|Why Cork Will Be Your Next Home Upgrade
Pop the champagne and celebrate your day. Now, take a look at the cork. That cork can be used for a whole slew of other commonly used products.
Not surprisingly, that same cork has all the properties of a spectacular floor. Cork is a renewable resource that is harvested from trees without harming the tree. After the wine and champagne stoppers are made, the remaining material is refashioned into flooring.
Have you ever tried to put the cork back in the bottle, the same way you took it out? There is gas in the cells of cork that make it expansive and resilient. When flooring is made of cork, that resilience makes furniture depressions magically disappear within minutes. The gas in the cells also acts as insulation. This not only dramatically absorbs noise, but also provides climate control. A cork-floored room will be cooler in the summer and noticeably warmer in the winter.
Cork also has other benefits. It is naturally antimicrobial and hypo-allergenic. Combine that with the sound reduction, it makes the ideal conditions for the children’s playroom. The planks also come in an array of styles and colors, so the cork flooring can fit the style and needs of your family.
The common question we get is, how long is this going to last? There is no need to worry about durability. Cork plank floors come with a factory-commercial finish that offers warranties up to 25 years for residential use.
With all the features and benefits plus the unique appearance, cork plank floors can be the best flooring choice for almost any room in the house.
