I was looking to cover some badly damaged walls in a small utility room, and thought of cork. initially like a cork board, but these floor panels are better. 1/2"thick they hide every nasty bit of missing rotted and otherwise wretched wall. Like all click-together tiles the underlayment must be clean and flat if you want them to click with virtually invisible seams. If your underlayment is not 100% flat you will see some seams. I used construction adhesive to adhere these to the wall.

The floor was easy to install, my husband and I have never done any remodeling before, this floor just clicked into place. And the best part is that it just floats over our subfloor. No nails or glue. It's also soft and warm on your feet and easy to clean. Perfect for a kitchen with 5 family members! I highly recommend cork.

I had tile floors in the rooms on either side of my den and didn't want to put a third tile pattern in, but the den also was not a good candidate for carpet due to traffic and pets in the house. My contractor suggested cork flooring and I looked into it and immediately was sold. The honey color was beautiful and the pricing was similar to good quality ceramic flooring but the installation cost was much cheaper for the cork, so I bought it and couldn't be happier. It insulates against the cold of the cement slab underneath (there are vinyl tiles on top of the slab) and has a texture that is harder than carpet but is not as hard as ceramic tile. The pieces fit together so tightly that it almost looks like there are no seams, the finish seems to be pretty tough as far as furniture indentations, etc, and the contractor said that the installation was not difficult.. The contractor also left scrap pieces outside after cutting and they got drenched in a rainstorm but after drying did not warp or swell, which is important should any liquid spills occur in the room. Long term durability remains to be seen but as of right now I would highly recommend this product as an attractive alternative to carpet or tile.

Installation is fairly easy. Durability of this floor should be good. it truly is a multi layer composite material, and I talked to an engineer Who makes this material, me much good thought and design work has gone into making a long lasting and comfortable to walk on floor.

  • Wouldn't buy it again
  • March 08, 2015

I installed this flooring approximately 1 1/2 yrs ago in our dining room / kitchen area. The installation is very easy as everything fit together well and I used the best recommended underlayment.. When I was done, the floor looked incredible. It had a nice cushiony feeling and was warm to walk on. However, after about a year passed there was 1 issue that had come up. The best way to describe it is that the top finish seemed to develop "bubbles" in the top layer of the finish and then these "bubbles" "popped" and the floor now has areas where it looks unfinished. It also scratches very easy. We have used the recommended floor cleaner by Millstead the whole time and they have no repair process for this issue. I would be very hesitant to use this flooring again except maybe in an area that I wasn't going to use much. I would not recommend this flooring to anyone.

Pros Easy to Install, Looks Great, Easy to Clean, Comfortable Cons Scratches Easily, finish comes off too easily

I recommend this product with reservations. Once installed, it looks fantastic and is very durable. I installed the product in my bathroom and have had it down for about 3 years. The problem with this product is that the edges are very fragile and break easily during shipping and installation. Unless you have hired a professional to install this product, or you are very experienced yourself, you will have issues and a lot of unusable boards on your hands. Be sure to order more than you think you will need.

We have seen and heard people recommending cork flooring for comfort and beauty. It was easy to install. We applied it to an area that had Slate on before and was cold in the winter. Although it is only autumn we notice the difference right away and are sure it will satisfy our expectations this winter. I must admit I am peticular and wasn't sure if I liked the look but once on the floor that feeling was gone!

Just installed it. The photo online is NOT CLOSE to the actual product, which matches the sample in the store, so I'm glad I checked. It's very comfortable walking on it. We love the look. The finish marks easily just sliding a medium weight piece of furniture (empty corner hutch) which has nylon glides. It wrinkled the clear finish. We added felt pads to every piece of furniture. Installation is certainly not click and lock. A lot of time was lost due to the cheap paper laminate core, delaminating during the installation of the adjacent piece, causing it to flake and leave pieces under the installed piece. You have to slide out the new piece, lift the floor edge slightly, clean out the paper and try again. Worse, is that there are numerous places where the pieces refused to lie flat along the entire seam. There's a slight edge raised which can easily be caught by shoes or furniture and tear the surface. No amount of beating with a white mallet will lock it down flush. The hardwood transition pieces are outrageously expensive. We bought bamboo here online for $5 versus $45-55 for "macadamia" colored. We're very concerned about this issue and wonder about long term durability. Also, don't ever let it get wet! The paper laminate core would probably swell like a sponge. This product might be great with a plywood or pressboard (masonite) core, but not the paper core. We love the look, feel and quietness. Not sure that a few thousand dollars in flooring will last. Wait and see.

I think my cork floor looks and feels amazing. However, when installing it, it was very flimsy, and the tongue pieces did break easily. We have not installed it in the rest of the house as were are waiting to see if it holds up to our two dogs. It has been four months, so far so good. I think that compared to the price of hardwood or carpet, this floor is inexpensive. I am using it in the bedrooms of the 2nd floor of my house. While not of the highest quality, I am very happy with my purchase.

We had a broken pipe in a kitchen wall, and the old wood floor was removed to dry out the subfloor. In replacing the kitchen floor, I wanted something that did not compete with the heavy grain of the stained oak cabinets, and the color and pattern of these planks is perfect. The floor kind of "grounds" the room now instead of making it too busy looking. About 10% of the planks were damaged and unusable (usually the top plank was crushed and crumbling on the tongue edge) but because other reviewers noted similar damage, I ordered extra and factored it into the cost for comparison with other floors I was looking at. I contacted the manufacture with a couple questions because the instructions on their website did not seem to be for this flooring. It turned out that the instructions have not been placed on the web site yet, but were going to be on the boxes of flooring I ordered. They also told me the main difference between this flooring and the instructions on their site were that the flooring would be installed right-to-left rather than left-to-right. I carefully prepared the subfloor and it was a great opportunity to screw the subfloor to the joists and get rid of the squeaks and areas that did not feel solid. The flooring went down easily and looks great. Moldings and cabinet toe kicks had been removed to help dry the subfloor, which made it easy to fit the flooring (and expansion gap), yet not need to add 1/4 round to cover any gaps. I took my time and made careful cuts for the door jam and edges, and the flooring cut easily without chipping (taped cut lines and cut with miter saw or jigsaw). I did not use a transition piece at the door where the floor meets carpet (they are butted together, with 3/8" gap like the previous wood floor was), but can go back and add one if needed. I used an unfinished oak transition piece between the floor and the base of the rail that is between the kitchen and the adjacent sunken family room. I had ordered the flooring based on the display at the store and was comfortable ordering on-line, however, I only had the web image for the transition pieces so I just stained the oak transition piece to match. I had refinished and stained the cabinets and previous wood floor so was comfortable finding a match. The flooring feels great on bare feet and I have received lots of complements on the floor. I will see how well it holds up with time, and hope to install wood flooring throughout the bottom floors of the house.
