Bamboo Flooring and Radiant Heat
Radiant heat sub-floors, like bamboo flooring, are eco-frienly and popular
Radiant heat is installed underneath flooring and rises through all kinds of floor coverings, including carpet, tile, concrete and hardwood. It heats the air quickly and is warm underfoot - a nice benefit for people who live in cold climates. Unfortunately, constant exposure to radiant heat often dries out traditional hardwood floors. This not only affects appearance, but it also causes the floor boards to expand and contract, warping the floor and creating an uncomfortable, uneven surface.
Bamboo, unlike traditional flooring woods such as oak and maple, is actually a dense grass that can withstand repeated exposure to heat, cold and moisture without buckling. This makes radiant bamboo flooring the ideal solution for homeowners and businesses desiring the benefits of radiant heat with the attractive look of hardwood floors.
