The fact that sprayed cork retains more heat inside the property means that less energy will be needed overall, resulting in fewer fossil fuels being burned.

This will considerably reduce your carbon footprint and minimises the impact you or your business has on the atmosphere.

Corksol offers an easy way to do your part for the environment without losing quality or using inefficient, expensive building materials.
