For many of us, when we hear the term bamboo flooring, a tropical bungalow comes to mind. Because the use of natural materials is currently hot in home construction, bamboo flooring is a solid choice for many ecologically conscious people. What’s more, the subtle differences between bamboo and hardwood provide homes with bamboo flooring a sense of individual personality. In further comparison to traditional hardwood flooring, bamboo comes out slightly ahead as being more resistant to water damage, stains, and warping. Depending on the size of bamboo planks used, splitting can occur in very dry or very wet environments.
If, for example, the bamboo flooring is installed in a humid area, the planks will plump up (expand). If bamboo isn’t allowed to mature and harden before being harvested (in some cases, as early as 3 months!), the flooring will look great at first but will be soft and non-durable. Typically, un-carbonized and strand-woven bamboo flooring is harder and more durable, while darker bamboo represents a weakened structure and general softness.
