What are the diffrences between bamboo flooring, and wood flooring?

bamboo flooring Add comments

can you also give pro’s and con’s of both?
thanks.

Wood flooring is made directly from trees, while bamboo is actually a fast-growing grass. Some say it is even harder than hardwood! Bamboo comes in various qualities – from bamboo laminate, to the more expensive, woven and carbonized bamboo flooring.

There are several pages discussing the pros, cons and varieties of wood and bamboo flooring listed on the following Quick Click Green Flooring Guide.

    Bamboo is a grass wood flooring comes from tress.

    Pro’s of Bamboo-
    – Can be harvested every 15 years so it is very sustainable
    – Looks great
    – Is harder than oak

    Cons
    – Many people complain of bamboo scratching easily
    – Their are some good bamboo options out there but more than half is junk

    Pros of hardwood
    – Lasts 100+ years
    – Easy to maintain
    – Comes in a wide variety

    Cons of Hardwood
    – None

    If considering bamboo check out Teragren, it is amongst the best.
