I'm considering using cork flooring in my new office. Any pros or cons you guys know of?
The manufacturer I am looking at is Wicanders.
I/m still an old gluedown cork tile fan. I like Wicanders, have a friend who was their tech guy for years. The floating click is OK. But the gluedown is bullet proof if you glue it with contact cement and put a finish on top when your done.
Check out globus cork, and the borders that they sell.
Just finished a floater from USFloors today, Natural Cork, 4 1/8 in wide click planks.
I have 3/4 plywood floors because I was going to put down 3/4" hardwood and go through the sand and finish routine. Now one of my flooring subs is telling me this cork is awesome and from what I've seen, it does look pretty nice... I would do the click together, prefinished and ready to go.
Did I mention it comes sealed and so easy to maintain?
If you coat them after installation you'd need a goopy, solvent-based polyurethane as water-based coatings generally aren't thick enough even for high-density cork. I thought the solvent-based polys were mostly outlawed in the USA?

Perhaps you bring up some good reasons. I must admit my cork experience is limited. But I do like the stuff. One thing for sure...in an office environment, LVT is great when installed properly.
