Sustainable Flooring Choices: Bamboo

Sustainable Flooring Choices: Bamboo

For more than 30 years, Kuhn Flooring Gallery has been providing high quality flooring and exceptional service to customers throughout South Florida. From floor installations in Boca Raton to business flooring solutions in Coral Springs, Kuhn has proven to be a leader in all aspects of residential, commercial, and builder work.

And now, Kuhn is on the leading edge when it comes to sustainable flooring. We offer a wide variety of wood products, including solid hardwood, cork and bamboo.

This Old House magazine had high praise for bamboo flooring, saying, “With lustrous beauty and newfound durability that rival hardwood’s, this sustainable material is now delivering a host of versatile looks.”

In a story by Josh Garskof, the magazine continued on to say, “While bamboo flooring is not exactly new, having been around for two decades, it might as well be. In recent years, advances in manufacturing have enhanced its performance and diversified its appearance. The major change: the introduction of superdense “strand-woven” bamboo, which can be milled into boards that are two and a half times as hard as red oak. They also can be produced in an array of wood-look styles—from the familiar, like maple or walnut, to exotic species, like tigerwood and cumaru—that are quite different from what most people associate with the material. “Strand-woven has changed bamboo’s reputation from an eco product to a major player, delivering the look and durability of Brazilian hardwoods for two-thirds the cost,” says Joel Hirshberg, president of Green Building Supply, which has been selling bamboo floors for 16 years.”

Whether you’re simply looking for something a little different from what all your neighbors have or like the idea of remodeling with sustainability in mind—or just love the price—here’s what you need to know about buying and installing today’s bamboo flooring.

    After having a water pipe break under my house and needing to replace the floor for in my den, I went to Kuhn's on a neighbor's referral. I met with Pelli - who was as patient as one could be dealing with a slightly psychotic woman who, first, had never filed an insurance claim so therefore had no idea that nothing was going to be simple and second, didn't know laminate vs hardwood, ceramic vs porcelain tile, BUT just knew she needed a floor.

    Professional and quick estimate for insurance claim with knowledgable salesman & Fair pricing. Would recommend visiting showroom location to compare materials pricing, as we have not yet gotten to that point in our project.
