Perfect for DIY'ers, our floating bamboo click-lock floors just "click" together - no glue, no nails.
Ambient's floating click lock bamboo flooring with locking edges makes 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 a click lock, snap lock, or snap together bamboo flooring, our click lock floors 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 it Saturday night.
Unlike most other engineered floors, our click lock bamboo can be re-finished 2-3 times. Most other engineered floors have just a thin veneer of wood on top. Conversely, our engineered click-lock floors have a durable and resandable 1/8 inch thick wear layer of strand woven bamboo added to an industry-leading 3-ply, high-density fiberboard (HDF) core for extremely 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 humidity maintenance and details.)
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 40% (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. When installing onto a concrete sub-floor, we strongly recommend using a moisture 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 engineered click lock 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.
