Honesty and friendliness... no extra charge
Cork Flooring

Cork flooring isn't a new concept. These floors have been used in Canada and the U.S. since around the turn of the century. "It gives you sound control because it absorbs foot falls and noise," says Ann Wicander, president of WE Cork. "Traditionally, it's been used in libraries and churches, but now you see it everywhere."

Recently, the appeal of green, or environmentally friendly, products has prompted a renewed interest in cork flooring for the home. According to The American Institute of Architect's Home Design Survey in 2008, more than 60 percent of respondents saw an increased interest in sustainable flooring.
