Bamboo & Cork Flooring
At Eberhard Carpet One Floor & Home, we know that traditional hardwood isn’t for everyone, which is why we also carry bamboo and cork flooring. With their unique looks and features, they can be the perfect addition to your home.
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!
Cork flooring comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. One of the primary reasons why cork flooring is considered green is because it doesn’t require trees to be cut down. In addition, harvesting cork from trees does not damage them. Some of the benefits of cork flooring include sound absorption, comfort underfoot, and durability.
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!
Cork is another environmentally friendly option for hardwood floors because it does not require the same amount of harvesting as other options like traditional hardwood. Unlike solid hardwood that uses the entire tree, only the exterior of the tree is needed to extract cork for flooring, and the tree is not harmed in the process.
