Bamboo Flooring - Top Products - Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo continues to grow as a popular "Green" flooring product since it is a renewable resource. Bamboo flooring is made from thin strips of bamboo manufactured to form a solid and durable piece of flooring. Bamboo flooring is also known for its modern aesthetic, comfortability, and easy maintenance.

There are 3 different types of bamboo flooring: horizontal, vertical, and strand woven. Bamboo is offered as both a solid and engineered flooring product, just like other hardwood flooring species. The two traditional colors of bamboo are natural and carbonized. Carbonized bamboo is heated during production and the sugars in the fibers carbonize and turn a light brown color. Bamboo is offered in a variety of stain colors as well, as it continues to grow in popularity as a renewable hardwood flooring product.

An important disclaimer is that even though all bamboo products are marketed as eco-friendly, most are not. Bamboo flooring uses glues and resins to construct the boards, and depending on the brand, may have high levels of Formaldehyde. Most bamboo flooring sold in the United States is shipped from China, resulting in a high carbon footprint regardless of its renewability. The good news is that there are brands containing only small traces of formaldehyde and are manufactured in the United States. The Teragren brand is the most environmentally friendly Bamboo flooring product on the market, and the brand that J.D. Floor Store recommends.

It is also important to note that the "greenest" and most eco-friendly flooring products are the ones which require the least shipping distance. Several domestic products are available with travel distances from tree to mill to your local J.D. Floor Store of less than 1,000 miles (Oak, Maple, Cherry, Ash, Beech, Birch, Pines, etc...). J.D. Floor Store's showroom has samples of each of these different types of flooring on display, and encourages you to check out all of our flooring products to decide which is best for your home or business.
