WECU (pronounced “we see you”) is our economical and effective cork underlayment. We are proud of its flawless track record since its introduction in Florida in 1978 where tens of millions of square feet of WECU cork underlayment have been installed. A special preservative has been incorporated into the cork and binder mixture making WECU impenetrable to moisture. The density this process creates provides both effective sound control as well as stress crack protection. It is by far the most reliable cork underlayment on the market.

Cork is Sustainable

In these times of increased concern for the environment, cork remains the only tree which can regenerate itself after each harvest, leaving the tree unharmed.

Cork is an all natural product derived from the bark of the cork tree. Cork is a variety of oak tree which regrows its bark every 9 years. This results in an all natural, environmentally responsible product with exceptional physical properties.

It is cork’s extraordinary ability to continuously regenerate itself that has allowed our work to be earth friendly, a notion that forms the foundation of our business. This is something we are very proud of, especially in today’s industrialized marketplace.

Cork is the bark of an oak tree known botanically as QUERCUS SUBER. It is an evergreen which grows in commercial stands only in areas bordering the Mediterranean Sea. 

The cork bark is stripped off 2/3 of the tree. The first harvest does not occur until the tree is approximately 20 years old. A thin layer of protective inner bark gives the cork oak its unique ability to survive and regenerate itself after the debarking process. 

Unique Nature of Cork

Cork is a natural product with remarkably unique qualities unmatched by any other natural material. One cubic inch of cork consists of not less than 200 million completely enclosed air cells each measuring 1/1000″ in diameter. Each minute cell is 14 sided which virtually eliminates empty spaces between the cells.

The famous advantages of cork’s physical properties include:

  • Quiet & Acoustic
  • Warm & Insulating
  • Soft & Comfortable
  • Environmentally Friendly
  • Hypoallergenic & Anti-Fungal

With the discovery of cork stoppers in a newly acquired warehouse in 1868, the Wicander family embarked on what was to become a family legacy in the cork industry.

This journey would span two continents and continues on today through their great great grandchildren. Although today WE Cork products are made available by distributors in every region of the United States, the company is based in historic Exeter, NH.

From Ann Wicander’s desk:

For more than one hundred and fifty years, one thing has stayed the same at WE Cork, we have a passion for cork. It is the splendor, beauty, resilience, and ability to regenerate that makes cork so remarkable. These attributes have inspired five generations to truly believe that the use of cork in our products is not just good business sense but a way of life. 

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our family, the WE Cork family and invite you to join in our vision.
