Tips To Ideally Install And Manage Cork Floors Your Style


 
Home Improvement
Cleaning glued and floating floors is similar. However, people shun from installing floating floors because it is more difficult to repair them. Did you know that installing the floor correctly will spare you from the repairs?

How to perfectly install cork floors

Several individuals argue out that installing glue-down floors vary from installing floating cork flooring. This could have some truth in it but it is not perfect truth. To begin with, it is generally simple to install either mode of the floorboards. This is enhanced by the multiple finishes that are pre-glued on tiles. Also, the timing for their installation is nearly the same.

Nevertheless, installing glue-down cork floorings should be a consideration to anyone who has them in plenty. This is because it is easier to create cuts in them as compared to floating floors. However, when installing floating ones, you will need a circular saw to establish the floating planks. In the long run, floating floors tend to feel harder than the other type of strips. It is also a little noisier when compared to the purely cork tiles.

You must consider a number of factors before installing the tiles or floor. For instance, if you are not in favor of floating cork floors, then you must make up your mind to have beveled edges; thanks to glued-down floorings. The latter is an option of many home owners because they come in multiple shapes and sizes giving you diverse design possibilities to choose from unlike the case with floating floors. Even so, these people fail to comprehend the significance of the edges!

Reasons for the presence of beveled edges

Beveled edges are pretty common on glue-down cork floors. Unfortunately, home owners fail to understand the necessity of such edges because they tend to believe that the cork should be spread on the entire floor surface to the wall. Well, truth be said, this ought not to be the case, especially if you genuinely desire for durable cork flooring!

You will note that the bevel on tiles is approximately 1/16” deep. This is a third of the depth of a tile! It is considered to be a micro-bevel because it is only nearly a 5 degree bevel. Nonetheless, the beveled edge in cork floorings is stronger than the standard 90 degree angle edge. Consequently, beveled edges have the potential to resist chipping of the cork floor!

What is more, bevel permits for natural contraction and expansion of the base. Common knowledge tells you that all natural products are subject to heat changes and cork is not an exemption. This implies that with the bevel edges, the cork can freely contract and expand with respect to temperature changes without the tiles getting damaged or peaking over other tiles!

Even so, you must consider beveled edges as means of safety. Normally, tiles that pop up are subject to flaking off over time as you walk on them. Fortunately, with the beveled edges, you are guaranteed safety because the floors will have no room for cracking and getting damaged out of pressure changes!

If you are decided to install glue-down cork tiles, do not hesitate to ask for the cork floor expert advice. At Cancork, you are guaranteed perfect cork flooring installation from our extremely competent contractors. Even so, you can find more details about the diverse services that you can get for your floors from http://cancork.com
