What is Cork?

Cork is a beautifully warm product, that compliments all decor by being both stylish and practical.

Cork is very soft, sound deadening and warm to the touch. It is considered to be the warmest hard surface floor on the market.

This type of flooring is considered to be a “floating” floor (click-together style), which means for the do-it-yourself-er, it is quite simple to install with minimal tools.

Most manufacturers will recommend some form of poly to be laid down prior to the cork, however at Sherwood Flooring, we recommend using a 3/1 pad (similar to that of laminate). This will not only help with moisture, but with sound deadening and cushion as well.
