We are available to our customers in the Mississauga area for in-home consultations to answer any questions and to provide bamboo samples.
Our flooring experts are trained in the products and installation of many different types of eco-friendly flooring. We support our customers’ desire to go green in these earth-conscious times, so we are prepared to assist you every step of the way in creating a more earth-friendly home or office.
Advantages & Disadvantages
Of course, the main advantage of bamboo is that it has the longevity of traditional hardwood, while still being sustainable and environmentally friendly. Bamboo is described as sustainable because it has a much higher regrowth rate than other timber, so harvesting it for flooring has less of an impact on the environment. Bamboo flooring is also very easy to clean, and offers a sleek, modern look to any room.
However, bamboo flooring can be prone to scratches. So, if you’re considering having bamboo installed in a room that experiences a high level of traffic, then make sure it gets sealed properly so that you won’t have to worry about frequent scuffing.
Bamboo flooring comes in a wide range of colors. It is known for being available in a somewhat dramatic range of shades, from nearly-black shades to the lightest tones. Because we are backed by premier manufacturers, we have access to all of the best name brands for bamboo flooring.
