Cork ceilings or cork insulation layers on the ceiling?
I have seen a few discussions of using cork as a floor material or for floor insulation. That got me thinking about other ways in which this versatile material could be used.
My interest in it stems from its versatility, it straddles the line between a thermal and an acoustic insulator, and it straddles the line between an insulation layer and a final/finish layer or midlayer.
It seems it could be useful for killing a few birds with one stone and solving or at least improving upon some common isssues/problems.
One thing that comes to mind is the issue of figuring out the best way to insulate the ceiling ribs. Furring strips perpendicular to the ribs and extra insulation is one option. But it seems a cork layer could eliminate the need for this with the added benefits of more efficient use of headroom, and a bit of extra acoustic insulation, also possibly easier to work with, with respect to curved surfaces.
