Cork Flooring: Overview
Cork is a good choice for a number of reasons: it's sustainable, beautiful, lasting, quiet and it's the best for allergy sufferers. Cork flooring is made from the bark of the cork oak tree (quercus suber 1n.). This bark is stripped from the cork tree every nine years inflicting no damage upon the tree.
Chemicals are rarely if ever used in the production of the cork trees either for pest control or fertilizer. Recycled content: waste cork from wine cork production is used, waste generated from floor tile production is then granulated and used to power the ovens that bake the floor tile (although energy is recovered, combustion produces emissions).
Lumber Liquidators offers plenty of options in Cork and Bamboo flooring to help make your home more eco-friendly. Lumber Liquidators offers 13 varieties from three brands—Morning Star Bamboo, Supreme Bamboo and Schön Engineered Flooring—in varying sizes of floor boards and finishes. Lumber Liquidators also offers different cork flooring options from Lisbon Cork that all come with a 25-year warranty.
