Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lyle48 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.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by cristos7 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!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by 6920 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 out of 5Â by Pete 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..

Rated 5 out of 5Â by steven 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.
