Cork glue down tile - Popular choice in Homes and Offices Today

Home Improvement
Many advantages have been attributed to the use of eco-friendly cork that is now available with attractive patterns and colors in homes and commercial complexes around the world. Oak trees can survive for 250 years and they have been extolled for their renewable properties over the years. Cork glue down tiles are used by many offices and homes as they control the echo and provide excellent acoustic effects in rooms. Modern technology has advanced in recent years to bring this renewable resource into homes with great results.

Cork is comprised of cells with innumerable air-pockets that absorb shock and is warm to the touch. The advantage when you use cork is that your heating and cooling bills are greatly reduced. People who have problems with their knees or joints find it easier to walk on cork floors, rather than on stone or hardwood floors. It is a boon to family members who stand for long hours in the kitchen preparing food or for other staff who need to be on their toes for six to eight hours at work. Cork flooring is often used in gyms as it is more comfortable for people who exercise vigorously.

Cork glue down tiles provide comfort and is proving to be a popular choice in many homes today. The cork that is peeled off the tress is pulverized and blended with adhesives before being pressed into tile form under high pressure. The cushioned impact of the cork tile makes it a great investment for the household. These types of tiles require a sub-floor of concrete, cement or plywood as the base. Sometimes a flooring primer has to be applied and left to dry completely before the adhesive is applied and the cork tiles are placed on the floor. It is advisable to hire a professional to carry out this job to ensure proper leveling.

Cork floating flooring is easier to install than the cork tiles. This type of flooring is not anchored to the sub-floor and requires gaps to be adhered to for the expansion of the planks. Transitions or expansion gaps should also be used through doorways. It is not advisable to run the cork floating flooring under kitchen cabinets. Make sure to incorporate the height of the floor into the total height of the counter tops and maintain a height clearance as instructed. Forna flooring is now popular in the North American market though it has been used in Europe for over 14 years. This flooring is “formaldehyde free” and “V.O.C Free.” Since this material does not produce carcinogens or harmful chemicals when it burns it is safe to use in homes and commercial complexes.

Use cork not only as a great flooring option but also as ceiling and wall tiles. They enhance the décor of the home or office and also act as an effective sound barrier. The cork tiles are thicker than normal floor tiles and have a distinct surface texture. You can be assured that it does not encourage allergens and works well as a carpeted surface.
