Engineered bamboo flooring is a great choice if you are looking for a wider or longer plank than usual.  Bamboo flooring is dimensionally stable, but by adding the engineered element, it means that the planks can be much wider.

Here are some of the things you might want to know before you choose engineered bamboo flooring:


What is engineered bamboo flooring?

Engineered bamboo flooring is made with a layer of strand woven bamboo on the surface and plywood underneath.  This gives it extra stability. Once installed, the final plank will look just like solid flooring, as the surface is still made from bamboo.


How is it flooring made?

The surface of the flooring is made from strand woven bamboo, which is extremely durable, and over twice as hard as Oak flooring.  The base is made from plywood, which runs perpendicular to the bamboo top layer. 



How can I install engineered bamboo flooring?

Engineered bamboo flooring has a click fitting system which help to make the installation process more straightforward. It can easily be installed by either fixing it into position (glue down, screw down or nail down), or by laying it loosely over an underlay.  For more information on installation methods, please read How to Install Bamboo Flooring.
