Made from strips of bamboo fused under tremendous heat and pressure, strand bamboo flooring is pre-finished with 10 coats in either matte or semi-gloss. Bamboo floors have great strength and durability as well as a resistance to insects and moisture.
Bamboo looks like wood, feels like wood, and cuts like wood. It even smells like wood. And it's much denser than most hardwoods, including maple and oak, so it's ideal for flooring. But bamboo isn't wood at all—it's grass. And because it's grass, bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Bamboo can be harvested after just four or five years. By comparison, it typically takes between 30 and 60 years before hardwood trees can be milled into flooring. Plus, bamboo regenerates after cutting, and the same plant can be harvested again just four or five years later.
Bamboo is attractive, affordable, durable, available in dozens of colours, and it's grown and harvested in an environmentally responsible manner. Contact Flooring Vision today to find out more.
