Cork Flooring Offers You Several Benefits

Home Improvement
With a long list of benefits that all homeowners have come to appreciate, it is not surprising that cork flooring has become all the rage today. Not only is it practical, it is also attractive, durable and affordable. Of course, one of its most popular attributes is that it is also environmentally friendly, which has become a significant factor in today’s scenario. So what are the many benefits that you can get with a cork floor? Take a look.

Unlike hardwood flooring, which produces a thumping sound when stepped on, cork flooring is very quiet. This is because cork has a cellular structure that absorbs sound. It is an ideal choice for the upper floors of a home because as we all have experienced with hardwood flooring, any rooms below are subjected to loud thumping and squeaking when anyone walks around upstairs.

Cork also acts as an effective insulator. Even when directly installed on concrete, it stays warm as the thermal barrier keeps your feet from contact with the cold concrete. This insulating feature of cork also offers several benefits in the cold winters as it helps keep the floor warmer than usual, thus helping you conserve energy and lower your utility bills.

Cork is also resistant to all types of microbes and insects. Its cellular structure and the natural composition tend to repel termites and other common insects that otherwise create havoc with hardwood flooring.

In a household where one or more family member suffers from allergies, cork is the best material to use for the flooring as it is naturally hypoallergenic and highly resistant to mold and mildew.

A cork floor is resilient and durable. While it is soft enough that high heels, heavy furniture or other heavy items can create an impression on it, its structure is such that it is capable of bouncing back quickly so that the top surface always looks smooth and is not full of dents. Cork is in fact capable of taking much more abuse than most other types of flooring and has a higher rate of use.

As you lookat cork flooring, you will find that it is available in two varieties- pre-finished variety and unfinished variety. If you choose to use the unfinished variety you should know that you after installation, you will have to apply multiple urethane layers. The pre-finished variety has a topcoat of vinyl, which makes it easy to clean. Whichever type of you choose, whether it is the unfinished variety or the pre-finished variety, both are relatively easy to maintain and will last for several years. For homeowners, these qualities can often be the tipping point. After all, everyone would love to have flooring that will last long and is easy to maintain too.

The cork that is used for this type of flooring is derived from the bark of the trees. At no time during the harvest is the whole tree cut down. The bark is harvested once every few years. Between that time, the tree is left alone to regenerate its bark. This process is what makes cork a renewable resource.


Cork Floor offers homeowners several long term benefits. It is durable, easy to maintain, insect resistant and environmentally friendly. When looking for Cork Flooring , the best place to go to is iCork Floor. We offer only the highest grade product.
