Morning Star Bamboo- 5/8" x 3-3/4" Prefinished Solid Golden Zebra Strand 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

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.

                Installed 230 sq ft and had 1 very slightly blemmished piece. Install took longer than planned and floor was tough to keep in place. Overall o would use this product through out the house. I cannot yet comment on durability. Tongue and groove fit was flawless.

                    Had a different brand for this job, chipped easy a lot of defective pieces in boxes and hard to install. Lumber liquidators provided a quality product at a lower price. Not one defective piece and install went very good. All the pieces fit together perfectly.

                        A:

                        Bamboo flooring is very much like hardwood flooring and performs well in climate controlled rooms with temperatures of 60°-80° F and indoor humidity levels of 30% - 50%.

                        A:

                        Yes, bamboo is acceptable for installation in a powder room. It is recommend to put a throw rug by the sink because an excess water can damage wood. You will need to wipe up any water that sit on the floor as soon as possible. However a full bathroom that is showered in everyday may not be the best location for bamboo. Often there is too much water on the floor or humidity that can be absorbed into the flooring resulting in board edge cupping. Resilient and Tile floors are a better choice for these areas.

                        A:

                        To restore the original shine of a 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.

                        A:

                        For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.

                        Bellawood Cleaner works well, find here - http://www.lumberliquidators.com/ll/s/flooring-molding-tools-accessories/floor-care-products

                        In addition, Bona Kemi makes a decent hardwood flooring cleaner.

                        Do not use oil-type cleaner of any kind.

                      I have floor heating, under concrete, can I glue this on top of the concrete? Would it warp the wood?

                      I would like to use Golden Zebra Strand Bamboo in a bathroom/spa, but for wall accenting (for 'warmth' of wood) and not on the floor. The room will be humid, and the product glued to the 'green' drywall board. I'm somewhat concerned about the expansion spacing as it would be nice to butt up against the tile floor. Does the product come pre-finished or will I do so with a polyurethane? Would this product be a practical application as planned?

                        Bamboo is acceptable for installation in a bathroom, but an excess of moisture can damage the flooring.  For a bathroom that is showered in everyday, especially by children, there is often just too much of a variance in the temperature and humidity for solid wood or bamboo floors. Good ventilation is a must and will need to be regulated. Expansion may be a problem as well as adhering to Greenboard. This being an experimental installation it is difficult to guaranty success. This flooring is pre-finished with water-based urethane. If you are using it in small areas or short spans, expansion may not be a problem.
