Choosing the right installer goes a long way
towards ensuring the success of your cork flooring project. Have you decided to hire a professional, or would you rather
install the flooring yourself? Either option can result in a beautiful new floor under the proper conditions.
Cork floors come in planks, standard tiles
and mosaic tiles. The process of installing cork planks or standard tiles is similar to that of
installing hardwood flooring, and could be suitable for a DIY project. The planks come with "click
and lock" edges and create a floor that floats over the subfloor, while the standard
tiles are attached to the subfloor with adhesive.
Installing mosaic cork tiles is similar to installing ceramic tiles. Mosaic cork tiles are made from
recycled wine corks that are cut into circular discs and attached to a paper backing. Do–it–yourselfers can
probably do basic tile installation, while more intricate cork flooring designs and patterns may be better for a professional
to handle. Our Find It Locally search directory can help you locate qualified flooring professionals in your area.

As you browse the directory listings, you'll come across the FindAnyFloor.com Certified Seal. Our
seal is your assurance that a professional flooring installer is licensed and certified to
install your new floor. The directory listings are current and accurate upon publication, but we still advise you to verify
a flooring professional's credentials before you select them to do your flooring installation.
The fact that a flooring professional is certified and licensed doesn't guarantee they are the best
person for your flooring project. You'll want to consider other important factors, such as their experience, expertise and
work habits. For example, are they a member of the Better Business Bureau? How much dust will be created
during the installation process? Who will move your furniture before the installation begins and put the furniture back
after the project is finished?
Our Ask the Installer section contains these and other questions you'll want answers to before
selecting a flooring installer. Most flooring problems can be traced back to problems during installation. Ask the
Installer, located in our Cork Flooring Buying Guide, will help
you gather the information you need to make one of your most important flooring decisions.
