Cork over 'wonderboard' or do you need additional underlayment?
After agonizing over kitchen, breakfast, sitting room flooring, Im still leaning towards cork. I have a bad back and hip joint issues. My MIL put tile in her kitchen a few years back (vinyl before) and she always complains that her knees and back are killing her. I think its the tile, she thinks its age. My concern is, for all the researching that I have done, it appears as though glue-on cork tile do not need special underlayment. Is this true? I have ordered samples from AmCork and have subjected those samples to my cooking habits including immersing it in water for an extended time. I am happy with the way they have held up. But they seem flimsy and not very durable to walk/stand on. Hence my question regarding further underlayment. I dont want to feel like Im walking on mattress, but I cant afford to have the aches and pains with 3 little ones to chase after.
Thanks for your help!!
