Cork Flooring



2005-02-28
When using wood as a floor covering, cork is a particular environmentally friendly choice. Cork has excellent insulation properties, and does not cool as much as hardwood variety flooring, ensuring minimal heat loss and a homely environment. Due to its consistency, cork provides excellent noise insulation, another difference between hardwood flooring. In terms of VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions, cork is naturally low, however it is up to the user to check the composition of any finish or top-coat which may be applied.
