Cork Flooring Retailers

Here's where you can find information about the various brands and makes of cork flooring and see what's available among cork flooring choices.

If you'd like more information about cork flooring in general, see the cork flooring information page. It provides more in-depth information about a cork floor and what considerations you should keep in mind before choosing.

Maker & Brands Of Cork Flooring

You can find cork flooring at most flooring retailers, home centers and building supply centers that carry flooring materials. Most often you'll see only a few brands at these places so we've provided a list of manufacturer's below to help broaden your shopping experience.

Another source includes online stores. Things to consider here are shipping costs, warranties and policies pertaining to damaged or returned goods.

In this scenario you'll either have to install the floor yourself or hire someone else to do it for you.

As always, it's a good idea to eventually get out and take a look at some products. That way you'll get a greater appreciation for how cork floors really look and feel.

Remember to get samples too, not only for choosing colors and patterns but to 'beat up' as well (you can usually get samples to keep from the manufacturers -- see their website for information on how to obtain them). Step on them with pointed heals or put them under a table leg overnight. Get them wet and put them through whatever other punishment you can conjure up and see how they respond.
