Cork Flooring in the basement
 
Hi
We are currently finishing the basement at the cottage.
Part of the job will be flooring
We are thinking about Cork Flooring
Will I have a problem putting a slate pool table on it? Will the table crush or sink into the flooring?

:confused1:

Glue down or floating floor?

Probably floating
Glue down is way too much work for and area that is approx 1200 sft

I don't think any floating floor is really a good idea if you are putting that kind of weight on it. The cork itself would bounce back from indentation pretty well if you are careful not to drag the pool table across it. Lift it instead. Floating floors are no suppose to have too much focused weight on them though so they can move properly. A pool table would pin it in place.

Thanks Poppa Meth

I'll take that into consideration when we get to the point of actually purchasing the flooring.
I was thinking of Maybe cutting the flooring around the legs so that that the table actually sits on the cement floor instead of the floating floor
Think that would work?

If you did that it would look like poop and you would have to border it with some form of trasition strips to allow movement of the flooring.
And what do you do with the holes when there's no longer a pool table there?
