Important Aspects Of Cork Flooring To Consider

Home Improvement
Every product in the market has its good and bad side. Buyers are interested in both sides in order to determine whether the product will benefit them or not. If they find a commodity to have more faults that goodness, they avoid purchasing them. On the other hand, producers rely on the mistakes pointed out by their clients to better their products. These are the reasons for which the discussion of cork flooring pros and cons will possibly never come to an end. With every development, a mistake will be pointed out. Unfortunately, the rises in demands from perfectionists make it close to impossible to attain some demands. Even so, most products come to the market to address certain elements that you may want; there is no product that meets all expectations.

Things to note about cork tiles

Cork tiles come in two different natures; the glued down tiles and floating ones. Each of them has unique properties. For example, the glued tiles require 2-3 layers of coats that are made from polyurethane. This makes them to offer 100% protection from penetration of water and moisture. This is the reason for which this surface is often used in kitchens and bathrooms.

It demands for a lot of time and energy to install this surface but it is worthwhile. Even so, the level of effort required is dependent on the required square footage. For example, glued down surfaces are demanding to install when compared to floating surfaces. However, the floating surfaces are not waterproof. However, they only require for two layers of sealants to become waterproof.

You need to consider both types of floors if you hope to use cork tiles in the entire house. For instance, although floating floors may not be good enough for your bathrooms, they are perfect for your kitchens. You can also benefit from the obvious advantages of cork underlayment in ether surface. This implies that the floating surfaces can benefit from the insulating properties of cork. Note that as far as insulation is concerned, cork is as good as rigid Styrofoam. Therefore, you might want to use it in your kitchen to maintain fairly low temperatures. In addition, you will want to use it in rooms of your house that are susceptible to catching fire.

In addition, cork underlayment can only be installed beneath floating floors. It will be impossible to install them before putting glued-down tiles into position. As a result, you will not gain from the privileges of cork underlayment if you opt for glued-down tiles For example; you will not manage to contain noise in given rooms. Even so, if you do not plan to have a gym and studio n your property, it will be better to use glued-down tiles in place of floating ones.

Glued-down floorings are more durable than floating floors. Ideally, they can be used for hundreds of years. Nonetheless, you must be able to take good care of it. Otherwise, you will only use it for a couple of decades or less. It is suitable for commercial property as compared to residential ones.

Cork flooring pros and cons make it necessary for you to explore on the floating and glued down cork tiles before you install them. However, you will want to look at the relevance of water proof materials and the costs incurred when installing the two types of cork floorings. Floating floors remain a good option for residential purposes while glued down tiles remain suitable for commercial use.
