A new force in the resilient category, the manufacturer of unique and sustainable floors utilizes cork in its tile. “[With Vinacork] the cork adds an eco-friendly component, which is not typically associated with LVT,” said Gary Keeble, marketing manager. “It enhances the durability of LVT with the many inherent benefits of cork— warmth, comfort, sound insulation, enhanced thermal insulation and more.” Also a glueless profile, it installs with proprietary CorkLoc technology.

“While the product-only price may be a little higher for Vinacork, the total installed cost is much cheaper than gluedown LVT when factoring in the floor prep, leveling compounder, primer, adhesive and installation time,” Keeble said.
