strand bamboo floor 'cupping'-can we sand it out? Xpost
Do you know what cupping is? I had never heard of it, but apparently we did not let the strand bamboo "acclimate" before installing. My DH put a moisture barrier over our concrete slab floor, the put the starnd bamboo in using glue. He did not jut it right up to the wall, he left a bit of room at the edges for the bamboo to expand.
Unfortunately, now there are "waves" (peaks) at each joint. When the light hits it a certain way, it is VERY noticeable. It is also easy to feel under bare feet. We are very disappointed.
My DH thinks it can be sanded out? And restained? What are your opinions?
I said, "well, if we ever fall into a pot of money, maybe we can remove it and put something else in." He said removing a glued down floor would be a nightmare. Opinions on that, please?
