Can I use Redgard with Bamboo Flooring?

bamboo flooring 2 Comments »

I am installing bamboo flooring in my house and I have a plywood subfloor. I was told I can use Redgard to waterproof before I install the bamboo flooring. I did some research and could not find anything on this. Is this true? Can I use redgard on the plywood before I install the bamboo flooring?

Red Guard is excellent for tiling. But I m not sure as to why you d need to do this. If your gluing the bamboo down, I m not sure if the wood glue is compatible w/ the Red guard as far as not reacting to each other and causing the glue not to stick.. If your nailing the flooring down then your not doing anything as far as water proofing or using it as a moisture barrier since your driving nails/staples thru it..And then you still should have a felt ot rosin paper under the wood to keep the sub flooring and bamboo from rubbing together. Although the Red Guard may act in this way. So at 40 $ a gallon and 120$ or so for a big bucket , I d question this practice. Plus to properly put it down you need 2 coats ..E mail me thru my avatar if you have any questions GL

Rejuvenate Floor Restorer on Laminate Flooring

bamboo flooring No Comments »

We installed laminate wood flooring in our hall, kitchen and family room. Shortly thereafter, our dishwasher overflowed and the shine never came back on our flooring. We saw your commercial and my hubby decided to try the floor products and WOW, the floors look brand new. We got such compliments and our floors are so shiny and rich looking. Thanks so much for making such a great product. We recommend it to all our friends with wood or laminate flooring. We don’t normally write about products but this really protected a big investment in our house. Keep up the good work.

We put Bamboo in our house a year ago. we like it. we have a small Terrier, and we see some scratches in the floor. 1st thought "uhoh" not a good choice. But then we have some friends though that have a Hard wood floor… noticed it also has scratches from their dogs.

bamboo flooring 1 Comment »

i’ve read that it is nice as a flooring material. where can i find details about it? design, cost?, where to find? i am in manila.

You look for the Alfonso Farm in Cainta. They sell bamboo furniture and can surely supply you with bamboo floorings, too.

How can I stop my new bamboo flooring from buckling up on me ? tonge and groove ,mastic glue down on concrete.

bamboo flooring 1 Comment »

I followed manufactures instructions , cleaned concrete floor pryer to installing. opened boxes, stacked criss cross, waited two day for flooring to adjust to room temp. trowel down with mastic glue. checked floor for leveling (o.k.) Should I have left room for expantion between the tounge and grooves ?

Did you use a block seal on the slab to prevent moisture from bleeding through? You didn’t mention that in your preliminary list of steps you took. The slab should have been sealed first before anything was done. Where you leave a 1/4 inch gap is around the outer perimeter of the room where your baseboards would be placed over that gap…not between the boards.
