Types of Cork Flooring, for a renewable option.
Cork flooring is the perfect flooring choice for any home. It provides acoustical and thermal insulation, cushions the feet, and is resistant to moisture damage and decay. In addition, all types of cork flooring are easy to clean, meaning your floor will last for years to come. Above all, cork harvesting is made in a sustainable manner. That is to say, it is never cut down or removed and does not harm the tree. With the increasing concern for the environment, Cork Oak remains the only tree whose bark can regenerate itself after harvest leaving the tree unharmed and healthy.
Variation of Cork Shade and Grain
Cork is a natural material, therefore no two planks are alike, which adds to its beauty. Some colour and shade variation should be expected. Here are a few examples of different types of cork grains.
Cork wood is engineered from cork and uses state-of-the-art direct print technology that looks like hardwood and performs like laminate. It has the equivalent of an AC4 laminate wear rating, meaning the floor performs to the same standards as high quality laminates, ensuring it will perform for years to come.
