The Benefits of Cork Flooring
Extra Warmth and Comfort – Cork flooring is noted for its ability to maintain a room’s temperature and provide ease on the back for those that must remain standing for long periods of time. The cushiony surface of cork flooring makes it perfect for bare feet and is the preferred flooring for kitchens, bathrooms and work spaces.
Acoustics – For home or work areas where noise is a problem, cork flooring absorbs sound in any location where sound echoes can be a problem. Whether you are seeking to diminish the sound of a neighbor’s footsteps in your apartment, or mute the music coming from the teens in the basement, R A Flooring And Painting expertly installs cork flooring and cork tiles that help to create harmonious environments.
Durability – For home and businesses with high-traffic areas, the natural durability of cork makes it a practical choice since cork flooring is flexible enough to bounce back from rugged and regular wear and tear. Ideal for libraries and museums or any other location that accommodates a steady stream of visitors, cork was originally used in turn of the century churches because of its natural elasticity to stand up to a constant flow of foot traffic.
Eco-friendly Flooring Material – Unlike traditional wood products which essentially use the entire tree, cork flooring that is made from the bark of trees native to Europe allows these cork oaks to regenerate following a harvest. In addition, cork tiling is made by wine cork manufacturers making it the most eco-friendly flooring option on the market today.
