With its lustrous looks and amazing durability, bamboo has become a promising substitute for wood. In recent years, advances in manufacturing technology have strengthened its performance and diversified its appearance. Today’s bamboo flooring is often twice as hard as red oak and comes in a range of looks that mimic wood – from traditional maple or walnut to digital printed and hand-scraped styles. AA Floors & More Ltd., a renowned name in the flooring industry, has an extensive collection of premium-grade bamboo flooring materials to meet our customers’ varied needs and tastes. Whether you want a standard horizontal and vertical grain or an antique hand-scraped texture, we have it all.
Our workers and technicians are some of the best-trained in the industry, and can install, repair and restore all types of bamboo flooring in Toronto. They use only the best products, equipment and technology to work on all types of projects, including high-traffic areas like stairways, kitchens, hallways, lobbies, elevator doorways and reception areas. At AA Floors, no job is too small or big. No matter the size or complexity of your project, we have the skills to do it perfectly.
The perfect combination of durability, beauty, eco-friendliness and affordability, solid strand bamboo is a popular flooring choice among homeowners and commercial builders alike. It is available in handscraped, brushed, flat, and other unique surface textures, and can be refinished up to five times. It can be nailed or glued down (even on concrete) and there are no run limits.
Often harder than traditional wooden floors (3 times harder than oak), it comes in a variety of surface styles and can be refinished up to five times. It features a click-lock groove system for fast, easy installation. However, since it’s prone to shrinkage in wet conditions, you can only use it for indoor environments with stable year-around humidity.
Each plank of T&G bamboo flooring has one long and one short side with a protruding edge (called a tongue), and one long and one short side with a rebated edge (called a groove). The tongues fit into the grooves perfectly to create a seamless and smooth bamboo floor. It can be nailed, screwed or glued directly to any subfloor that has been prepared and checked.
If you want tough and easy-to-install flooring, click-lock engineered bamboo is your best bet. It has a high dimensional stability and isn't susceptible to varying humidity. Its wear layer is up to three times harder than regular wood or bamboo floors and can be refinished up to two times (if the wear layer is at least 2 mm).
Available in a range of colours and surface styles, classic bamboo is a popular flooring choice among today’s homeowners. However, it's much softer than strand-woven bamboo floors, making it susceptible to dents and scratches. It may be suitable for bedrooms and private workspaces but not for high-traffic areas like the kitchen or living room.
When installing floors in your new home or replacing an old one, you’ve got two options – hire a professional flooring company or doing it yourself (DIY). Even with modern peel-and-stick flooring tiles, there are certain aspects of flooring installation that require a professional. From underlayment and baseboards to floor mouldings and trims, there are many minor details a layperson may not understand.
Here’s a look at why you should hire a professional flooring company like AA Floors.
While some traditional varieties of bamboo flooring are soft and susceptible to scratching and denting, modern, high-quality ones are more durable than the hardest hardwoods. For example, strand-woven bamboo flooring is over three times more durable than vertical or horizontal bamboo flooring. Modern manufacturing procedures involve steel hydraulic presses that use intense heat and pressure to create a dense block, from which the planks are milled.
This may be true for low-price bamboo flooring with a poor finish, but top-quality floors with multiple layers of aluminum oxide finish are entirely scratch resistant. Our premium-grade bamboo flooring features a multilayer, water-based topcoat that helps it stand up against daily wear and tear.
Recently there has been a great deal of concern over high levels of formaldehyde emissions coming from low-cost flooring, which can cause serious health problems. Generally, the lower the bamboo flooring quality, the higher chance of VOC emission. When choosing flooring for your home, do your research and check third-party formaldehyde test results to protect your family’s health.
Depending on its price, quality and Janka hardness rating, bamboo flooring can be an excellent choice for commercial setups. Those with a Janka hardness rating of over 5000+ lbs. can effectively hold up in high-traffic areas.
Bamboo flooring can be refinished two to five times, depending on its type and quality. This is best done by an experienced flooring professional.
The species used for bamboo flooring is Moso, which is not on the menu for pandas. Pandas eat over 30 different types of bamboo, most of which is found in the highlands in the Pacific Rim. The Pandas will not go hungry because of bamboo harvested for flooring.
