First, you need to know that APC Cork manufacture three different cork products, two flooring and one underlayment; they do have other non-cork products such as trim adhesives and finishes. Their main cork flooring products include both standard glue-down tiles along with cork flooring floors. These glue-down cork based floors are produced for both residential and commercial grade. Both of these cork based flooring systems are designed to be installed over a proper sub-floor, while the flooring floor can go over some existing floors such as vinyl, ceramic, hardwood, etc. If your old floor is not level we suggest you remove it so you can level the sub floor.
They are great at providing their customers with information about their products on their website. You can locate separate installation guides for both the glue-down and floating floor products. They also have an assortment of different patterns and colors available. It's hard to get an accurate number of how many patterns and colors they provide since some have similarities. Below is a list of their five collections available, each one has different patterns and colors.
- The Assortment
- The Olympian
- The Gem Collection
- The Kids Collection
- The Plank
They offer a warranty to both residential and commercial customers. The residential warranty last for a lifetime and their commercial is a 5 year "limited" warranty. Since they have an extensive warranty and a list of some things not specifically covered for each grade it is recommended that you review it prior to purchasing. Since we've started doing these cork flooring manufacturer reviews we've yet to find a warranty on commercial wear. However, it looks to us that APC Cork stands behind their product. They are also members of the NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association) and WFCA (World Floor Covering Association).
