July 16 Problems with ES1 cork flooring

The cork flooring on the EcoStudio first phase has failed. While this product is used successfully in many commercial applications our Concordia units, exposed to wet beach goers and generally high humidity are too much for them. We also erred in using it in the bath and kitchen areas, not realizing how delicate the seams would be. A broken shower pipe in one unit added to our floor woes. Most recently we had a few days of high wind and heavy rainfall which drove under the entry doors on several units and lifted up the flooring. We will be replacing all the cork floors in August with the new flooring selected for phase 2.
