Every flooring option has its place based on the usage and the value of a property the flooring is going in to. There are circumstances in which a waterproof laminate may perform better than a strandwoven bamboo and visa-versa.
Issues that can affect flooring range from the size of the rooms (as some products expand and contract more than others) and the type of heating and cooling that’s being used in the home, for example a property with evaporative cooling may require more expansion joints which can determine the direction the boards should be running.
Having installed, sanded & polished, maintained and repaired hundreds of floors in the ACT over the past 16 years as qualified professionals with building trade backgrounds we can answer any questions and offer advice on flooring choices for your home, rental property or workplace.

Bamboo has had a bad wrap in the ACT flooring industry in the recent years with some retail outlets taking it out of stock and off their product list.
The reason for this is that Bamboo shrinks more than other engineered products and the fact that it is not directly fixed to the substrate means that if expansion joints aren’t placed in the boards will pop open at the joins.
Even in large areas where there is a carefully placed shrinkage joint in the doorway if the room is large enough shrinkage can cause the edge of the flooring to come in from underneath the skirting board or beading exposing a gap.
Bamboo flooring in standard sized rooms running the boards in the right direction with expansion/shrinkage joints in place at the correct junctions is still a good option for clients wanting a very hard wearing engineered floor.
We believe that there is a place for Bamboo flooring but there are some rules that need to be carefully followed.
