Bamboo flooring has seen a recent surge in popularity over the last several years, and bamboo is an excellent alternative to classic hardwoods like oak or maple. Compared to other woods used for flooring, bamboo is about 2-3 times harder and is much more eco-friendly, costs less, and the top brands have superior air quality features. Due to the increased demand and popularity these days, bamboo is now available in a wide variety of styles and colors, including hewn, wite-brushed, hand-scraped, and many more.

Bamboo flooring is an excellent choice for the eco-friendly customer who is looking for a material that is easily renewable and sustainable. Bamboo is precisely what you are looking for, as it has a breakneck growth cycle. If harvested stalk by stalk instead of clear-cutting in will completely regrow in 5-6 years, making it a swift renewable type of material compared to hardwoods, which take decades to grow.
Bamboo Flooring Installation
When it comes to installing your bamboo floor, you want it done correctly, that is why it is essential to hire an experienced contractor who has extensive knowledge and experience in their installation. Here at OFP we have precisely that as our installers have many years of combined experience in all flooring installations, including bamboo. There are a few different methods of installation that we will discuss below to give our readers a better understanding of the installation process and the various opportunities that may appeal to your situation.
Bamboo Installation On Plywood Subfloor
Bamboo can be installed over a plywood subfloor instead of a floating floor. This type of installation is usually best left to the professional installers as it requires precise methods and specific techniques to ensure proper installation. The plywood itself must be cleaned and leveled correctly, it also needs an underlayment to serve as a cushion for the bamboo floor. The next step is to either glue or nail the floor to the plywood. This is where a professional installer is crucial to the final look of the bamboo floor. Without proper experience often, a floor can be installed incorrectly, which can result in a floor that doesn't meet the customers' expectations and can cause costly repair and re-installation costs. Choosing OFP as your bamboo floor installers will eliminate this as we have assembled one of the best teams in Omaha and the surrounding areas.
Floating Bamboo Floor
A floating bamboo floor is by far the fastest and most cost-effective method for installing bamboo floors. This method is recommended for subfloors that are hard to remove as the bamboo flooring can be installed directly over the existing floor after the pad has been laid over the top of it. Floating bamboo floors come with a tongue and groove design that makes it easy to snap the flooring into place, which helps with the cost of a flooring project as it is much faster than gluing or nailing.
