What is Cork Floating flooring?
A cork floating floor is a plank that is made up, in part, with cork. What makes this a floating floor is it is not attached to the subfloor in any way, as opposed to a glue/nail/staple in place floor.
By installing a cork floating floor it greatly reduces the cost of installation as well as time it takes to install. Cork floating floors can give you the look of wood floors without the cost incurred with a wood floor. When cork was first introduced as a flooring option (mid 19th century), it was available to only the wealthy. Just the installation alone was worth a small fortune.
However, with today’s technology, the cost of cork flooring has greatly reduced. Adding cork to a floating plank (click together system) has meant this luxury floor finish is now more affordable to every home owner. The ease of installation with the click together system, means labour costs are now not a factor when it comes to choosing this valuable wood floor.
Many cork floating floors can be installed for the same installation price as a laminate or engineered hardwood floor. Homeowners can install the floor themselves as long as they have all the tools readily available. This makes cork one of the easiest luxury flooring installations around.
