Armstrong Metro Classic Maple has been popular sellers since its introduction in the 1990’s. There are two widths available in this engineered hardwood which comes in three and five inch plank with an overall thickness at 3/8 of one inch. Engineered wood floors are real wood floors and should not be confused with laminate flooring.  Engineered wood floors are constructed with a solid wood veneer adhered to plywood backing; similar to furniture with wood veneer tops. Laminate floors are man-made floors with a melamine surface over machine printed or embossed wood or tile patterns. 

Installation method for Armstrong Metro Classics in Maple calls for floating; stapling or gluing direct by the trowel method to properly prepared flat sub floors. Floating a hardwood floor means unlike traditional solid-wood strips, a floating floor isn’t nailed down. Instead, the planks are either glued or snapped together. The planks go down fast, over virtually any material—concrete, plywood, sheet vinyl, even ceramic tile. There are several floating floor materials available, but if you want real wood, the best choice is engineered flooring.

 Cork Flooring, the Natural Choice  

 

Cork flooring has been around for a surprisingly long time. Made from the bark of Cork Oak trees, cork flooring is extremely resistant to abrasion and everyday wear. In the early 1900’s, cork floors where installed in certain public buildings, and these original floors still exist today. This attests to corks strength and durability.

Cork Oak trees are approximately 20-25 years old the first time their bark is harvested. After the virgin harvest, the bark can be harvested every nine years. With its ability to re-grow its bark, the cork tree is stripped of its bark an average of sixteen times in its 200 or so, years. This amazing feat makes cork an excellent renewable product. Cork is 100% biodegradable and recyclable.

Not only is cork renewable, it is also naturally energy efficient. With its honeycomb shape, and cellular makeup, cork is a great insulator.   Cork is not just a great insulator of heat and cold, but a wonderful acoustic insulator as well. Cork flooring provides cushion, comfort, and quiet, all in one easy to maintain product. A cork floor is virtually maintenance free. To care for a cork floor, vacuum or sweep it once a week. When a little extra care is needed, just damp mop it occasionally. About once a month should do.

 

Cork flooring is made by grinding the harvested, cleaned, and boiled cork, and mixing it with resin. It is then put on sheets and baked in a kiln. The heat from the kiln, combined with the natural sugars in the cork, give the flooring its natural caramel color. Other colors can also be created by adding dyes, or adjusting heat times to the baking process.

The fact that a cork floor does not absorb dust and other particles makes it allergen free.  Suberin, a natural ingredient found in cork bark, naturally repels insects and moisture, and also acts as a fire retardant. With its ability to resist moisture, a cork floor is also anti-microbial and antibacterial. These qualities combine to make cork a healthy choice in flooring. Cork makes for an extraordinary floor, versatile enough to use in any home or place of business.
