APC Cork makes beautiful cork floors. I never imagined cork flooring
could look so good until I stumbled upon their website. The floors they have showcased there are constructed of cork from cork oak trees. These trees grow only in the wilderness of Mediterranean forests. These trees are very strong and are also fire resistant. This is because these trees are sometimes 500 years old, and have evolved with time.
Note that the bark is only peeled off the cork trees once every ten years. The trees are not torn down; thus making APC Cork an environmentally friendly company. Hats off to them, their beautiful designs and their environmentally friendly business processes.
While I like my cork flooring, I have found the APC Cork company to be very uncoorperatve and unfriendly to deal with. If I call or have a question about floor care or anything else, for that matter, first it is like pulling teeth to get to talk to anyone besides the receptionist; then, they become very defensive and aggressive, in case they perceive you might have a complaint. . For a company that claims a 25-year guarantee on their floors, they are very unapproachable. If you want long-term relationship with your supplier, I definitely do not recommend APC cork..much better to go with Wicander, or some other cork supplier. by Greek Goddess posted on Sunday, May 16, 2010
