Click Bamboo Flooring

You've probably heard of bamboo flooring. In this day and age, almost everyone knows what it is, especially because of the numerous benefits that it offers. One of the latest innovations in engineered bamboo flooring is the click bamboo flooring, otherwise known as the click lock bamboo flooring. The major advantage to this type of flooring is that it will not require you to have to hire someone else to install it in your house; it allows you to do the installation on your own! People can save a lot of money on installation costs using this type of bamboo flooring. It is easy to see why it has become an instant hit.

Who Should Use Click Bamboo Flooring

Click bamboo flooring is an excellent alternative to wood flooring but it isn't for everyone. However, people who are on a tight budget or those who would simply love to be able to save on costs can greatly benefit from this type of flooring. It is also an excellent choice for people who have time on their hands to install it. It isn't rocket science but it does take time and effort to install. And lastly, it is also best for those who have subfloors that would make it impossible to use the nail-down or glue-down methods for installation.

Click Bamboo Flooring Installation

Before you get started, you should have the following tools ready: tape measure, hammer, table saw, and broom. As soon as you're all set, follow these steps:

  • Clean the area where you will install the bamboo flooring. It should be free from dirt and dust.
  • Place a moisture barrier on the sub-floor in order to prevent water from penetrating into the bamboo floor.
  • If you have a concrete floor, spread a sheet of foam padding on top of the moisture barrier.
  • Begin placing your bamboo flooring in one corner, with the first piece set in the corner. It should have at least 3/8 inch of space from the wall.
  • The second piece should be placed next to the first piece but make sure its smaller end is adjacent to the head of the first piece.
  • Cut the third piece with a table saw and place the cut end in such a way that it should be facing the wall. Insert the tongue into the groove and lower it towards the floor until it snaps into place. Tap a few times using a hammer to secure it.
  • Place your fourth piece lengthwise adjacent to the second piece. Then insert the tongue into the groove of the second piece and then slide it along the groove until it touches the third piece.
  • Reach your hands below the boards and let the fourth piece slide into the groove of the third board's head. Lower the boards and secure them in place.
  • Repeat the same steps until you reach the other side. Make sure to leave enough space for the boards to expand.
