The Sustainability and Beauty of Cork Floors
Create a stunning and natural surface with our sustainable cork floors at INTERSOURCE Inc. in Minneapolis, MN. Made from the bark of the oak tree so that the tree is not destroyed, cork floors are designed using a process that involves grinding into sheets. These sheets are then baked in a kiln to produce cork tiles and planks. Cork floors have grown in popularity, as they are known to be an incredible alternative to wood floors and hold up beautifully under wet conditions.
Our beautiful showroom is located in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Twin Cities area, and we proudly serve clients in the upper Midwest region of the United States. Designers and clients can find gorgeous cork planks and tiles made for offices, commercial locations, and the home.
Why Choose Cork Flooring?
When considering whether or not to install cork flooring, it is best to reflect on the durability and long-lasting qualities needed for your environment. Cork flooring is a perfect option for high-traffic areas of the home, and you can install it without sacrificing your design style and the elegance of your space.
These naturally water-resistant floors can withstand water exposure without staining or warping, making them the perfect choice to install in bathrooms and kitchens alike.
Cork is an Earth-friendly material designed from sustainable resources and is an ideal substitute for wood flooring. The cork oak tree is unharmed as it is only the tree's bark that is trimmed every nine years, protecting the forest. Cork flooring can also be made from recycled materials such as the waste from the cork wine stopper manufacturing process.

Cork Maintenance and Installation
Perhaps one of the most significant advantages to installing cork floors is their low-upkeep. Cork floors only require regular sweeping and vacuuming. Damp-mop cork floors with a soft-bristle brush, and be sure to consult the floor's warranty before using any cleaning agents as some chemicals may be too harsh for the cork.
