Cork Flooring, Anyone?

I'm starting to consider options for renewing the Nor'Easter's floor covering. Has anyone used cork flooring tiles, or sheet cork in a fiberglass egg? If so, how do you like it?

We used a cork pattern in Allure vinyl strips, laid over the rubber mesh you use under carpets. Best of both worlds.

While we do not have experience with cork flooring in our trailer we did install cork flooring in our recreation room at home over 12 years ago. It is an attractive natural renewable resource that is comfortable underfoot and is easy to care for. There are negatives however. I would not use it in an area that gets a lot of foot traffic, mud, dirt or water (such as a camper trailer). We have also found that it discolors and deteriorates in an area with much exposure to the sun (next to our French doors). I think these are things to think about before choosing to install cork.

I have the cork to do my trailer, I just have to find the time and inclination. It will do great in there. Seeing there is not a lot needed, I would definitely go with a good quality cork, one that has a thick polyurethane finish on it.

With my business, I have installed many cork floors, especially in basements as it really does feel warm underfoot. Under normal foot traffic, it wears just as good as any flooring. Its only drawback is sharper point loads can dent it. High heels are not recommended, but any flat shoe is just fine.

An enquiring mind would like to know if that is the women, the little black dresses or high heels? Or does your use of plural indicate a combination?

Use your imagination, Roy. Then maybe grab a bucket of brain bleach.

Just to aid you imagination a little. Yes, the tall one is me.



Sorry to the OP about the hijack, I am done.

It's clear you have never been glamping. We had 4" heels and crinolines at our campground June 1-2.
