Bamboo flooring can be made using either a plank type method where the bamboo pieces are laminated together into planks for flooring or it can be woven together to make stranded bamboo natural flooring. Homeowners trying to decide which kind of bamboo floor to choose might be confused as to what the differences in each one are and why they should choose stranded bamboo. Bamboo planks are made by using thin strips of bamboo that are pressed together the either glued or laminated to make the flooring planks. These are strong and durable and an excellent flooring choice. Stranded bamboo natural flooring is made from the excess pieces left over from making the plank flooring. These pieces of bamboo smith & fong plyboo flooring are woven tightly together, coated with an adhesive and then tightly compressed and allowed to set up. The resulting material is then cut into planks to be used as flooring. Stranded flooring is stronger than plank bamboo flooring due in part to the adhesive coating and compression period. However, its main strength comes from the weaving process. As basket weavers can attest, weaving materials together creates a tightly locked bond that is superior in strength to unwoven materials of the same kind.
