Topic: Reusable flooring options

Can  someone suggest me on flooring options which can be re-used and taken with me once i move out of the house.I know laminate wood flooring and carpet flooring can be reused but the places where i want to install them are likely to have some water problems ....and if i put tiles/marble etc, then they have to be broken to be removed so thats not a option.Any suggestions??....

Post subject: try Cork Flooring

Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree (Querus Suber) which grows in the western Mediterranean. The cork bark is formed from layers of extremely strong flexible cell walls that are waterproof and airtight. The cork tree produces this bark to provide protection from droughts, fires, temperature fluctuations and other damaging environmental conditions. This tree has a life span of 200 - 500 years. The first stripping takes place when the tree is 25 years old, thereafter, stripping is repeated every nine years. At no time during the life or the tree is more that 50% of the bark removed. Harvesting of cork is not harmful to the tree. During the cork manufacturing process, all material is either used for a finished product, or used to generate energy used in the fabricating process. Very little, if any material is wasted. This makes cork one of the mostenvironmentally sensitive products available.

This unique natural raw material with its lightweight, flexible honeycomb structure, is impermeable to liquids and gas, which makes it an ideal material for a myriad of household products. The properties of cork are derived naturally from the structure and chemical composition of the inner cells. Each cubic centimeter of cork contains between 30 and 40 million cells. It is this exceptional cellular structure that gives cork its essential characteristics.
INSULATION Because 90% of the tissue consists of gaseous matter, the density of cork is extremely low, giving the material wonderful insulating properties, thermal as well as acoustical.
RESILIENCE When cork is subjected to pressure, the gas is compressed and volume decreases considerable. Once released from pressure, cork recovers rapidly to its original shape.
DURABILITY Cork is remarkably resistant to wear, as it is less affected be impact and friction than other hard surface materials due to its cellular composition
IMPERMEABILITY The presence of Suberin, a natural waxy substance, makes cork is impervious to both liquids and gas. As a result it does not rot.
HYPOALLERGENIC Cork does not absorb dust and consequently does not cause allergies.
FIRE RETARDANT A natural fire retardant, cork does not spread flames, and does not release toxic gases during combustion.
