Q1. Why using Country Wood flooring

A, There are too many reasons using CWF. Here are some key reasons:

1, CWF is Industry Leading manufacturer and has more experience, higher standards than others.

2, CWF pre-select the raw Logs, take more time to cool-down the material and Unique Know-how for kiln dry the material.

3, CWF has ISO 9002 certified Factory and this ensure our customer can have not only the best quality products, but more stable and consistent.

4, CWF has faster service and prompt shipping.

5, CWF has the most competitive price.

Q2. How fast does Bamboo grow

A. Every year the parent bamboo plant makes several new stems that grow to maturity in a few months. Each stem needs 5 years to gain the necessary hardness. In a mature bamboo plantation the 5 year old stems can be harvested every year, without decreasing the size of the forest.

Q3. What is bamboo flooring

A. Bamboo is attractive as a building material because it is very hard, strong, dimensionally stable and environmentally friendly. 27% harder than Northern Red Oak, 13% harder than hard Maple, Bamboo unlike most hardwood trees requiring many years to grow to maturity, it can be harvested every 3 to 5 years and is renewably harvested over and over from the same plants.  

The bamboo flooring is typically made of all bamboo plant.

Bamboo flooring could be classified by horizontal and vertical kind according to the structure of bamboo strips. Horizontal process: Under high hydraulic pressure, the bamboo strips are glued together along horizontal orientation, then are laminated three layers along vertical orientation, then follow to be tongued and grooved. Horizontal product has obvious node and clear grain. Vertical kind: Bamboo strips are laminated directly along vertical ply, Vertical product has obvious stripe and close grain, which is more durable. But its cost is higher.

Q4. What is Strand Woven bamboo flooring

A. Strand Woven Bamboo Flooring is the newest look to hit the Bamboo Flooring industry!  Manufactured by taking strands (small strips) of bamboo and fusing them together using heat, pressure glue creating a new version of bamboo flooring. This is a true environmentally friendly floor since nothing is wasted in this manufacturing process. Another benefit of the strand woven bamboo flooring is the fact that the coloration runs completely through the entire floor. It’s one solid piece of bamboo so if it were to chip, you would most likely not notice it as much as another type of flooring. Strand Bamboo is a floor that is even harder and denser than traditional bamboo flooring, with a grain more similar to hardwood flooring. Compared with the traditional bamboo flooring it is higher in density, stability, and hardness is around 3000 on the (Janka) rating scale.

The end result is a beautiful bamboo floor that has a wood flooring appearance and is also extremely durable. A lot of new looks come and go but this one is sure to be a winner with builders, decorators and homeowners alike.

Q5. Are we "stealing" Panda's food

A. Not at all. There too many species of Bamboo. The panda bears (the giant panda and the small panda) live in the central mountain ranges of central China where the JIAN Bamboo specie is the main food source. CWF using NAN bamboo or MAO bamboo as our bamboo flooring material, which is from Southern China, and is about 5 to 7" dimension, and Panda never and can't eat these species.

Q6. Does the bamboo flooring turn brown when getting older

A, Yes, the normal bamboo flooring will turn brown when they are made without taking sugar out, or made of moldy bamboo. But, all our products are made of natural materials strictly selected and processed to keep off insects and moldiness. All our products will never get faded with time.

Q7. The bamboo products are inclined to split. Is there any danger to get hurt with the splinter

A. Bamboo has an equal fiber towards a stem and unites the fiber and fruits (flesh) into one. This strong elasticity may be a cause of your question. Please remember it is rare for bamboo scales to split. We developed the safe and durable products not to split into splinters after long investigation and efforts considering the defects that bamboo may have.

Q8. Dose bamboo floors as hard as other hardwood

A. The hardness of bamboo is very high (a bit higher than American Oak) so the floor lasts a very long time.

Q9.Can your bamboo floor be sanded

A. Yes. You can sand and refinish the Bamboo floors just like the other Wood Floors.

Q10. I will glue down the bamboo floors or nail down

A. Either way or both.

Q11. Do I need to allow the expansion

A. Yes. Even our bamboo floors is stable, still, as other wood floors, a gap of at least 1/4" be allowed. The Gap can be covered by the baseboard or moulding.
