Cork flooring has become very popular with Tampa Bay home owners. It provides a look that can be fun or elegant and is an environmentally safe alternate to other flooring products.
APC Cork's, cork flooring uses the material extracted from the bark of the Cork Oak tree, which only grows in the forests of Mediterranean countries, the largest concentration of cork flooring plantations being in Spain and Portugal.
The bark, which becomes the Cork flooring, was designed by Mother Nature to protect the tree during its average 500-year lifespan. Not only is the bark inherently fire resistant to temperature changes prevailing in those regions, but it repels more than 30 species of insects, including the termite. It is also very unfriendly to the development of microbes.
The bark is peeled off to be used for Cork flooring every decade. The tree itself is never felled. The bark is a tissue made of dead cells filled with air and lined with alternating layers of plant fiber and a waxy substance.
By using Cork, we keep the forest alive and the habitat undisturbed.
At Through the Woods, we are experts at the installation of these Cork flooring products.
