Natural, striking and sustainable, cork is making its way from it’s familiar place atop wine bottles to a new location on the floor. Sturdy and versatile cork flooring is a great selection for almost any space. This unique, renewable material offers the best in comfort, value and durability. S&G Carpet and More is happy to carry a great new selection of Wicanders cork flooring in our Northern California showrooms.
Mother Nature’s Star Flooring Choice
The cork used to make flooring, wine corks and many other products is actually the bark from the cork oak tree. This bark is periodically stripped by hand, and new bark grows in its place. Of course, cork isn’t just a great choice for homeowners because it’s sustainable. It’s also one of the smartest investment choices when it comes to flooring. Wicanders cork floors are made from multiple layers of cork and feature thin, decorative veneers finished in high-quality coatings.
Thanks to its slightly springy texture, cork makes for incredibly comfortable flooring. Cork’s unique properties also make it a great insulating material, and you can expect cork floors to help your home maintain the right temperature year round. Cork floors can also be used with radiant heating systems, but you’ll need to keep the temperature within specific parameters to protect your floors.
