Custom Hardwood Floors Baltimore: The Benefits of Cork Flooring

Cork can be used for more than stopping up wine bottles…

The newest craze in the hardwood flooring industry, Cork Flooring, is made using the outside bark of cork trees, which have an average lifespan of 250-300 years. But what makes cork flooring such an attractive option? Well, because the floor is made using tree bark and not the actual tree itself, cork flooring is a green flooring option. The bark of the cork tree grows back after harvesting.

Each layer of cork harvested yields hundreds upon hundreds of kilograms of cork to be used to for flooring.
