From the posting on this group, I have reading lots people have
experience about cork floor. Just add another one, I am about to put
cork floor through out my house.
What really confused me is that there are about a dozen manufacturers
make cork floor available in US. I don't know which one has quality,
reliable products and reasonable price. I have paid attention to
products from Duro Design, http://www.duro-design.com /, for their
colors and patterns. Can anyone share the experience you have in this
Thank you all.
Well, so far we love our cork floor. From the website you linked we have
the "Cleopatra" style click floating floor. We bought ours from iFloors.com
under their Westhollow brand for $3.90 / sq. ft. freight included to a
Really good looking stuff. Satin finish.
The click together design works well once you figure out that aligning the
long end first and then using a tapping block to seat the short end is the
way to install it.
I have not yet met anyone who has seen such a floor before. The pattern
concerned us at first that it might overwhelm the rooms. This is not the
case. It is simply stunning. The difficulty I have had is trying to decide
how to treat the two stairs we have. I think I'll simply use an oak stair
nose and stain it to compliment the cork.
Oh, I must admit that I really liked the carpet that my wife insisted that
we remove. The cork is as nice as carpet, to me. It is quiet, warm under
foot, extremely easy to clean, and soft to walk on. I love it.
