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.

Bamboo flooring typically comes in 3-foot or 6-foot lengths and with or without the distinctive bamboo 'nodes' visible in the grain.

Because it is a natural, renewable resource, bamboo flooring is considered by many experts and homeowners to be the logical flooring choice of the future.

Bamboo is technically a grass, not a wood product, and it can be harvested every 5 years. As a result, no forests are destroyed to make bamboo floors, and homeowners can count on a reliable supply of products - and at stable prices - for the forseeable future.

Choosing bamboo flooring products is an environmentally and ecologically responsible choice, and they will endure for as long as and longer than products made of hardwood.

Studies have shown that flooring made from bamboo measures up against and even exceeds the most popular, stable and durable hardwood varieties, at a price that's about the same as that for premium wood floors.
