Cork flooring is a healthy choice and good investment that when properly maintained, will last for generations. Comprised of a renewable natural material, cork is environmentally friendly, as much as it promotes improved health and comfort for human indoor living.
Cork floors create a warm, comfortable, resilient surface that is gentle underfoot, anti-microbial, fire-resistant, and inherently resistant to molds and mildew. Available in tile and plank format, it can be installed over almost any subfloor. Maintenance consists of sweeping or damp mopping.
Bamboo flooring combines elegance, versatility, form and function, making this natural product an ideal flooring solution. Now offered in new colors, stains, grains, and textures, bamboo floors will compliment rooms of any style or décor.
Look for bamboo which has reached maturity to minimize performance problems like cupping and warping associated with young, soft and often inexpensive bamboo harvested before maturity. Immature bamboo is often sold in discount stores.
