Stranded bamboo flooring is created by heating long strips of bamboo, weaving them together, and compressing them into a durable floor with pressure and heat.
The result of this process is a woven and stranded bamboo floor that can rival even the most boisterous pets and kids. In light of this fact, it easily rivals traditional hardwood floors, as a durable, eco-friendly, and cost-effective option.
The contemporary process of producing stranded woven bamboo floors have helped to improve their easy of installation. Modern-day manufacturing of woven bamboo floors have enabled the production of a woven bamboo floor with an easy to install tongue and groove system.
What's more, you also have a few installation options available to you. Bamboo floors can be installed not only as floating floors but can also be fixed directly to the sub-floor with a suitable flooring adhesive.
A very good selling point about stranded bamboo flooring is how it serves as an excellent eco-friendly alternative to traditional hard wood floors. In the midst of rampant deforestation, with the depletion of our ozone layer, stranded bamboo flooring is a clear winner. After all, in light of the gradual rise in global temperatures and rapid melting of the polar ice caps - the need for an eco-friendly alternative is undeniable.
The production of traditional hard wood floors necessitates the clearing of large areas of old growth forest. Once a specified grid of old growth forest is harvested, lumberers are unable to return to that area for another 30 years when the trees have had time to regrow. In contrast, with daily growth of as much as 12 inches for some breeds of bamboo, this replenishible resource can be harvested every 3-6 years.
To conclude, stranded bamboo flooring is a viable eco-friendly option to traditional wood floors. In addition to being easy to install, it's durable and cost effective. Its also a highly versatile flooring option that can cater to a wide variety of tastes for any home.
