Natural
Bamboo in its natural, unstained state.

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.

            This is a great product. Just remember, when you are working with it that by nature (It's made of bamboo fibers.) it can split if you use 16 gauge nails. 16 ga. Porta-nails work well, don't split it.

              The Morning Star Strand Woven bamboo is beautiful & strong. Our house is 33 years old and we were replacing dark peg-board pine floors that were worn & dated. We were considering the less expensive bamboos, but when we received the samples, the strand type is so much more dense we knew it would be durable & last longer. We let LL do the install & are very pleased. We plan to buy an area rung, but now we don't want to cover it up. Wait for a sale & buy the MS strand woven!

                I had my contractor install it and it went in, glued down, very quickly and easily. I think it looks great - very solid and beautiful color. For the price, I really don't think one could do any better!

                  My new house had smoke-saturated carpeting and two layers of ugly vinyl in the kitchen. The family room had only a subfloor when I ripped up the carpet, so I put bamboo in both rooms. It's beautiful, easy to clean, and didn't dent when I dropped a heavy tool. I also love that it's more sustainable than hardwood trees.

                      Never ever worked with flooring before, I installed 750 square feet upstairs in new home construction, over 1.25 inch plywood subflooring.

                      I purchased an 18 guage nailer and nails from LL, a compressor and other tools elsewhere online.

                      Even though the strand is hard, I used only one new 10 inch blade for a chop saw and another for a table saw, both with 60 teeth. The nailer performed perfectly, the only missed shots were from hitting nail heads in the sub flooring.

                      The floors looks great! Hopefully they'll stay that way after our large dogs run over them in the coming years.

                          A:

                          If needed, bamboo flooring can be fully re-sanded and finished about three times as any other species

                          A typical floor sanding involves using a special (drum) floor sander, edger, and a buffer/ polisher with a disc attachment for holding sand paper and buffing pads. The sanding procedure starts with a course of medium grit sand paper. After sanding the entire floor, repeat with a medium grit and complete sanding with a fine grit sand paper. This produces a fine surface and is ready for finishing.

                          However, because bamboo is a grass it tends to get “fuzzy”, “burns” or heats-up faster during sanding. Using a medium grit paper, approach sanding at a slight angle to the grain direction then graduating down to fine course, similar to sanding soft yellow Pine.

                          In most cases, a full sanding is usually not required, just a “buff & re-coat” or “screening & re-coating”. Buff & re-coat is light sanding using an industrial type buffer that removes surface scratches, cleans, and prepares the floor for new top finishes. This procedure really depends how the floor was used or abused. In general, high traffic areas; kitchen-dinette would need to be re-coated sooner than a bedroom or formal dining room. If your floors have been treated with any “non-hardwood friendly products” such as; waxes or has heavy wear patterns, or has lots of dents, then it would need to be fully refinished (Sand & Finish).

                          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.

                          We can only recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Never use any polish, wax, oil soaps or cleaners that add shine to the floor. In addition, we do not recommend using steamers or wet-jet cleaning systems for hardwood because spraying can collect moisture in between board edges. The use of these products is at your own risk.
