With green flooring being the recent rage, a lot of people are opting for cork. As a matter of fact, the raw material is harvested from the bark of cork oak trees making it a natural and renewable material. Thanks to its durability, beauty and other unique characteristics it has emerged as a popular choice in most American homes.
When installed as an underlay for hardwood, laminate, or tile flooring it effectively creates a sound barrier.
One of the benefits of using natural filament is that it is low on maintenance, and it can be installed on any surface. The only down side of this flooring is that, sharp objects can punctuate the tiles leaving tell-tale signs of wear. Besides, it is highly priced as compared to other flooring options.
