Forna Floating Cork Flooring
A floating cork flooring is a floor that is made up, in part, with cork. This floor is not attached to the subfloor in any way. This is what makes it a “floating floor” as opposed to a glue/nail/staple in place floor.
A floating cork flooring greatly reduces cost of installation as well as time of install. Cork floating floors allow everyone who is looking into wood floors to afford a cork floor installed in their home. When cork was first introduced as a flooring option (mid 19th century), it was available to very few. Only the wealthy could afford a floating cork flooring. The installation alone was worth a small fortune.
With today’s technology, the cost of cork flooring has greatly reduced. Added to a floating plank (click together system) cork has become the luxury floor finish that every home owner can afford. Because of the click-together system has added ease of installation, labour costs no longer need to be a major factor when it comes to this valuable wood floor.
Many floating cork flooring can be installed for the same installation price as a laminate or engineered hardwood floor. DIY homeowners can install the floor themselves – so long as they have the tools readily available. This makes cork one of the easiest luxury flooring installations around.
