Cork is consisted a sustainable product because it is harvested from the Cork Oak tree, which reproduces its bark. The material taken in order to produce cork products does no harm to the tree, and it is left to continue living for over 200 years. Cork has a number of benefits including its natural buoyancy – creating a softer floor under foot, its elasticity – allowing any indentions from heavy furniture on flooring to bounce back to their original state, and its natural fire retardant properties – making it a safe choice for residential flooring. For a warm and cozy flooring in your home, consider cork!
The advantages to a floating cork floor include an easy install and repair, a natural acoustical sound solution, and warmer feel underfoot and aesthetically.
