Timber and bamboo are natural products, dependent on their environment for their colour and characteristics. Variation between individual boards is to be expected and is a part of the beauty of these floors.
Most floors will creak occasionally. This is normal and is usually because of atmospheric changes or if a floor has not been walked on for some time.
When timber or bamboo decreases in moisture it will shrink, and when it increases in moisture it will expand. This can cause cupping and movement across the floor.
Movement occurs during times of high or low humidity when boards expand or contract because of increased or decreased moisture. This may cause gaps between boards. The wider the board, the more likely it is to move. If your site has extreme weather conditions we advise installing a narrower board to minimise these effects.
Why is Onsite Measurement So Important for Timber Flooring?
Onsite measurement ensures accuracy in terms of installation specifications. Incorrect measurements may cost you extra money, or result in delays in installation.
