Serving the greater Greater Heights, Montrose, Upper Kirby, Museum District, and Downtown area, we carry quality bamboo flooring. At Floor Coverings International Houston Heights, we are your local Houston Heights and Garden Oaks bamboo flooring experts. Bamboo floors are popular because they provide the natural feeling of hardwood while benefiting the environment. Bamboo regrows at a much quicker rate than other hardwoods, thus serving as an eco-friendly material. It is naturally a lighter wood, which makes for a unique look and feel.
Different Looks of Bamboo
There are many finishes for your bamboo floor that can create a new look by increasing the gloss or staining the color of the wood. Additionally, the finish will provide protection against scuffs, scratches, and spills. You can also stain the bamboo with darker stains for a more dramatic look. Like other hardwoods, bamboo should not be installed in areas where there are high levels of moisture such as bathrooms or basements.
Pros of Bamboo Flooring
- Bamboo is still sensitive to water like hardwood, but is slightly more water resistant and is less likely to warp.
- Bamboo can be sanded and refinished a few times to get rid of wear and tear.
- Bamboo is low maintenance and more resistant to stains than hardwood.
- Bamboo floors can be extremely durable, depending on the type of bamboo used.
