Morning Star Bamboo - 5/8" x 3-3/4" Prefinished Strand Carbonized Bamboo Flooring - 30 Year Warranty

Morning Star Bamboo Flooring is one of the best bamboo floors on the market today. It is produced from old growth bamboo reeds that are at least 4 years old, thereby increasing hardness. Morning Star Bamboo Flooring creates a naturally beautiful and ecologically friendly product that evokes a feeling of luxury.

Quick Highlights:
- Real Bamboo
- Eco-Friendly
- Low Emission Adhesive
- Glue or Nail Down
- Premium Finish
- 30 Year Warranty

Carbonized
Steamed bamboo, caramelizing the sugar within to change its color.

Strand
Twice as hard as oak, strand bamboo is an optimal choice for busy homes when durability is needed to stand up to the wear and tear of family foot traffic, active kids and even pets. 

To make strand bamboo, shredded bamboo fibers are compressed under extreme heat and pressure.  This manufacturing process yields flooring that is even harder and more dense than traditional bamboo floors. Available in a variety of colors to complement and décor, all Morning Star strand bamboo products are finished with premium coating and backed by a 30 year warranty.

And, since bamboo is a naturally sustainable grass that re-grows spontaneously after harvest, you can feel good about making an environmentally friendly flooring decision.


It's simple...
Eco-Friendly. Beautiful look. Beautiful price.

Comments about Morning Star 5/8" x 3-3/4" Strand Carbonized Bamboo:

The installation of this flooring took 3 times longer than expected because our contractor had a difficult time finding a piece that did not have a defect on it. He's very meticulous and takes pride in his work and it has been a huge disappointment that we really didn't get the quality product we expected. We invested a lot of money in our kitchen renovation and now we'll be lucky if we can show off a kitchen we can be proud of.

Comments about Morning Star 5/8" x 3-3/4" Strand Carbonized Bamboo:

Installed in entry, dining room and kitchen. Be careful not to drop any tools on it, dents easily. finished chips off easily if you accidently hit it while installing it. You also can put nails to close to the end of the board as it will split the tongue. I would never install this product again.

      Comments about Morning Star 5/8" x 3-3/4" Strand Carbonized Bamboo:

      The floor is gorgeous! And I love it. However, my installer said it was quite difficult to install because it is so hard that the cleats curl up and split the wood or create little buckle spots. The strand characteristic of it also means that it splits when installing. This is from a company who installs floors for a living and had install bamboo floors before! The other issue was that the boards weren't all milled the same. Some were a little smaller or had nicks out of the underside which caused issues.
      I am confident that it was the flooring which caused the issues and not the installer because I let the first installer go because he was having difficulty with it and I hired a floor installer who had come highly recommended from two sources who had used his company to install hardwood floors in their homes. He and his crew had the same difficulties. He told me, "I wanted to cry a couple times because of the difficulty." So, if you buy this flooring, just know that it is HARD to install and there may be some imperfections as a result. And as a result...the installation cost me way more than it should have.

        I have a small kitchen and was concerned that even a color in a darker range would make it look smaller but that did not happen. Project turned out wonderful and I love it. Have to have special wood cleaner but that is not a problem. Really love the look of the bamboo finish. Only con was it was too hard of a wood to nail. If there is a special nail gun out there for bamboo maybe that would work but probably not worth the price of renting it or buying. Our contractor did not have equipment to work with bamboo but did a great job installing it anyway.

          Comments about Morning Star 5/8" x 3-3/4" Strand Carbonized Bamboo:

          After laying about 1200 sq ft of this product, I can't say that I would recommend it. Too many variations in boards led to gaps that just could not be hidden. We went through a lot of boards to get them to match up. We mixed boxes as recommended for color, but didn't expect the many variations in board thickness and width. Originally, I wanted site finished real hardwood floors, but we simply could not afford it. Now I wish I had waited to save the $$, and live with the horrid multiple styles of laminate that the previous owner had installed throughout the entire house. IMHO, nothing beats good old-fashioned hardwood floors. If you do go ahead with these floors, also note that the adhesive used does contain phenol formaldehyde (per the current MSDS sheet posted by LL)...so while making cuts be sure to work in a ventilated area and wear the proper dust mask.

          Also, if I may...I was surprised to see so many H-Joints in the customer photos posted. The installation instructions make it clear with a big red circle and a red slash across it that those are a big no-no. Take the time to install the random pattern example they provide - especially with prefinished floors which highlight every single seam.

              I had this floor installed 6 months ago. Acclimated for 3 weeks, have kept the humidity in normal range, and have only cleaned the floors with bellawood floor cleaner. I have noticed that some of the boards are not smooth anymore, you can see the strands and are rough to the touch. What could be causing this problem

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish.

                A:

                To restore the original shine of a solid bamboo floor a screen and re-coat may be needed or a complete refinishing. A professional sand and finish expert would have to make the determination on site on which sanding process will be needed or which can be done to restore the floors shine. .

                Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage a wood floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability.
