It's not nice to have beautiful new bamboo floor laid to discover in a few years as cracks, warping or decrease starting to rear their ugly heads. Sometimes the repair or replacement cost can be much more than the installation of the original floor so it pays to get it right the first time.

The following ten secrets were developed during my nearly 35 years in the bamboo flooring industry. What gave me more knowledge invaluable "insider" is the great amount of work insurance as I have done for some of the largest home insurers in Australia.
Never leave your flooring decisions to a man! I know that this statement sounds strange, but he had a good sense "manly" behind it. Surprisingly (which changes over time), people do not tend to spend much time inside the house, or do house cleaning compared to women. Because of this, women tend to have a better appreciation for practical reasons, color and what will or will not work with the furniture and home accessories.
Not having a comprehensive assessment completed prior to installation! When spending the amount of money you'll need to get high quality bamboo flooring installed, you'll need an evaluation for the complete installation. Fortunately, this service is normally provided free of charge and if it is not, go to another floor company.
Not insisting that a moisture meter is used on the area to ask and also the bamboo planks about to be installed! Installers who do not use moisture meters are actually much more common than you might think. There are many builders, roofers and other tradespeople who install bamboo floors that are not qualified and do not use moisture meters. This means they have no way of knowing exactly how much moisture is present and greatly increases the risk of damage to the soil in the long term.
Do check there is provided a strong guarantee! This is a sure sign that you want to move to the next bamboo flooring company as "worth their salt" provide confidence. You should expect at least a 20-year warranty on your bamboo flooring and a minimum of 12 months out of the facility.
