One thing we’re happy to see is cork’s popularity returning. Thie material has been used as flooring for hundreds of years, but it seemed as soon as we could produce wood flooring in mass quantities, this natural and eco-friendly flooring material would go by the wayside. It’s a shame, because cork floors have so many benefits. We’re happy to say we offer a full selection of quality cork flooring designed to our very own specifications.
One of the great things about the use of cork as a material for many things is that the only the bark of the tree is removed, not the whole tree. The natural material is harvested every 10-15 years or so and that’s used to make flooring is actually the waste from the manufacturing of products (such as wine corks).
At Home Importers, we’re big believers in this wonderful material. It’s naturally hypoallergenic, comfortable and when made well, very durable. Today’s advanced flooring finishes allow for easy cleaning and a quality cork floor can last a lifetime when well cared for.
Cork floors are available in a wide variety of natural and stained cork looks. Their plank widths, finishes, and edge types vary, as well as the surface pattern. Some feature a small granule pattern, much like the look of sand, while others show larger pieces of cork throughout the finish. This creates a stunning and unique look with every new cork floor installation. There are even cork floors that resemble hardwood floors, giving you a more traditional flooring feel.
Most of our cork floors are click cork floors, a thick layer of cork being attached to a recycled HDF core. They are designed for floating floor installations and when cork underlayment is used, you get a quiet, comfortable floor that actually helps insulate your home.
Good for your family and good for the earth, Home Importers cork flooring combines the best quality materials and our volume buying power to bring you the lowest prices on cork flooring every day.

Shopping for flooring can be tricky, but it’s easier today than it ever has been. Even though there are more flooring options than in years past, there are more floors suitable for addressing our needs. And our needs, of course, are that we need it to stand up to traffic in the form of children, pets, houseguests, dirty boots and all the rest we do to our flooring.
Technology has now reached the point where we can do more with natural materials and more inexpensively. We’ve gotten smarter, more efficient, more aggressive in finding better ways and while we’re not there, we’re light years beyond where we were twenty years ago.
Carpet used to be the most popular flooring, but it has lost tremendous ground to hardwood flooring, bamboo flooring and even cork flooring. Carpet has improved over the years, but it will never be as durable or easy to maintain as high quality hard surface flooring. Properly chosen, the right hard surface floor can last a lifetime.
The first step is determining the type of subfloor you have. There are many floors (like most solid hardwood flooring) where installation over concrete isn’t recommended. For example, if you have a concrete subfloor and would like hardwood, engineered wood flooring is your best bet.
Engineered hardwood floors are made using multiple layers of wood and a veneer of treated wood on the surface. The veneer will vary in species, as will the amount of plies used in its construction. These factors help determine a floor’s overall quality, as well as the finish (amount of coats and quality used).
When shopping for engineered wood floors, you want to be sure you look at all these things, including the thickness of the floor. You’ll want to measure from the subfloor to the bottom of doors so you know how much clearance you have. The amount of plies a floor has will also determine its thickness.
Other floors that are excellent choices for concrete subfloors are laminate flooring, solid bamboo flooring, engineered bamboo flooring, click vinyl planks. Other than solid bamboo flooring, these floors can be floated.
If you have wood subfloors, you have a lot of options. You can choose almost anything, then it becomes a matter of personal preference. In other words, the world of flooring is virtually wide open and you can pick what you like, almost without restrictions.
At Home Importers, we design our products based on the strength and weaknesses of exisitng brand name floors and you’ll see our specifications listed next to each. It’s important to be armed with all the information so that you can compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges.
At Home Importers we make all types of flooring in our factories including bamboo flooring, strand bamboo flooring, hardwood flooring, laminate flooring and cork flooring. In each flooring category there are 3 levels of flooring that all products can be defined into:
GOOD – GOOD floors are designed to be an excellent value and budget oriented option for homeowners that seek to accomplish a flooring project without investing too much into the floors. Often these GOOD floors will have fewer features and benefits than higher levels which help keep the price more reasonable. These floors are ideal if you are doing a basement that is not heavy use, if you are selling a home, a contractor who is building a new home or if you are on a tight budget. There are generally a narrow selection of products in this category.
BETTER – BETTER flooring options are right in the middle of the road. With more features and benefits and a generally higher quality level than GOOD flooring BETTER floors combine those features with great value prices. BETTER floors will also offer a large amount of choices of styles, colors and fashion choices. These floors will have a longer life than GOOD floors. BETTER floors are ideal for active homes including moderate traffic while still maintaining a tight budget.
BEST – BEST flooring choices are the highest reviewed and highest quality floors available in a given flooring category. Additionally BEST floors will have more unique style features including widths, lengths, surface styles and better quality longer lasting flooring finishes. These floors are designed for a lifetime of use in most moderate to heavy residential environments. Kitchens, Family Rooms, Living Rooms and the most active areas of the home are ideal for this higher level of flooring.
No matter if you decide to choose GOOD FLOORING, BETTER FLOORING or BEST FLOORING you can rest assured that you are buying direct from the factory and that gives you the opportunity to take out all the middle layers of mark up that normally cost so much. If you compare our prices with your local Carpet One*, Flooring America* or Abbey Carpet* store you will see that our prices are substantially below theirs because of our factory direct value proposition. In fact you can compare our prices to Home Depot*, Lowes*, Menards* or other big box options and you will see that the HOME IMPORTERS value is incomparable. Dare to compare anytime and you’ll see that the IMPORTERS group of websites will always give you the highest value.

In the nineties, installing your own floor became a popular choice for many. The labor to install a floor often cost more than the floor itself, so for those who were willing to install a floor themselves, they could save hundreds, maybe even thousands by performing a diy floor installation.
The revolution began with the introduction of laminate floors, flooring that simulated hardwood. People loved it. Laminate floors could be floated over existing floors which saved a lot of time and a lot of hassle.
The first laminate floors required glue at the joints, which were similar to a tongue and groove hardwood system. The moisture in the glue would swell and lock them into place. However, sometimes if you used too much or too little glue, there could be problems.
Today’s laminate floors are click laminate floors and require no glue whatsoever. That’s a large improvement on the way it used to be, so what was an easy to install floor is now even easier to install. This click locking system would lead to even more consumers choosing to install their floors themselves, and essentially, this is when buying floors on the internet also became popular.
Today’s floors are all vastly different than they were, as many now offer that same click locking system that was first introduced on laminate flooring. Now you have click hardwood, click bamboo, click cork flooring and even click vinyl flooring that looks just like real hardwood. You can find click laminate tile that looks just like real stone and cork floors that look like real hardwood. Each are as easy to install as the next.
If you’re like many and have considered installing your own floor, you’ll be pleased to know that it is likely well within your capabilities to do a professional looking job. There’s an excellent chance that, if you buy the right stuff, your diy flooring project will go smoothly and hassle-free. Many of our products are designed for the do-it-yourselfer. We’ve engineered them to make it easier for the casual handyman to finish the job from one end of a home to another. We’re also here to answer any questions that you may have, so if you do hit a snag, we’ll walk you through it.
Technology has made our lives easier in a lot of ways. At one time, you would have to shop multiple stores and consider taking out a second mortgage just to pay to put new floorcovering in your home. Now you can purchase simple, beautiful, do-it- yourself click floors at affordable prices.
