Natural Cork & Bamboo Specials Near Deerfield Beach, FL
The trend toward green interiors in the Fort Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach, and Boca Raton, FL areas have given us a variety of low-cost, renewable resources like concrete, bamboo, coir, and now, cork. Natural cork flooring is a practical flooring solution crediting its appeal both to its eco-friendly source and its unique looks. Cork is rated on a renewable scale only slightly less positive in value than bamboo.
The use of cork is relatively new to the flooring scene in south Florida. Miami Carpet and Tile first observed cork in use in flooring in our area beginning in 2005. It was first sought out by those seeking to save the environment and then followed by those suffering from allergies. Many flooring surfaces choices are not truly hypoallergenic and this was the "good news" sought by those in need of a truly hypoallergenic floor.
The question regarding cork's durability always comes up in discussions on the use of cork for flooring applications. The answer is not always that simple. The "cork" part of cork flooring is the middle section of the floor. Cork floors are usually set atop a high-density fiberboard base and topped with cured acrylic to withstand all kinds of abuse. Cork itself is a softer material than solid wood, but the finished product is much less susceptible to scratches and dents. Regardless, the thickness of the cork is just over an eighth of an inch, providing just enough cushion and insulation for temperature and sound. Overall, it is a superb product not to be passed over as a fleeting trend.
