Quick Facts about Bamboo Flooring Preparation
If you’re in the market for flooring, you have a number of options to consider. However, if you want something particularly unique, your best bet may be bamboo. It’s a unique look that will set your floors apart, while leaving you free to enjoy them instead of constantly providing maintenance. There is a lot of bamboo flooring information available out there, but keep reading for some quick facts about their installation.
Like with so many options out there, installing bamboo floors may be best left to the professionals. However, if you’re particularly handy, you can probably install them yourself and save a lot of money. They can be nailed or glued to wood or concrete sub-floors.
The method you choose will affect how you install your floors. Both concrete and wood demand different things when you intend on putting flooring over them and you’ll need to provide the proper preparation.
You or your hired help will want to install with color in mind. Like other natural products, bamboo can vary widely in its color. Some of this can’t be helped, of course, but in order to keep a smooth flow of colors, you or your installer will want to work from a few boxes of bamboo at once. This way as colors change in one box, there will be more consistent choices in the other.
