Horizontal bambooBamboo is an excellent alternative to hardwood or other durable surface products.  Because grasses grow more quickly than trees, these materials are often considered more renewable than wood-based floors. However, for true eco-friendly floors, be sure to look for natural grass materials that are manufactured without the use of formaldehyde or harmful chemical finishes.

Naturally moisture-resistant, bamboo is ideal for San Francisco coastal areas where damp weather can cause unwanted expansion and contraction. It is highly wear-resistent, easy to clean, and can be refinished for long-lasting good looks.  Available in a range of colors, widths, and finishes, bamboo is equally suitable for residential and commercial applications and can be installed easily over existing subfloors.

Bamboo is manufactured into several styles.The most common are the laminated planks, with either horizontal or vertical grain orientations. "Grainless" or strand bamboo is made from shredded bamboo fibers, pressed together with a chemical binder, resulting in an entirely different appearance and a very durable surface. Engineered bamboo, like engineered hardwood, consists of a bamboo veneer applied over a core or substrate, resulting in a strong and resilient product that can be installed virtually anywhere.Vertical grain bamboo
