Every situation is different, but in order to remain in compliance with the manufacturer’s warranty, it is the installer’s responsibility to accurately check the material upon delivery and to measure and document the site conditions and materials before, during and after installation.
To obtain updated information, it’s best to contact your bamboo manufacturer, who may be able to provide you with updated meter instructions that will help you calibrate your meter and collect accurate readings with the materials you are working with.
I had particle board for underlayment, and bamboo is prone to split if you don’t predrill the holes, so I chose to float ~400 sq. ft. of solid bamboo instead of trying to nail it into the particleboard. Many people are surprised to learn that woven bamboo flooring is actually two times stronger than domestic oak. Under extreme pressure, strands of bamboo are compressed to form one solid product. But I’d say the most important thing to do is read through their documentation and make sure if you’re going to try it, that your flooring meets their main specifications before you go all out. 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).

Harvesting bamboo does not kill it: When shoots are cut, the roots are left intact so new shoots can grow. Please note, quite busy as a full time flute maker, I am not a distributor of bamboo flooring. We cannot afford to replace our flooring every 10 years so it is important for me to know how to properly care for this gorgeous flooring. It’s also worth noting that bamboo flooring can come in quite a variety of styles.
With high sustainability and environmentally sound origins, bamboo floor coverings have become the ideal choice for those looking to adorn their homes or workplaces with the beauty of a hardwood floor or laminate flooring whilst in keeping with increasing environmental issues.
