If you are looking for a quick solution to having an amazing floor that will last for decades, then you are just in the right place. What you need to know about the cork FLOORING options is that floating cork tiles are going to offer you slightly different advantages than what you would expect from the glued down option. First of all, a glue down floor is not going to work in humid places such as your basement or your bathroom. But, a floating floor will work well with the correct preparation.
Surely, you know a bit about the many benefits associated with cork tiles. Well, when it comes to a floating floor, you will find out that there are even more fantastic facts that will make this choice the perfect one for your home. Let’s talk about your options when you are set on having something that looks similar to wood or when you are constantly bothered by the noise in your home. Fortunately, we have different products that we put at your disposal and are capable of taking care of these needs in the most efficient manner possible.
Take a closer look at our Beveled Edge flooring products and our thick, 12 mm tiles, for the noise control issue. They are two of our thickest floors and offer excellent insulation. We even offer you a better option when you want to install a floating floor in an area where there is a lot of traffic on a daily basis – Fusion Cork.
The main difference between a glue down cork floor and a floating floor is the installation process that you have to deal with in each case. The good news is that the FLOATING CORK FLOORING is going to be incredibly simple for you, even if you do not have any experience with installing floors. It’s easy enough to be a DIY project.
Why? The main reason is the fact that you do not need any additional products to be able to carry out this little project, just a few tools that everyone has around the house. If you are worried that you might make mistakes, keep in mind that they will be easy to mend. This is a fantastic advantage that is associated with these floating tiles that work based on a tongue and grove system. You just have to snap them together – one next to the other. Before you know it, you will have a good-looking floor you can walk on without any trouble.
There will be tiles that need to be cut to make them fit the space, but this operation is done easily with a saw. Just make sure that you measure them correctly ahead of time. It would also be a good idea to lay all the tiles out to see how they fit before you begin the “snapping” process. Knowing that there will be no additional costs will surely make you want to invest in this kind of product as soon as possible. You could say that it is not only affordable, but amazing for the air quality in the room where you intend on installing it.
Though this flooring initially costs more than its glue-down cousin, you do not have to buy glue or hire a professional installer as is a must with glue-down tiles, especially when you intend on installing this kind of FLOORING in a large area. Before making any final decisions, think about your current needs. Pick a design and thickness that matches them. If you are not sure whether a particular type of tile is suitable for your project, ask for some samples. It will be so much easier to make the best possible choice!
