Read This Before You Buy Bamboo Flooring!

Bamboo flooring has become popular as a residential wood flooring choice. Virtually unheard of a couple of decades ago, bamboo flooring easily competes with softwoods like spruce and maple and hardwoods like oak and walnut for its share of the floor covering market. But this is a peculiar popularity since this supposed wood flooring is not a wood at all.

What Is Bamboo Flooring?

Bamboo flooring’s source material is one that has been so heavily engineered and impregnated with resins that it is as durable as some of the hardest of the hardwoods. Bamboo is a grass, not a wood. Most bamboo that is sourced for flooring comes mostly from the southern Chinese province of Hunan. Because bamboo flooring does not fit into other flooring categories such as tile, vinyl, or laminate, it is conveniently slotted into the wood flooring category, if only because it looks so much like wood.

Bamboo is quickly renewable. It matures to full size in just three years, at which time it can be cut for use as a floor. Some hardwoods can take up to a half-century to mature. It is because of bamboo floor’s quick renew ability that is considered to be a green or eco-friendly building material.
