Cork flooring pictures please

Hello all, I have a friend who owns a 1998 Fleetwood American coach 38' and would like to do away with the carpet and have me install new flooring. As the center galley section is factory ceramic I am trying to talk him out of doing the rest in ceramic. I have only been able to search out two pics of cork flooring here I would love to see some more installs and imput on how they have held up. Thanks Robert

UWE installed a beautiful cork floor in his '63. Send him a PM and I'm sure he'll send you pics.

Hi Robert;
The most wonderful feeling under your bare feet is cork flooring. I have installed my two years ago and we love it. My floor is aluminum clad plywood on which we glued 1/4" cork underlayment. We purchased a Lisbon 12" X 12" oil finished cork tiles. The reason for choosing Lisbon was the beautiful and very lively pattern from tan to very fine lines of brown and green hues. Although they come pre-glued we have used a Star Stuck HM Clear, brand spray glue made by North Star Chemicals Inc Cartersville, GA tel. 770-386-6961. With this glue you can put the tiles down 10 minutes later or day later. After two seasons of heavy use there is no sign of ever being walked on. Cork is by nature mold and mildew resistant which is one of important features in flooring aside of great warmth and feel under bare foot. I would never have anything else in my Airstream. Next year is my kitchen's turn, at home. Thanks, "Boatdoc"

Thanks for the replys guys, I did pm Uwe for some pics. I have appraised quite a few homes with cork flooring and I loved it. One home had 2 black labs and no wear was noticeable. I had to opt for parkay as I didn't have the funds for cork. He travels the race circut with his vintage top fuel cars and the carpet has not worked out well and he dosen't want Lam. or vinyl. I would love to have some pics to forward to him sent to me via email at rasears@columbus.rr.com Thanks Robert

Click cork

It is the planks that click together......Uwe highly recommends it....and we have been very happy with it....it is pretty forgiving with the dog and doesn't show the dirt right away. paula

Robert, I will dig up some more pictures tonight and send them to you or post them to this thread. I am quite happy with our cork floor in our personal trailer. 4 years and still looking like the day it was installed.

A question about click flooring: In my home i used Pergo and it is very sensitive to moisture from below. spills on top are no problem, unless they get to an outer egde and flow under. My central AC unit has had condensation backup twice at home and has ruined the pergo floor at the seams. Is this an issue with click together cork?

Cork is nice to look at and walk on. One problem it dents easily. I have it installed in my basement over concrete. You cannot tell there is concrete under the flooring.

Markdoane's beautiful cork flooring . . .

Markdoane:

I love the figuring in your cork flooring. Could you please share with us the manufacturer and name, shade, number or particular description of the cork you used? Where did you buy it? Did it come in sheets, trips or square tiles? What finish did you use to bring out the beautiful color? More information please! Thank you.
