Bamboo is a member of the grass family, so it isn't a hardwood floor installation in the sense of a maple or oak tree. However, because bamboo is very wood-like it can be cut into long, narrow planks which are laminated together into larger boards but a nice, earth friendly flooring product in which we specialize.
Bamboo is a reliable flooring product & can make a nice flooring installation in your Eugene, Springfield, or Lane County home market but only if it's well made by an experienced manufacturer who uses quality stalks, adhesives and milling equipment. Careful oversight throughout the process ensures optimum performance. Quality Adhesives, a formaldehyde-free adhesive, all of the strips should be cut perfectly and laminated tightly together, ensuring minimum opportunity for movement and delamination. Bamboo flooring should adhere to specific precise milling tolerances for a quality flooring product and should be installed by a qualified hardwood floor installer. If dried properly, your product will be more stable and suitable for a wide range of climates. A quality Bamboo Floor should be pre-finished with a high-tech aluminum oxide enhanced acrylate urethane system with a hardened acrylic anti-scratch topcoat that outperforms most finishes in abrasion and scratch-resistance tests. Finally, a Bamboo Floor should be installed by a quality installer. O’Brien Floors have installed many bamboo floors and would be pleased to share that same quality installation in your home or business in Eugene, Springfield, & areas surrounding Lane County.
