Bamboo flooring
Garry

My wife and I have been taking estimates for floating solid stranded bamboo flooring.  We are starting to get the impression that the contractor we have spoken to that bamboo is pretty unstabile.  Engineered flooring as well as traditional species have been suggested.  Should we reconsider our desire for the Bamboo (yes, we could go with the engineered if necessary)?  Does anyone have an opinion (other than "I don't like the looks")?

Remember bamboos are more prone to Moisture which can create molds. also, make sure your subfloor is levelled.  Ifn't you can use plywood to level.
