Say “I Do” to Bamboo¬†
Bamboo is a member of the grass family. It grows rapidly, maturing in only four years, making it readily available to harvest. And, like grass, cutting bamboo does not kill the plant. An extensive root system remains intact, allowing for rapid regeneration. This quality makes bamboo an ideal plant for areas threatened with the devastating ecological effects of soil erosion.

Bamboo is composed of fibers that do not absorb moisture as easily as wood. It is 27% harder than oak and 13% harder than maple, making it an exceptionally durable and stable flooring material. Bamboo is also better for your health! As with cork, bamboo is being specified more and more often in response to rising concerns about poor indoor air quality, allergens, off-gassing, and the presence of PVC’s often associated with traditional building materials.¬†

Why Choose Cork?
Cork is obtained from the bark of the cork oak tree. This bark is made up of millions of tiny air pockets that create a resilient cushiony surface resulting in the feeling that you are ‘walking on air’. Grown on farms and harvested every 9-11 years, the benefits lie not in felling these trees for their lumber, but in keeping them alive and in production for generations to come.

Because of cork’s natural tendancy to “bounce back”, indentation marks left by furniture are less noticeable than on wood, carpet, or vinyl floors. Cork is also fire resistant and will not spread flames or produce toxic gases on combustion. When it comes to the environment, cork and bamboo are a perfect combination. Renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable, both are harvested with no harm to their natural habitat and produce materials that promote a healthy eco-friendly environment.
