Cork is one of nature’s wonders. This amazing, renewable wood product is harvested from the bark of the cork oak trees grown mostly in Portugal. The thick outer layer of bark is carefully harvested, leaving the underlayer to regenerate for harvest in another nine years. This process continues until the tree is about 150 years old, before a new tree replaces the old.
An important aspect which will make cork your flooring of choice is that it is a good sound and temperature insulator. This temperature-insulating material does not let heat or cold pass through the floor, an extremely important function come summer and winter. Furthermore, Cork flooring maintains a relative temperature of 70 degrees all year round. Cork will also effectively lower the noise that is invading your restive moments, as a mere 3mm of cork can mute sound by 10 decibels. Upstairs thumping no longer dominates your every thought. The very structure of cork is what gives it these remarkable abilities. Like a honeycomb, cork airtight cells creates a material that is 50% air, light yet still durable.
In a nutshell, the advantages of natural cork tiles outweigh its disadvantages, which is evident from the impressive cork flooring reviews rated by homeowners. Install our Leather cork glue down flooring today and live the wonders.
