In Madison Bamboo flooring has been growing in popularity. While often grouped with hardwood floors, bamboo floors are actually made from a species of grass called “Moso.”
Most bamboo flooring is created from stalks of bamboo that are four to five years old. These stalks are then sliced into strips and woven or laid into planks. Learn more about bamboo and other types of flooring in Madison from the experts at Floor Coverings International!
Conservationists like bamboo for its ability to replenish itself quickly, giving bamboo flooring a “green” quality that most hardwood floors don’t have. Bamboo ranks quite high on the Janka hardness scale.
Despite its strength, bamboo flooring can be cut relatively easily using only a compound miter or hand saw. It is also adaptable to a wide number of surfaces and can be fixed to plywood or even concrete.
While traditionally light colored, you can stain bamboo flooring to match almost any décor. Some homeowners opt for a dark, espresso look, while others like the bright, natural feel of the original material. As it ages, it will take on a patina that only adds to its charm.
