Using high-performance thermal cork insulation on your home’s exterior is an easy and affordable way to gain an impressive array of benefits for your household, including environmentally-friendly thermal insulation, exceptional sound absorption, proven fire resistance, and the ultimate in water protection. With Thermal Corkshield, you’ll also experience a drastic reduction in your energy usage while keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Thermal Corkshield is a naturally renewable resource with a tremendous level of sustainability – our durable insulation product is the high-value home exterior solution that delivers long-lasting results.


Thermal CorkShield™ is extremely resistant to harsh conditions, only fading 1% – 2% annually. One on the natural properties of cork is it will never reach a freezing point even after being submerged in liquid nitrogen.

Fire Resistant

Cork is a naturally fire retardant material that will not release incandescent particles nor will the flames propagate. It slows or stops the spread of fire or reduces its intensity. This is accomplished by chemical reactions that reduce the flammability of fuels or delay their combustion. Thermal CorkShield™ has a class A fire rated from ICC.


The bark of the cork tree is removed every nine years causing large amounts of oxygen to be released by the tree into the environment. The tree will last for hundreds of years continuing to grow new bark. Thermal Cork-Shield is a greener naturally renewable resource.

Improved Home Exterior

Our product not only lowers utility bills, but it also adds consistent texture and color making your home beautiful and stand out for years to come!

Our product will also not chip, fade or crack. It can transform the look of your home since it comes in many available colors.

Cork is very low density and quite light, reducing any structural concerns.

Suitable for Both Residential & Commercial Projects

We specialize in both residential and commercial projects, no matter the size or complexity of the job. Thermal CorkShield is an innovative product that insulates your home or office, resists cracks, and doesn’t fade. The material is both waterproof and breathable, meaning it prevents water from entering from the outside while allowing moisture to escape from the inside, limiting the opportunity for mold to grow.

Thermal Corkshield can decrease the chances of fire by 50% and upwards and acts as a thermal barrier that will significantly reduce heat from entering your home or office. Thermal CorkShield insulates your building from outside noise, giving you a quiet, peaceful interior. It can minimize echo in any room, home, or business. Cork is such a great isolator and absorber of sound waves that many recording studios still use it for acoustic insulation.

Cork insulation is sprayed on and adheres to almost any surface, including wood, Masonite, metal, concrete, and brick. Apply cork insulation to your home’s exterior, shed, industrial equipment, and beyond for thermal insulation that is more durable, economical, and eco-friendly than traditional interior insulation.
