Natural cork comes from the bark of cork oak trees. The bark is harvested without harm to the tree and will renew itself naturally over the period of 10-12 years before being harvested again. Cork harvesting is done by hand without the aid of machinery. Additionally, cork harvesting can actually aid in combating global warming as each time cork is harvested the tree absorbs more CO2 to aid in the regeneration process and releases more oxygen. Regularly harvested cork trees store 3-5 times more CO2 than those left unharvested. Because of this, cork is a very environmentally friendly method of insulation.

BENEFITS OF THERMAL CORKSHIELD™
There are multiple benefits to having Thermal CorkShield™ applied to any building. Cork has many characteristics in nature, and we utilize those characteristics to add many new features to your home or building.
Our product is a natural thermal barrier that greatly reduces the heat and cold from penetrating into your home or office (and also keeps the warm/cool air in) during the summer and winter months. This barrier results in a 20-30% monthly decrease in your electric bill year-round by causing the heater or A/C from turning on fewer times throughout the day.
Cork is naturally a fire retardant material. Cork will not release incandescent particles nor will the flames propagate. Making this the perfect flameproof protection you can give to your building.
Thermal CorkShield™ will reduce sound transmission, making your home or building much quieter!
Cork is a naturally water resistant and mold resistant material meaning there will never be any water damage or development of mold in or on your building where the cork is applied.
LONG LASTING PROTECTION
Due to its elastic nature, the material expands and shrinks depending on the weather which means it will never chip away as stucco or paint does. This characteristic is also the reason why any building with Thermal CorkShield™ applied to it has years of protection and life added to it.
