Bamboo Flooring

Bamboo Floors are increasingly being used as an alternative to laminate and hardwood flooring.  Modern engineering techniques allow bamboo to be formed into a wide array of beautiful presentations that have nothing to do with bamboo’s tiki lounge image of the past.  Color, finish options and durability are similar to traditional wood floors.

Why consider bamboo?  Bamboo is actually a rapid growing grass,  not wood, and can be harvested every 5 to 7 years.  In contrast, most woods used for hardwood flooring only reach saleable size after 50-100 years.  Bamboo also regenerates itself without needing to be replanted and requires minimal use of pesticides or fertilizers.

At Realty World, we strongly believe in the importance of initiatives to help the environment.
