Renovating the home floor? Floor installation projects can be a major undertaking. They’re further complicated by the wide gamut of options. If you’re contemplating which material is best for the home, be sure to at least consider cork flooring. You may not be as familiar with this specific option. It’s a terrific selection for residents interested in sustainable materials for their renovation. Your flooring contractor can discuss different flooring types with you in-depth. Here are a few of the many advantages cork floors have to offer.
If you want flooring that’ll last, cork may be a good choice. Not only can it last upwards of four decades, but it’s less prone to wear from moisture and heavy furniture. Hardwood floors are prone to warping due to moisture buildup from spills. Cork flooring, however, is nonporous, making it ideal in rooms where spills are prone to occur.
Resistant to Mold, Mildew, and Pests
While wood is a visual charm, some homeowners are concerned about its vulnerability to mold, mildew, and boring pests. Fortunately, cork is naturally resistant to these and also happens to be anti-microbial. In addition, cork is great for occupants with allergies because it does not hold pollen and other allergens.
Your hardwood flooring specialist will be able to present to you the various cork colors, textures, and sizes. You’ll be impressed by the sheer variety of cork floors and how they complement the home interior.
