What is Cork Flooring?
Cork is made of the outer bark layer of an oak tree that grows mainly in the Mediterranean region, especially Portugal. It is sound proof, fire retardant, moisture resistant and best of all; they make the #1 eco-friendly flooring. It is the one floor that can not be dented or scratched with normal household use and is extremely comfortable under foot.
Cork flooring is usually available in either square tile that can be glued down to any solid surface or as a Clic 'N' Loc floating floor for higher LEED credits and easier, cleaner installation that does not even require underlayment. Some Clic 'N' Loc cork floors require annual or semi-annual sealing to avoid water seeping through the seams and inflating the HDF board especially in kitchens.
