Cork Floating Flooring: An Easy Guide To DIY Installation

Home Improvement
Cork floors have become increasingly more popular of late and with the floating floor design you can do it yourself and cut back on cost. With the latest technology and innovation cork has been shaped into a gorgeous product. Add to that its even more outstanding characteristics; such as excellent insulating properties, which help keep the temperature in the home well regulated; and its cushioning properties that act as a shock absorber, providing a yielding surface to walk on that is not detrimental to the knees and other joints, and you’ve got a product that raises the bar.

Another addition to its list of benefits is that cork floor is also environmentally friendly, which is an enormous influencing factor with global warming. Today, everybody is looking for ways in which they can use environmentally friendly products and cork definitely rates a part of this category. Derived strictly from the bark of the tree, not a single one of these living plant-forms was cut down to provide material. The tree is left alone for a period of nine years to regrow its bark. This bark harvesting is done very carefully and with as little damage as possible to the tree.

If you are a DIY type person or you want to save on cost by installing the flooryou’ve purchased on your own, you are in luck.

Cork floating floors is ideal for you. This type of flooring is actually easy to install. Distinctive to its construction is a groove and ridge system that allow the tiles to be interlocked with each other. This makes them easier to install as the alignment comes automatically and you do not have to spend a lot of time on that. Instead, you just have match the tongue and groove together and click into place. They align automatically. Moreover, you do not even have to use any kind of adhesive to glue them to the sub floor.

So without any further ado, here’s how you can install cork floating flooring on your own.

The tools needed are:

• Chisel • Carpenter wood glue • Measure tape • Saw • Wedges • Crowbar • Wooden battens • Ruler

First you will need to take measurements of the floor area. As with any project of this type, it is important to take accurate measurements. Don’t just measure more or less or you could get it entirely wrong and end up buying less or too many tiles.

Next you need to make sure that the surface area where you are going to lay the tiles is even and flat and devoid of any moisture. Dampness on the subfloor can seep into the cork tiles and damage them and an uneven subfloor makes for shabby and bumpy flooring, which is definitely not something you want.

Now you are ready to lay down your cork flooring. When doing this, make sure you start a few millimeters from the wall. Then start placing the panels one after the other in rows till you have covered the entire surface. When you reach the end if the entire tile does not fit into the space, you may need to cut it down. Do this neatly with a sharp knife. That’s it. You’re done. Now let it set for about a day before you walk over it.

Cork floating flooring is easy to install and is a wonderful addition to any home. If you are a DIY enthusiast and you want to change the flooring in your house, take a look at the cork floor selection available at iCork Floor today.
