Bamboo laminate flooring Usually bamboo is preferred for higher quality projects a natural material is preferred, but high-end laminate can mimic many different types of wood, even if they lack their natural shine. Bamboo is a woody grass species that grows very fast and is used to manufacture a wide variety of products, including fabric and floor. The bamboo stalks are crushed separately and then recombined in tabular form, which can be either interconnected or glued down. The way bamboo is re-attached and treatments has been to change the color and durability, allowing a large number of styles and options.
Bamboo laminate flooring is a flat plastic, similar to vinyl, with a top layer that is used to mimic other types of soil. One of the most common types of laminate flooring is imitating wood, most often oak, maple or other popular wood color. The leaves are glued in place to resemble planks then flattened to remove air bubbles. Laminates are generally more available than bamboo throughout the United States.
Such as wood, bamboo is softer than laminate, and is one of the softest flooring options available. This means you can be scratched and dented the bamboo laminate flooring, which has a hard surface to resist surface damage more easily. This makes laminate more resistant to scratches than all woods in general. Both laminates and bamboo are also resistant to moisture.
