Learn the Pros and Cons of Cork Flooring

Cork Solution's Product Specifications

Cork, a tried-and-true material for centuries, offers both effectiveness and eco-friendliness.
Cork’s natural cellular structure acts as a thermal and acoustic insulator, effectively trapping temperature and sound. Whether used on walls, floors, or even in items like wine bottles, cork is a versatile temperature and sound barrier.
Cork’s natural properties repel germs, making it resistant to mildew and mold – a hypoallergenic flooring choice. This contributes to a clean environment, reducing dust and allergens that can trigger asthma and allergies.
The cork tree’s sustainable harvesting process preserves the environment. Only the outer bark is removed on a rotational basis, allowing trees to thrive for over 200 years. The unique beauty of harvested cork is evident in our flooring products, adding a natural touch to any space.
Cork flooring planks are low-maintenance and can outlast their owner with proper care. The resilient finish and cellular structure support a self-healing process.
Cork flooring’s comfort and durability are unparalleled. It naturally cushions steps, gently compressing under weight and returning to its original state as you walk.
