Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used the cork as an underlay to engineered hardwood for an acoustic barrier. Product easy to work with. Natural product versus chemically treated one. Very pleased with it. Adds a bit of cushion, too. November 25, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good underlayment Went down nice and flat with a slight curl up on the cut ends, used a board to secure the cork until the glue dried. Handle it delicately as it can rip easily - once glued down, the rip was not noticeable. Used a roller to adhere the underlayment to the glue. I am very happy with how the product performed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cork under click & lock flooring - be carefull August in northern NH and it's humid. I unwrapped the cork, laid it down & allowed a half inch between sheets & where it met the walls. 12 hours later the 48 & 1/4 inch wide sheets were a full 49 wide. It expands 3/4 inch in every direction for every 4 feet of width or length. In a 15 ft. run it easily went an extra inch & a half overnight to 15', 1 & 1/2". Plan for this expansion of the material. Get the wrapping off of the cork material at least 24 hours prior to using it. And then still allow much more than you think is necessary for expansion. If you're installing it in the winter months when it's dry still allow a minimum of 3/4 inch every 4 feet for expansion for summer will follow with it's humidity and it would cause problems like buckling. I have a cement slab. I covered it with 6 mil poly as a vapor barrier and laid the cork over that topping it off with Millstead, engineered wood, floating flooring. I had to take part of the flooring up when I saw that the cork had expanded so much. That said, I'd use it again. I believe that it'll make a good thermal break between the flooring & the slab. But due to the expansion I would certainly not use it under ceramic tile or stone as they advertise though it should work fine under a floating wood floor. Remember, allow a minimum of 3/4 inch space for expansion for every 4 foot width or every 4 ft. of length.. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by minor damage in shipment -- great product good price product arrived with small tear, but no significant product loss. Cork was easy to lay out and provided superior sound insulation under my new bamboo flooring on the second level... PRICE was best by far of any other suppliers. September 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value!!! Quality 1/4" cork, cuts easily and makes fine looking cork panels at a fraction of the cost of manufactured cork-boards. While about 20' of one edge was damaged in shipping, the sale price combined with a $25 HD Gift Card made me a happy camper! March 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome product, awesome price! I'm very happy with the choice to install this quarter inch cork vs using another underlayment product. I'm finding that this cork is superior to other "sound barrier" underlayments that I've used previously and at less than 0.70 cents per sq ft, this is quite a good deal (better than the fancy sound-barrier underlayments that are actually inferior, in my opinion) June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for large bulletin board Based on other customer reviews, I bought this to use as a large bulletin board. Instead of gluing it, I used finishing nails which don't show at all. For trim, I also bought and stained general purpose stop pin unstained 927457 in the store, which is about ¼ thick on the flat side. I'm very pleased! March 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Insulation This is a great insulator for concrete floors, and was used for carpet and tile insulator. A waterproof, thermal shield and renewable resource, cork is great to use. It arrived on time and in good condition. March 24, 2015
