Cork Flooring - An Eco Friendly Flooring Option

Because we are often asked "what is cork flooring", we figured it appropriate to help answer the question.

Cork floors are made from the bark of the cork oak tree which can be harvested with no harm to the tree itself. This tree is from southwest Europe and northwest Africa. Cork is harvested from a tree at least 25 years old and is harvested once every 9 to 10 years. Because the cork tree usually lives between 150 and 200 years, it can be harvested an average of 20 times over its lifetime.

As you may know, cork is very popular for bottle stoppers. Many cork flooring manufacturers actually use the scraps left over from cork bottle stoppers making cork floors one of the top choices for green flooring options. And speaking of options, cork floors are available in many different colors, patterns, shapes and sizes so don't think you will be limited in your cork flooring choices. The choices offered will also depend on the manufacturer and each brand may focus on a certain target.

Natural Cork is one manufacturer who claims to produce the highest quality cork floors available. While the quality of cork is important, so is the finish used to protect the flooring. Most cork manufacturers, such as Natural Cork, use and recommend a high-quality polyurethane finish which will keep your cork floor looking great for years. Cork floors are known to be durable which is why you will often see cork flooring in commercial areas such as museums, shops and restaurants. It's comfortable to walk on, naturally resists allergens and mold and of course it naturally beautiful.

I never new cork flooring could be so great. I found out about cork flooring because I wanted to make my home eco-friendly. I visited some flooring sites on the web and findanyfloor.com was most helpful for hints and tips. I had my cork floor installed professionally because I knew I wouldn’t be able to make it a do it yourself type of project.Natural Cork is awesome because it provides a natural cushion for my feet when I walk around my home. I also like that Natural Cork has so many cork flooring options. I learned about Natural Cork and others like Westhollow and knew this would be the way to go. My furniture doesn’t indent as much as it could with any other type of flooring and the low maintenance is what attracted me to cork in the first place. My cork floor was a type of glue down cork flooring which also helps with allergies, and mold from moisture. Good Investment!
