Why us

  • 1 The Best Quality, Period - Since 2005.

    When leading architects, designers, contractors and homeowners around the world want beautiful, sustainable building products that will stand the test of time, they call on Ambient. If you've done your homework online you already know that we have more than a decade of happy customers and that Ambient was a pioneer in the amazing product known as strand woven bamboo. Our industry-leading lifetime warranty is backed by our hyper-durable Accuseal Ultra® Finish System with aluminum oxide. We use only premium raw materials like Moso bamboo (aged 5-7 years), and the most advanced finish and milling systems in the world.

  • 2 The Health Of Your Family Matters.

    Did you know that Ambient is the only brand that voluntarily tests its products annually for VOCs and off-gassing? In fact, we have achieved a record 18 straight years of results showing "effectively zero" off-gassing. Not only do our floors meet the CARB Phase II standard (most strict indoor air standard in the world), we have also achieved FloorScore® Certification, and go above and beyond by ensuring to comply with the recently added Title VI of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TCSA). Nothing is more important than the safety of our customers and our employees, whose families and friends live, work and play on our floors too.

  • 3 Dye Lot-Specific Ordering.

    You'll notice that all of our hardwood samples have a sticker on the back that specifies which dye lot that sample was cut from. This is because hardwood & bamboo can have widely varying shading differences between lots, just like other natural materials like granite. When you purchase from Ambient, simply mention the dye lot control number on the back of your sample and you are assured that the final floor that arrives at your doorstep will match your sample, instead of some wildly different color. We also will not ship you odd lots, mismatched lots, or mismatched moldings.

  • 4 Janka Hardness Ratings of 5,300+.

    Our strand woven bamboo and eucalyptus have tested as high as 5,300+ lbf on the Janka scale, which is about 2-3 times harder than most wood floors (Northern Red Oak is 1,290 lbf). This translates into a superbly hard floor that will take a lot of punishment from active families, and are highly resistant to pet claws. Combined with our lifetime finish warranty, our floors rarely if ever need to be refinished in a residential setting. Read more about the Janka Hardness Scale.

  • 5 24-Hour Spill Protection.

    Strand woven bamboo is perfectly suited for use in kitchens, and our super tough Accuseal Ultra® finish system provides 24-hour spill protection against puddles. Small water droplets just evaporate with no problems. Our bamboo floors are also extremely dent-resistant compared to other flooring types, so your kitchen floor and children's playrooms won't be all dented up after a few years of active living.

  • 6 Flooring That Can Be Installed In All Climates.

    At Ambient we carefully moisture balance our floors to ensure they can be installed in homes across a wide variety of climates and geographies. Our floors have been installed at the heights of the Rockies all the way down to the marshes near the Everglades, with no problems. As long as reasonable climate control guidelines are followed, Ambient floors can go just about anywhere.

  • 7 30 Day Money Back Guarantee - Buy With Confidence.

    At Ambient we offer customers in the U.S. and Canada a 30-day money back guarantee on all orders and we are dedicated to your complete satisfaction. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order you may return your order within 30 days of delivery. (terms & conditions apply - read them here)

  • 8 The Lowest Prices On The Highest Quality.

    If you add up all costs associated with your building materials including shipping, trim and finish supplies, sales tax, and installation materials, you'll be hard-pressed to find a lower price than ours (especially considering our quality). This is because we sell our brand directly to you, whereas most big box retailers are simply resellers (of brands like Ambient). This allows us to give you a much higher quality product, but at a lower price.

  • 9 The Environment Matters.

    We only have one home - and the earth needs our help. Our Magpanel MGO is the latest and greatest in environmentally friendly walls and subfloors. Our plywood and floors are made from rapidly renewable bamboo & eucalyptus that is harvested from well-managed forests. All of our products are Lacey Act compliant, which ensures they are legally sourced and with minimal damage to the environment. Our FSC certification allows us to source even more eco-friendly bamboo on demand.

  • 10 World's Largest Selection Of Bamboo Moldings, Trim and Stair Pieces.

    We do our best to stock all the matching moldings and trim pieces for all of our floors, and we also sell the installation supplies you'll need, all at very competitive prices that won't inflate your final bill. Your floor, moldings and installation supplies will all arrive in one shipment, which will save you and your installer valuable time driving around purchasing materials.
