Objectively one of the best joining systems available, Uniclic ensures quick, easy and versatile installation. Conversely, unlike many aspects of interior design, floors made of bamboo are neither a fad nor a trend, a quality that makes them a timeless addition. Bamboo is a moisture resistant material that will not warp or splinter when exposed to daily temperature changes. To keep your bamboo floors free from damage or signs of wear in your home, ensure that you follow our guides to maintenance and cleaning. Well, there are honestly bad reviews (aka written badly 😛 ) And I don’t doubt there’s the possibility of badly made planks in certain batches. Prices for solid-bamboo flooring usually range between about $2 and $4 a square foot.
The new apt I’m living in now also has very similar flooring (I can tell immediately when I step foot somewhere now!) and I love it for the same reasons I love the flooring we put down: it’s handsome, solid footfeel, easy to clean and near impossible to destroy.
Bamboo flooring will enhance the look of any staircase such as the elegant caramel toned bamboo used here. It is the rapid growth and natural regeneration properties of bamboo that are primarily responsible for the green” reputation for bamboo. We will probably put this in our kitchen to replace old ugly vinyl (not our doing!) in our house.
It is distinguished by a more compressed grain appearance and is harder than Traditional Bamboo. Manufactured bamboo floors are typically made available in planks with either vertical- or horizontal-grain orientation. Humidity control is the single most contributing factor to bamboo failure in a home with appropriate” installation. Natural bamboo color is similar to that of beech; bamboo must go through a carbonizing process (using steam under controlled pressure and heat) for darker stains. Due to the excessive moisture present in a full bath we cannot recommend any of our solid natural flooring or laminate products for this application, I would suggest one of our engineered or vinyl Tranquility products. This makes bamboo a fantastic option for people renting premises because when renters move on they can easily dismantle the floor and take it with them. When we were ready to install carpeting, we had HD and a flooring company draw up bids.
Pros: claim of waterproofness, toughness, and the comparative ease with which planks could be cut and snapped to length with a utility knife during the flooring process, compared to the need for a saw to work with wood laminate. MOSO® offers a full array of bamboo accessories for a sophisticated finishing touch to the MOSO® floor of your choice. Naturally pale yellow in color, Bamboo Flooring has a tight, straight grain, sometimes interspaced with knuckles formed from joints on the stem. This flooring is absolutely gorgeous and has changed the complete look of our house. Your comments about the installation were spot on, including the tip on gently tapping the courses while held at an angle. Furthermore, unlike hardwood that has to be replanted, as bamboo is a grass the root system stays intact when harvested, and will grow again contributing to its eco-friendly nature. Similarly to hardwood timber flooring, bamboo floors can also be damaged by water.
