Benefits of Bamboo Floors

Hardwood Flooring made from Bamboo
Using bamboo is a cheaper version of hardwood flooring. Bamboo floorings are fire-resistant and they last for centuries. One of the reasons by bamboo is cheaper is that is grows very fast and therefore cutting it down does not upset the eco-balance. In fact you can expect to pay up to 50% less for bamboo compared to other hardwood types.
The more heat bamboos get, the darker and softer they become. Opt for lighter vertical bamboo flooring. They look more elegant and are hardier. But if you have pets and still want cheap hardwood flooring, consider stranded bamboo flooring as an alternative. Bamboo hardwood floors can either be glued or nailed.
