Perfect for DIY'ers, our floating bamboo click-lock floors just "click" together - no glue, no nails.
Click-Lock bamboo flooring generally comes in two options: solid planks and engineered planks. While both of these options provide for fast and easy installation, engineered planks provide more dimensional stability, while solid click lock planks are only recommended for environments with very stable indoor humidity. Click lock bamboo floors come with interlocking profiles on all 4 sides of the planks that snap together to make installation a breeze.
No glue, no nails. This snap together bamboo flooring just "clicks" together and look exactly like tongue-and-groove flooring once installed.
Also known as snap lock or snap together bamboo flooring, our click lock bamboo floors are perfect for do-it-yourself'ers. You just cut the boards to the right size and snap them into place. No extra tools, virtually no clean-up, and no waiting for glue to dry. You can finish installing your floor on Saturday afternoon and host a party on Saturday night.
Unlike most other engineered flooring brands, our floors can be re-finished 2-3 times. Most other engineered floors have just a thin veneer of wood on top. Conversely, our engineered floors have a thick wear layer of strand woven bamboo added to a multi-layer core for high dimensional stability. We have multiple styles of our click bamboo including Strand Woven Natural, Strand Woven Carbonized, and other stains, that can be used over concrete or plywood subfloors or in basements. These floors are also humidity friendly, so they work great in beach, lake or riverfront homes. (See installation instructions for climate control recommendations.)
Note that our click bamboo floors are as easy to take apart as they are to put together - just "unclick" the boards and you're done.
Whether you choose a tongue-and-groove profile or bamboo flooring with a locking/snap together flooring system, you'll need to be sure of a few things before beginning installation. First, let the product adjust to the humidity of the room it will be installed in for at least 72 hours prior to beginning work. On a dry winter day when your home's heating system is on, bamboo locking flooring can shrink if the relative humidity drops below 35% (as with any wood floor). Consider using a humidifier to expand the wood to its natural size before proceeding.
Make sure the sub-floor you will be installing onto is clean, dry, structurally sound and level. Don't install on existing carpet or padding unless it is firm and not compressible. When installing onto a concrete sub-floor you must use a 3 in 1 vapor barrier. Full installation instructions and recommendations can be found on our website. With just a few simple precautions, even the most inexperienced homeowner can install our floating bamboo floors!
Below is a quick write-up of the two types of locking bamboo floors that are currently sold on the market. Please note that solid all-the-way-through locking bamboo flooring is only meant to be installed in very stable indoor environments, as extreme fluctuations in humidity can lead to issues with dimensional stability and increased risk of shrinkage. We also carry multiple engineered snap lock bamboo flooring styles.
SOLID CLICK-LOCK BAMBOO FLOOR (is “floated”)
- Solid wood
- Can be refinished up to 5 times
- Easy installation
- Only suitable for very stable interior humidity conditions due to increased shrinkage effect when humidity levels decrease by 15-20%
- Maximum recommended runs if interior humidity varies more than 15% throughout the year: 15 ft across widths (tangentially) and 25 ft lengthwise (longitudinally)
ENGINEERED CLICK-LOCK BAMBOO FLOOR (is “floated”)
- High dimensional stability
- Can be refinished up to 2 times
- Easy installation
- Maximum recommended runs if interior humidity varies more than 15% throughout the year: 25 ft across widths (tangentially) and 45 ft lengthwise (longitudinally)
