At the top is a slice of genuine wood, sometimes referred to as the "veneer layer." This is what gives it the beauty we've come to expect from wood floors. Underneath are three or more layers of authentic wood combined with a little resin. The layers are placed in a crosswise position which is what gives stability. Engineered floors can be installed with the floating floor technique where the pieces click together and hover over the subfloor.
While bamboo is often considered hardwood but it comes from the plant and not wood. It is as tough as hardwoods and is a little more water-resistant. Like wood flooring, bamboo adds value to a home and can be refinished.
Bamboo flooring appeals especially to those who are environmentally sensitive. It’s not only natural but is also renewable. To put it into perspective, a tree often takes 20 or more years to reach maturity. This plant, however, can be harvested in as little as five or six years.
