Bamboo Flooring - Middletown, NJ
Bamboo is rapidly growing in popularity as a selection for hardwood flooring. At its peak hardness it is harder than oak and about the same hardness as maple, allowing bamboo to perform just as well or even better than most typical species of hardwood floors. Apart from its performance, bamboo has many aspects that set it apart from the usual species of wood and makes it so appealing to so many people!
Bamboo is not even a tree, it is actually a grass. The hollow stems of bamboo have to be cut into thin strips and glued together to make solid boards. These strips can be laid horizontally to show more of the natural grain of bamboo, or vertically to create a denser, more uniform pattern. This unique construction is what gives bamboo flooring its distinctive appearance!
Over 1000 species of bamboo are native throughout Asia and has been used for centuries for tools, furniture, fuel, and homes. Bamboo flooring is made from a large species of bamboo that is grown in the Pacific Rim, primarily in China and Vietnam. Bamboo has been used for floors in Asian homes for centuries, but its popularity has only spiked in Europe and America in the last 20 years.
Bamboo is one of the most environmentally friendly hardwood floors on the market. Typical species of hardwood are harvested when they reach peak hardness between the ages of 50 and 100 years. Bamboo reaches its peak hardness and is harvested at around 3 to 6 years of age! Bamboo will also grow back once it is harvested thanks to its extensive root system. This makes bamboo an extremely efficient and renewable resource that you can feel comfortable about installing in your home!
