Stranded bamboo - reliable supplier?

Posted by zfrankle (My Page) on

We're redoing the floors of our apartment, and want to use floating (click-lock) stranded bamboo. (not carbonized) Reading through previous threads hasn't yielded a clear winner.
I know that Teragen gets great reviews, but it's also expensive. Are there any reliable options? We got some Cali bamboo samples that look nice, but I don't know how reliable they are. Any ideas for a good, reasonably-priced source?

RE: Stranded bamboo - reliable supplier?

I purchased a significant amount of flooring from Cali Bamboo. The ordering process was easy. I ordered over the phone and the person who took my order did not order the correct product. It came, and was wrong. The entire thing was not managed well.

Other than the snafu with the shipping and return, the flooring is great. We glued it down on our concrete floor and love it.

Their delivery process could be smoother. They go with the lowest bidder and it shows. Cali requests two people to deliver, but this is not how it worked with the first company that delivered our product. Because of this, quite a bit of it was damaged. This turned out ok, since it was the wrong color product.

All said and done, I might order from them again when the freshness of the mess-up is behind me. It was most definitely less than anything else around, and it is a quality product - so far. I have 6 kids and it is in the bedrooms and our school room. We are on it a lot.

Thanks, Susie - that's exactly the kind of delay that would throw off our renovation schedule completely. We bought a small apartment, and the floors must be done before we move in. That's too much of a risk for saving a little money.
