Bamboo isn't a graded material like hardwood. While there are lots of different types of bamboo floors on the market, the quality can vary drastically between brands. Even cost isn't a reliable measure of quality. Look online, and you may find poor reviews for even some higher-priced brands.
This means that you must be careful before buying any engineered bamboo flooring. In all reality, customer reviews are the best way to determine the quality of the bamboo brand you're considering. Since they are speaking from personal experience, fellow homeowners will tell it to you straight.
We can't emphasize it enough: doing your homework is important. Thoroughly research the bamboo brands you're considering, and definitely, without a doubt, read customer reviews. Below is a sampling of what Ambient® customers have to say about our strand woven bamboo flooring - happy reading!
