Cork as a finished flooring product: renewable, beautiful, comfortable and affordable.
Cork is a renewable resource, harvested from trees without killing them. Although it comes from far away (mostly Portugal), its carbon footprint from transportation is quite reasonable given that it is light-weight and can be made very thin.
The Edelweiss House is a slab-on-grade concrete floor covered with 1/8 thick pre-finished cork tiles from Lusimat, installed with a Zero VOC GreenForce adhesive from Bostik. We thank them both for taking part in this project, helping us reach our target of LEED Platinum while creating a healthy and beautiful interior living space.
