Questions & Answers

I would like to know how can I go about installing this product on top of a 5/8" plywood subfloor...

I would like to know how can I go about installing this product on top of a 5/8" plywood subfloor. I heard that cork has good insulating properties, so I thought it might be the best thing for my project that I'm working on. I plan on having a bamboo hardwood floor installed over this product, I haven't gotten to the point of nailing it down, but that was what I was going to do. What is the proper way of installing this product, what is the improper way of installing it (considering this is 'diy' for me)?
Asked by: Josh
I used it for sound insulation. My contractor glued it down and sealed the joints.

150 sq. ft. 2 ft. x 3 ft. x 1/2 in. Cork Underlayment Sheets (25-Pack) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So-so Was delivered in prestine condition...although it was delayed a week, but that's not the reason for the 3 stars. I ordered this in hope of reducing the sound from my 2ns floor rental (I live on the 1st floor). Some serious shrinkage up to a 1/2 inch in some places and the boards also started cupping/curling. I already had it down so i just kept it in its place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Cheapest Solution 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 5 by from Great value, functional, and decorative 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 5 by from 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 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it for cork board This pack came with 25 sheets that were all square and of consistent thickness. It was packed well and there were no dents or chipped edges. That was very important to me as I didn't plan on using it for it's intended purpose. I used it for a cheap alternative to cork board, which really worked out well for me. I hung it on the wall with some construction adhesive and thin gauge finish nails to hold it until the glue dried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New cork sheets work great! I installed three rooms using the cork rolls. These new sheets make the job so much easier. And the extra thickness really helps keep the noise level down. Love the product.
