly resilient flooring that has both elasticity and impact resistance.
Cork is also known for its abundant design options. The versatile material allows for stains in many shades and it can also be painted. You can have the benefits of this material and still match any décor you choose.
Cork Flooring is Good for the Environment
You can have beautiful flooring and feel good about the environment too – cork is an excellent choice! When it is harvested, it does not damage the tree or stunt its growth in any way, making it a totally renewable resource.
What Type of Cork is Best?
It really all depends on your needs. Use plank-shaped if you are installing over existing flooring, but use tile-shaped if you need to glue it down. We can help you determine which is best.
The texture of the cork you choose will have the largest impact on the look of the finished floor. The traditional texture has small granules of material which give it a highly textured appearance, but you may also be interested in a peeled cork texture, which is a more natural look. But those are not all of the textures and designs available – contact us today to learn more about different options, and how we can help you make the best choice for your home!
