You would never have to worry about a hardwood floor install again once that you have dealt with installing cork tile flooring in your home. The reason that cork tile flooring is replacing hardwood flooring is the fact that it is an all natural product, like hardwood, but the advantage that it has is the fact that it is made from recycled wine corks. So not only does it replace a costly hardwood floor install is the fact that it is so environmentally friendly.
An El Cajon hardwood floor contractor often now finds himself replacing hardwood flooring with cork tile flooring because not only is it an environmentally friendly option but it is also a good shock absorber, which means that walking on cork tile flooring will be easy on the lower half of your body and it won't cause a lot of noisy effects as other traditional flooring materials would cause.
It is important to know that cork is one of the most renewable resources on the entire planet. Another benefit is the fact that it saves a lot of trees from being cut down and harvested to be used for flooring. Cork trees take 9-10 years to reach full maturity, which is not the fact for other trees. Cork tile flooring can be installed in virtually every room of the house and does not have to be designated to solely one area of the home. Most of the time, homeowners installed cork tile flooring in areas of the home that reach the most foot traffic, such as the kitchen and the hallways.
Cork tile flooring acts as a natural insulation for space and for blocking out sound therefore it is also the reason that it is such a popular choice for second story installation because all of the raucous that is being caused on the second floor cannot be heard down onto the first floor of the home, which allows many homeowners to have the best of great flooring with the benefits of quiet time.
