Strand bamboo flooring has gained popularity recently due to aesthetics and durability. Most bamboo harvested for commercial use is cultivated and there are concerns about replacement of natural tree forests with bamboo plantations in some areas. Also, as with many short-rotation crops, applications of fertilizer and pesticides to bamboo may be required for optimal growth. Bamboo stems are hollow, so bamboo flooring panels are made from layers of sliced bamboo that have been glued together.
Hardwood flooring consists of solid pieces of wood that are sawn directly from trees, so less processing energy and fewer materials are required. Solid hardwood flooring also provides more material that can be sanded off in future refinishing steps; the hard surface layer of bamboo flooring is relatively thin and so it cannot be sanded and re-finished like solid wood. Our bamboo floors match perfectly with any decor, adding a classic or contemporary accent that won’t go out of style.

Considered a renewable resource because it grows so quickly, a freshly harvested bamboo plant only takes about seven years to reach maturity again. On the one hand, there’s natural bamboo, light in color (almost blonde), which boasts twice the stability of red oak (America’s most popular flooring). Note that solid bamboo is stronger than engineered, which consists of multiple layers.
