Bamboo Flooring is an excellent alternative to Hardwood Flooring
Our bamboo flooring - like most bamboo in the world - originates in China and is an excellent alternative to hardwoods.
Bamboo is actually a grass and not a hardwood, but it's just as strong and durable. It's resistant to moisture and insects and, best of all, it's eco friendly! It grows very quickly and reaches full maturity in 3-5 years. Because the root system stays intact upon harvesting, you don't even have to replant.
There is also an ecological argument against bamboo flooring because of deforestation in Asia to grow bamboo. Whole Wood is fanatical about making sure that the flooring we sell in the San Francisco Bay Area doesn't come from these areas.
