Cork does trailers; walls, floors, ceilings

Cork does trailers; walls, floors, ceilings

Got a flooring project that is a little unconventional? Say for an RV or boat. Worried that you won’t be able to meet your needs without sacrificing on beauty or functionality. Maybe even have to give up on durability to keep costs manageable. Well, we’ve got a flooring material that can meet those standards and shine. Cork. Yes the wine stopper of yore has graduated to levels that its retro counterpart, and the poor reputation thereof has not seen in decades. Technology and innovation has moved cork into the 21st century and made it a competitor to take note of in the construction world. But buildings are not the only place cork can work it.

Our glue down cork flooring goes as easily in a trailer as it does in a house. And that is not all, our cork tiles and panels can also do walls, ceilings, counter tops, cutting boards, tables, cabinetry – you’re imagination is the limit – with excellent results. All it takes is a little bit of ingenuity and elbow grease.

Ever thought that cork tiles can be successfully installed in an RV or 5th wheel trailer, well we have a customer who went one step further and accomplished this feat on a “double-decker” bus. Turns out his initial intent was to spruce up the look and feel of his home away from home with a lighter less expensive material. What he got was not only a lighter, great looking interior but also cork’s other awesome properties. The new installation gave him added thermal insulation and noise reduction. Imagine a noisy 1960’s engine that has been effectively tempered to a lower invasive level. Top that off with road noise reduction and quieter nights in whatever paradise he choose to see, and yeah, he so did not go wrong on this decision. He was so pleased with the noise reduction he took the time out of his restoration to call us!

We have worked with a number of clients to restore their streamliners and collectable camper-trailers. Yes the glory days of these vintage beauties can be yours once more and at a better cost to return ratio. Our cork glue down tiles are lighter than ceramic/stone and hardwoods guaranteed, and are beautiful enough to compete on the visual level. You don’t have to turn to vinyl and carpet either, cork tiles can be installed in any space (including bathrooms). Even better, cork tiles come in varying thickness, so it is easy to find one that offers the same amount of clearance for pull-outs than thin laminates or ceramic tiles.

But don’t stop there, cork glue down tiles have been used by our very handy, budget conscious clients to line not only the walls and ceilings of their recreational vehicles, but their counter tops, table tops, and benches as well. All in the name of coordination! Yes a décor that is a joy to create, and impresses without losing on functionality and savings.

And don’t think that is cork’s only fit. For those of you who love to sail, cork is nautical. We have already helped more than a dozen boat and yacht owners renovate their craft. And though the use of our cork tiles for “outdoor use” falls well outside the “residential use” warranty we have, some clients have taken the lion by the beard and flouted convention. As one fine sailor decided to do with the leftover cork used in his ship’s cabin. He took cork to the helm and gang-way. Cork’s low-slip surface is an excellent choice for surfaces that are exposed to water and bare-feet. It truly does us proud when our clients are confident enough in our product to use it in areas off the conventional path.
