More and more people are switching to more eco-friendly, sustainable, and green options in recent years, including food, clothes, and composite decks.
In more traditional times, most people would consider plastic, vinyl, and aluminium materials when building their decks. Over time, decks made of these materials see wear and tear that cannot be refurbished, leading many to turn to an often-overlooked alternative: bamboo.
Bamboo is an all-natural and incredibly regenerative material that grows three times faster than most tree species. While bamboo shares many attributes with hardwood, it is a more conventional material that is durable enough to last for a considerable amount of time.
There are three types of bamboo decking products you need to consider when buying materials, including:
Solid bamboo is the most preferred material for outdoor decks. These boards are made from solid lengths of bamboo that are heat treated, glued and laminated together under high pressure. This material is more stable and less likely to break apart. This product is warranted against this structural failure for 25 years.
This new technology in processing Bamboo (Mosso – Giant Bamboo) has now delivered the most amazing durable product to withstand the rigors of outdoors and around pools. Especially important is that there are no tannins that can leach out of this decking that will stains walls and floors and especially pool deck copping, unlike hardwoods.
Strand woven bamboos are commonly seen in the indoor flooring market. The material is made of smaller chips of bamboo. This material is not recommended for a deck application as it is not designed to withstand extreme cold, heat, or moisture.
Bamboo and Composite decking – Often referred to as Bamboo Composite. The use of bamboo powder is used extensively as a filler and a part of the materials with a plastic and minerals that then are sold as a Wood Plastic Decking – in this case the wood part is bamboo and sometimes rice husk.
