Bamboo

Solid Hardwood Flooring vs Engineered hardwood Flooring
Bamboo Flooring
    Pros:
  • Eco Friendly: Made from natural vegetation and is highly renewable!
  • Easy Maintenance: This flooring is relatively easy to maintain, just sweep and vacuum it regularly.
  • Price: Usually priced about the same level as hardwood floors.
  • Durable: certain types can be hard, strong, and very durable.
  • Style: Bamboo can elevate the elegance of a building instantly.
  • Refinishing: Can be sanded down and then reapplying the finishing coats to give it a fresh new look.

    Cons:
  • Manufacturing Emissions: The adhesive used the creation process of bamboo releases volatile organic chemicals (VOC) into the air.
  • Scratches: While easy to maintain it is nearly impossible to keep perfect if used regularly.
  • Humidity: If the floor installed in a very humid area it can cause the planks to plump.
  • No Grading System: Bamboo has no independent system to judge between a grade B product and a grade A one.
