Our designs far surpass anything else on the market. Various thicknesses and custom sizes provide flexibility. Our new floating product interlocks without glue. Unique patterns include stripes and mosaics, along with the richest classic solids. Prominent corporations (American Eagle, UPMC, Corning) universities (Pitt, University Club), churches (St John and Paul, Shadyside Presbyterian) and restaurants (Soba in Shadyside, Eleven in the Strip District) are just some of the many applications for our cork.. Our very green roster continues with recycled rubber flooring in a sophisticated palette and a cork and rubber product. Call us for a presentation and samples. The quiet resilience and timeless aesthetic (see Fallingwater) of cork finds its fullest expression in Expanko. www.expanko.com

The idea of vinyl wood planks may have you scratching your head but once you take a look at the Parterre line you will find a great solution to a flooring predicament. For 20 years Parterre's designs have replicated the beauty of stone, wood (UPMC Standard) and metallic surfaces in a luxury vinyl product. Made from 40% recycled material (hello LEED points) they are recyclable into new material at the end of their (perhaps 25 yr.) life on the floor. Low maintenance and low prices make this line ideal for those times when the real material product is impractical or too expensive. www.parterreflooring.com
