  • Cork is extremely durable. Some old buildings who used cork flooring about a hundred years ago still have their original cork flooring up to this day. Its water-resistant and is made up of mostly air chambers so it doesn’t dent easily.

  • Cork flooring has suberin – a natural chemical that fights decay, adding to its durability and most importantly, suberin repels bacteria making your floor hypoallergenic.

  • Cork can be stained and it comes in different sizes. Some are even available with pre-attached adhesive making flooring installation a breeze.
  • Its naturally rich patterns and gorgeous wood hues, it can go by its already stylish self without the need of staining.
