Bamboo - A Strong, Eco-Friendly Flooring Option
An exotic, eco-friendly alternative to hardwood, bamboo floors are quickly becoming a popular choice among homeowners and businesses. Bamboo's eye-catching pattern and tight grain creates a distinctive appearance in any home environment. In addition, this plant is stronger than many hardwoods and can withstand more impacts than many hardwoods. Another benefit of bamboo is its reduced susceptibility to moisture. Many solid bamboo floors are laminated, which reduces the likelihood of gapping, warping or cupping.
Although more resistant to moisture than hardwoods, bamboo can still warp and discolor under excessive moisture. Ideally, it shouldn't be installed in extremely moist rooms, such as bathrooms. Bamboo flooring is typically cheaper than its hardwood counterparts, and it can be installed by nailing, stapling or gluing it down.
For many homeowners, one of the major benefits of bamboo is its eco-friendliness. Because it's a grass and not a tree, bamboo can mature within five years - a fast turn-around time compared to the decades it takes trees to mature. As a result, it serves as a highly renewable source of material.
