any room. Cork flooring
brings a sense of peace to the noisiest traffic areas - perfect for kitchens, playrooms, family rooms, basements and even bathrooms.
For indoor air quality, cork is hypo-allergenic and insect resistant. Mildew and mold, mites and even termites are repelled by cork due to a naturally occurring substance in cork called Suberin
, which is also a natural fire inhibitor.
Beneath the feel-good nature of cork flooring is a feel-good story about its origins as an entirely renewable resource. Cork bark
is carefully harvested once every nine years in a time-honoured tradition using hand tools - without destroying a single tree.
With benefits like this, is it any wonder that homeowners across North America are falling in love with cork floors?
Whether your home is contemporary, traditional or relaxed, cork will enhance your overall décor. It is pleasing to your discerning taste, your pocketbook, and your commitment to renewable resources.
