Advantages of Cork Flooring

Cork is an environmentally friendly flooring option that has been around for decades. To create cork floors, the product is ground up, compressed, and formed into sheets bonded with resins. It is a practical choice for many homeowners for a number of reasons. Cork floors provide a comfortable cushion underfoot because it “gives” when compressed, making it a perfect match for those with back, knee, and joint pain. Cork is also a natural thermal and acoustic insulator, which means rooms with cork floorings are naturally warm and quiet. Further, cork is naturally resistant to mold and mildew, and it’s also anti-microbial.
