Cork flooring is a natural product that provides fantastic comfort and sound reduction!
Take a look at some of the benefits:
Cork comes in a variety of shades that can easily harmonize to any environment. Cork flooring is sophisticated and classy or can be earthy and tranquil. It can be complexly arranged in differing shades and naturally unique patterns to suit a wide variety of décors.
Cork is an elastic and porous material the allows it a lot of give against the weight it receives. This makes it a wonderful material that has a pleasant and very subtle cushioned feel to it, making it an ideal flooring option for areas that require long periods of standing. Its cushioning also makes it a great impact absorber that helps to reduce the potential harm of falls.
Cork is highly porous – so much so that our cork planks are approximately 60% air. All of this space makes cork an excellent insulator of both sound and noise. A cork floor will be warmer to the touch than other flooring materials.
Easy Repairs and Durable
Cork flooring is manufactured with a click system for easy installation, and this allows for some very simple and efficient repairs as well. Cork floors are tough and can take a lot of wear as well. You can count on these floors to last a very long time.
PLUSAnti-Allergenic and Moisture Resistant
A waxy substance that naturally occurs in cork called suberin makes the material a great choice for floors. Suberin prevents long term water damage and at the same time prevents mold, mites and insects from inhabiting the cork.
