Cork is derived from the bark of the cork tree.
The flooring itself is usually made from the remnants from the manufacture of bottle stoppers or what one might call a “wine bottle cork”. The cork tree continually replaces its bark, thus a cork tree is never cut down for its bark. This quality makes cork flooring one of the most sustainable flooring products available.
Cork flooring has been around for over a 100 years, but now is enjoying resurgence in popularity driven by consumer demand and improved manufacturing techniques. What does cork have to offer that sets it apart from other flooring choices? Quite a bit it turns out. In fact, no other flooring product can match the combined benefits of cork.
Cork flooring is extremely durable, sound absorbent, a great insulator, and very easy to install. There are numerous style option and colors to choose from with this versatile flooring product.
