Cork carries similar aesthetic beauty to other hardwoods and does durable as well, but did you know cork does a lot more than its cousins. Most hardwoods can’t warm your basement unless you’re using it as fuel. Cork on the other hand is made up of millions of trapped air pockets that provide a barrier against the transfer of heat or cold. So a frozen concrete subfloor has less of a chance of leeching into a cork floor to affect the ambient temperature in the room. Help your basement stay warm and dry with a cork floor.

Cork flooring is the ‘green’ mainstay.. Unlike hardwood flooring where the tree is actually cut down, cork is acquired from the bark of the cork oak tree. Only a thin outer layer of bark is carefully peeled off the tree and no injury or damage is inflicted to the tree itself. Perfect for sustainability and for ‘green’, huh? Able to withstand decades of use, you’ll feel good knowing you’ve installed a ‘green’ flooring material in your home.
