Cork is a natural type of underlayment made from the bark of cork trees. Much of the high quality cork comes from Portugal. Cork underlayment is usually available in 3 or 2mm thickness. If a moisture barrier is important to you, look for varieties with that feature.
One of the biggest advantages of cork is its capability to absorb sound. If you are installing laminate on an upper floor or in an apartment with downstairs neighbors, the natural substance has been proven to be extremely effective for sound control.
Cork is also an effective way to add insulation to your home, keeping heat and cold in and providing a barrier on the floor to keep heat and cold from escaping.
Cork is also a very ecologically sound choice, as it is a natural material, harvested from the bark of trees. This means that the harvest does not harm the tree and the tree lives on, with the bark regrowing over time. Cork is also extremely durable, and does not need to be replaced for decades.
Cork also has hypo-allergenic properties that make it a good choice for households with allergy sufferers. The anti-microbial nature of cork inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold, and mildew as well, which can create a healthier home environment.
Finally, cork is fire-retardant, offering an additional safety benefit.
1 - Easy to install
The installation of the cork underlayment is easy, but highly effective. The material is light in weight, but extremely durable.
2 – Disguises minor subfloor imperfections
Cork underlayment helps protect your flooring from substrate imperfections that might telegraph through and cause visual imperfections in the finished flooring product. This quality can also result in a material and labor savings in many cases, when the patching or repairing of minor substrate defects can be eliminated.
3 – Water and humidity
Cork or cork blend underlayments are dimensionally stable and do expand in contact with water or high humidity conditions. We offer several options with attached vapor barriers, which provide moisture protection for moisture sensitive finished flooring products.
4 - Protection from cracking in the finished floor
The use of cork or cork blend underlayments can help eliminate cracks in the substrate from transferring through to ceramic or natural stone finished flooring materials.
5 – Do not worry about dents in the floor
The natural resistance of cork to crushing helps eliminate permanent dents or deformities caused by heavy objects resting on the floor, or the impact of falling objects.
6 – Benefit from better acoustic and thermal insulation
The installation of a cork or cork blend underlayment reduces the sound of footstep noise both within the room and in the space below, in the case of 2nd floor and above installations. Cork underlayments can make on grade and below grade floors feel much warmer with their thermal insulating qualities.
7- Benefit from comfortable walking
The resilience of cork provides a cushioning effect, which makes the floor much more comfortable walking and standing on.
