YOUR TRUSTED VANCOUVER
BAMBOO FLOORING STORE
When customers are looking for a sustainable, eco-friendly flooring solution, bamboo is often the material of choice.
Bamboo flooring is relatively new compared to standard natural materials such as cork and hardwood. Bamboo is durable, low-maintenance, and has an appealing wood-like appearance at a much lower price point. It’s also an easy product to install, leading to lower installation costs.
It’s also a good choice for those concerned about the effect chemicals in their flooring products can have on their health or the environment. Many bamboo flooring products are available with low levels of “VOC” (volatile organic compounds) and other chemicals.
Since opening our doors in 2005, Floors Depot has been proud to be the premier flooring services and product provider in the Greater Vancouver Area. Let our almost two decades’ of experience work for you so that you can focus on the next step of your renovation with peace of mind.
Bamboo flooring is a relatively new flooring product manufactured from the fast-growing bamboo plant. Because bamboo grows so quickly, it can be harvested much more intensely than hardwood resources – while still remaining completely sustainable.
A finished bamboo floor has a very similar appearance to hardwood, and is slightly harder and more durable. A treated and sealed bamboo floor is more resistant than most hardwood products to scratching, moisture, and general wear and tear.
Bamboo has a much lower price point relative to hardwoods as well, with the downside that it cannot usually be refinished. Bamboo typically has a 25-year lifespan, though some specially treated bamboo products can last three decades or more. Just as with hardwood, engineered bamboo flooring products are also available. These are composite planks or tiles with a bamboo layer attached to a plywood core. These products are tough, attractive, and easy to install, as the planks simply ‘click’ together.
Questions about whether cork bamboo is the right material for your floor? Our team of professionals is standing by to help you pick the perfect product.

LATEST FLOORS DEPOT REVIEWS
We required an emergency floor replacement due on very short notice. We called Alex at 4pm on Friday afternoon and he was there by 6. Within days our floor was replaced and we were able to move back in. Alex and his team did an outstanding job. Their customer service is excellent. Marjan and I highly recommend Floors Depot!
Alex was a clear communicator. The job was done quickly and he was accommodating to our tight schedule. When some unforeseen challenges came up with the renovation (out of his control) he solved it and kept the project on schedule. Our floors look great, and the whole experience was stress free. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone!
Great price and excellent service from the Floors Depot store! They did a beautiful job installing our new laminate floors and paying special attention to finishings and trims. Thank you for a job well done. I will definitely refer you to my family and friends.
BAMBOO & CORK FLOORING FAQ
What are the main differences between cork and bamboo floors?
Bamboo flooring is a hard surface with a similar appearance to a hardwood floor, while cork flooring is soft and spongy, with a wood-like but unique look.
Can I install cork or bamboo flooring in my kitchen?
Both cork and bamboo flooring are suitable for a kitchen floor. However, it should be kept in mind that most products are not 100% waterproof, so spills should be mopped away quickly and not be allowed to sit.
How long do cork and bamboo floors last?
Bamboo floors can last from 10 to 25 years, depending on the product and the level of maintenance, while cork floors can last up to 30 years if maintained properly.
