Cork flooring is one of the most beautiful and comfortable floor material options available. Cork flooring is environmentally friendly and cork is considered a renewable and sustainable natural resource. These floors can be a little expensive and their installed cost per square foot can be close to a good quality ceramic tile floor. However, they are definitely worth the cost when used in smaller areas such as a kitchen, den or dining room but can be used in just about any flooring application.
In the flooring industry, few floor coverings are as comfortable to walk on as cork. The reasons behind this are the millions of air pockets inside the material itself. This absorbs shock, puts a spring in your step, and helps make this flooring incredibly resistance to dings, impacts, gouges, and more. That durability is sure to be useful in busy households, especially where pets and small children are present. Just as important is the fact that there are no chemicals to off-gas into your atmosphere, so you’ll breathe easier on so many levels.
For those concerned with eco-friendly building products, cork is a perfect addition. This material is harvest from the cork oak tree, taken only from the bark, so no trees are ever cut down. The material grows back in about 8 to 10 years, when it can be harvested again, and again, without harming the tree itself. The lifespan of a typical cork floor is 10 to 20 years, with some offering more or less time, depending on the characteristics and extras you might apply.
Be sure to speak with your flooring associate about the many additional benefits that come with this floor covering. You’re likely to have found your next new flooring.
