Beautiful, Environmentally-Responsible Cork Flooring
As homeowners become more concerned with making environmentally-sound decisions, the demand for green alternatives to flooring has grown. Cork flooring is one of the best choices if you are going this route, and when it’s installed by Affordable Custom Flooring, you’ll be enjoying it with the confidence that it will last a long time.
Cork materials come with a host of undeniable benefits that naturally increase the comfort of your home. Cork floors are naturally:
- Insulating. Insect-resistant
If that weren’t enough, it comes in a much larger variety of colors than you might expect, from traditional tones to dark, rich woods and even black!
Why are cork materials a green choice?
Cork is bark harvested from cork oak trees. These raw cork materials are collected by hand, leaving a layer of resilient bark that protects the tree while it continues to grow. Nine years later, the tree has filled in its lost bark and can be harvested again without ever damaging the tree itself.
When it comes to environmentally-friendly materials, a naturally-occurring, self-replenishing resource that doesn’t do any damage to the environment around it is the pinnacle of successful, intentional green living.
