I purchased this 1/2 in. cork underlayment to go on the wall in my office/music studio. The other Studio quality solutions would have looked much better but ranged in price from $600-$1000 and this entire package of cork ran me $200 plus the cost of the bucket of adhesive to place the cork on the wall. I have a new house in Alabama and here they do not insulate the "Inside walls" just the outside ones. Well let's just say if somebody is snoring in the room next to my studio I can hear it 100%. I placed the cork on the wall and the door that faced the inside of the house so as not to disturb my Wife when playing music or my guitar.
I also put some behind the washer/dryer room that is next to my office. All I can say is that "It Works" It doesn't black out 100% of the sound but it does more than wall insulation would ever do. Now if I had this house built I would have put the sound barrier they sell in the music stores online to block out even more sound. I still have my sound diffusers on the wall so every little bit counts.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KAG514 Loved this cork!
We installed this cork on our closet walls to help with insulation. The quality of the cork sheets is top notch. Every sheet was in perfect condition and super easy to work with. Our 100 lb Doberman jumped on top of a few of the sheets that were on the bed and even she didn't damage them! They applied very easily to the walls, were a breeze to trim and seem to keep the closets a bit warmer. We even painted them once they were installed and you would never know it's a cork wall now. Excellent product. Used a few finishing nails to help secure them but probably wasn't necessary.

I was looking for material to install a cork wall for pinning up notes and artwork. Many cork suppliers I found were too expensive for too thin of material. But this stock that Home Depot carries is perfect and was the best value I could find.
Installation was fairly easy. I used a combination of strong, removable adhesive strips and some nails for added support. I had to shave the edges of some of the boards, but that was due to irregularities with our wall.
We ended up laying out the panels to span an entire wall at a height of four feet. Although it serves a primary functional purpose, it's added a nice warmth to the place. I'm thinking of painting a stencil over it or even doing a mural piece. It'll be interesting to see how the cork holds up overtime.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cory Excellent Product
I put this under some bamboo flooring on the second floor of my home, (in a bedroom). I wanted to make the floor a bit "softer" and also reduce any footstep noise for downstairs people from the bedroom above. The product installed easily, (glue was recommended, but I used staples to make any future removal an easier process).
A side-benefit was that laying out the cork tiles confirmed the actual squareness of the room, (I'd measured it 6 times, but really couldn't believe it was square), which made the flooring install that much easier.
Note that a full box of 25 tiles is rather heavy, but they come wrapped in 5-tile bundles, making it much easier to move them around.
I used a box cutter to notch/cut the cork, and it worked great. I would definitely use this product again.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by GITNBY pretty good stuff!
Was looking for something to put on wall in our game room to replace some wall tile that previous owner had installed as an 18" accent on almost 80' of wall. After removing tile (and unfortunately much of the drywall skin), wanted something inexpensive to cover it. I shellaced the cork, then painted it .spread some of the adhesive on wall first, then used long finish nails on top & bottom to hold it up while it dried. Put corner moulding on top & bottom and it looks great. Pieces came undamaged, are easy to cut with a good razor knife and are actually m ore rigid than I thought? Very Happy with product.
