There was a thread re cork flooring in this list a year or so ago, regarding an effort to ³re-finish² cork flooring that did not work out so well. It appears that cork is a good-looking and advantageous product for a considerable number of years ? but once it is stained and worn, one cannot re-finish it to a like-new condition as one can with hardwood. Flooring is interesting on a life cycle cost basis. At one extreme, a good tile job can last decades. At another, the re-cycled carpet tile industry was pioneered by Interface, and now offers cost-competitive systems that can be reasonably fully replaced on a five-year maintenance cycle.
