Cork Flooring

Cork Flooring


Cork flooring is one of the most sustainable types of flooring our customers can buy.

Cork grows on a species of oak tree that’s native to the Iberian peninsula. It makes up the tree’s outer layer. The remarkable thing about cork is that it can be harvested from the tree without damage. Cork is taken from the tree about every nine years or so. After that, the cork is simply processed and ready to be installed.

The top cork layer on the planks is laid over several layers that are bonded together under high heat and pressure. This makes them very strong and resilient.  Also available but not as popular are 12″ x 12″ cork tiles but do offer flexibility of design.

Cork planks are considered floating floors and are installed like laminate, clicking together.   The cork is placed on top of a subfloor but not secured to it. The floor beneath it needs to be a hard surface and relatively flat.  Cork should never be laid over carpeting.  Cork tiles are glued down to the subfloor.  We recommend that the cork planks or tiles be left in the room where they’re going to be installed for about 72 hours. This gives the cork time to acclimate to the room’s humidity.

Another great thing about our cork flooring is that they come in a wealth of colors. They range from blues to grays, greens, reds and an amazing palette of browns. This makes it versatile product that will complement the decor of any room.  Cork is also naturally fire resistant and resists moisture, though it does expand and contract a bit according to the humidity in the room. Though it shouldn’t be cleaned with a soaking wet mop, customers shouldn’t be afraid of having cork installed in their kitchens!

We at the B & C Floor Store are pleased to offer our customers in the Portsmouth, New Hampshire area the beauty, durability and comfort of cork floors. For more information about our cork floors, feel free to visit our showroom or give us a call at (603) 436-9686.

Did You Know That Cork is Green?

Green is not just a color anymore, green is symbolic for eco friendly materials. One remarkable eco-friendly material solution for flooring is cork. It is the unique cellular structure of cork that gives it exceptional characteristics and benefits. It is estimated that there are over 200 million microscopic air chambers in a cubic inch of cork that provides comfort, resilence and recovery as well as thermal insulation and sound control.

Cork flooring is becoming more and more popular in renovated and newly constructed homes. There are many colors to choose from and it goes well with classic to modern decor. Cork floors are soft underfoot yet durable and easy to maintain. These great features are what sold our customer on the cork floor featured in the kitchen below.

It’s soft muted color provides the perfect contrast against the deep chestnut wood accents of the cabinets and compliments the stainless steel appliances beautifully. Each of these elements combined together creates a sense of harmony that gives this room a warm feel.  It allows the light to be reflected gracefully giving a sense of open and airiness. if you are thinking of putting cork flooring in your kitchen, please stop by our showroom so that we can show you many options that are available to you to suit your budget and style.
