    Default Bamboo flooring

    I am thinking about getting some stranded bamboo flooring but I haven't had many positive replies from the flooring companies.

    The flooring is Signature Exotic Print Bamboo: Strand Woven Exotic Rosewood 9/16" x 3 3/4" x 72" Solid Bamboo | Efloors.com



    What are the pros and cons.

    I friend of mine installed them in his home. After only a couple of small dinner parties where women wore high heels the floors were covered in indentations. I want to say he ripped them out and replaced them with a hard wood.

    I'm not a fan. Usually pre-finished with water based finish and scratches easily

    Stay away I used it in one of my rentals and it got so bad I had to replace it with white oak

    We are installing sand-on-site Cumaru flooring. Has a nice grain pattern, extremely hard (that's what she said), and the wood varies quite a bit from piece to piece. I'd check that out.

    Exactly what everyone else said. Way too soft for flooring.

    Yep def too soft.. Father had a pool table on the flooring you can only imagine what happened over time. It also stretches a little more than reg hardwood I believe. Needed some repairs from some minor bunching after seasonal changes

    Google Standed Bamboo reviews and you will get some interesting comments.

    I dropped a pistol case on my kitchen bamboo floor last week and it left 2 giant dents that now get quickly filled with dirt. Never again will I do bamboo.
