Cork Flooring - January 28th 2002



Question from: Stena
St. Albert, AB

Dear Shell,

I need some information about cork flooring. I know nothing about cork floor but because of a sewer back up in our basement we have to replace the flooring and I was wondering if cork flooring could be used in a basement on concrete flooring. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Stena

Dear Stena,

Cork flooring is a very good flooring for traffic areas and working areas. It is very resilient and can be stained and finished with a durable urethane finish. Applying over concrete I would recommend Delta FL and plywood for a sub floor first or a new product available at most major building supply stores called Dricore sub floor system.

It's just that easy.
