Bamboo

Bamboo flooring is extremely strong, long-lasting and just plain gorgeous to look at. It's also one of the most environmentally friendly building materials on the market today.

Bamboo flooring makers use one of the hardiest species of Chinese bamboo, cut it into strips before drying and laminating it under pressure. The result is a flooring product that's stronger than maple or red oak.
Bamboo flooring is installed just like hardwood tongue-and-groove flooring, either glued together or nailed down.
Pre-finished bamboo flooring is usually coated with urethane, but you can also buy unfinished bamboo strips that can be sanded and finished.
Bamboo flooring comes in two colour variations - a natural blonde or a darker amber version that is the result of the wood being smoked (or carbonized) during the drying process.
Most bamboo flooring on the market today is imported from China. Bamboo flooring is comparable in price to premium hardwood flooring.
Bamboo flooring typically comes in 3-foot or 6-foot lengths and with or without the distinctive bamboo 'nodes' visible in the grain.

Solid Bamboo Flooring

is composed entirely of Bamboo. These 3-5/8"-wide planks can be nailed to plywood or glued to concrete subfloors.

Engineered Bamboo Flooring

consists of a sandable wear layer of Bamboo on top of a backing made of plantation Pine and Fir. This can be nailed to plywood, glued to concrete, or floated.

Strand Woven

Features a contemporary characteristic with the appearance of flowing hardwood grain fibers with minimal variation.

Horizontal Grain

Features a distinct traditional bamboo "knuckle" pattern that repeats naturally throughout the planks.

Vertical Grain
Features a clean, contemporary characteristic with the appearance of long, linear hardwood grain. Almost no "knuckle" pattern is visible.

Hand-Scraped

Features random, hand-applied texturing effects (wide, shallow grooves) over a horizontal grain construction for a natural, rustic appearance.
