Bamboo flooring is now extremely popular and can be found in a ton of different styles and finishes. People all over the country are now installing bamboo floors on their own, and it’s never been easier to do.
First of all, you should always check it out on the internet, as that’s usually where you’ll find the best value. Having a floor shipped to your home is inexpensive and you still should save money on flooring. Continue reading Click Bamboo Fooring With A Twist

If you are thinking about laminate in today’s market it may come as a surprise to you that just a few years ago laminate was 100% glue together at the tongue and the groove. While this was still a “floating floor” it was not as cool as the newer generation of clic floors (click flooring). Uniclic, aka flooring industries, which was acquired by Mohawk industries Mohawk Industries, Inc.
(Public, NYSE:MHK) and as usual this turned out to be a brilliant move. MHK is one of the best at making acquisitions and then completing integrations of assets of any company in the world, let alone the flooring category.Valinge has also created a series of technology advancements in the patent science of clic flooring, but I would say that unilin owns the laminate category by in large. There are other pieces to the puzzle including Pergo, Classen, Faus, Alloc, Junkers and many more I am sure. Frankly it is tough to figure out who covers what.

I remember the first time a manufacturer told me about their tests for a glueless locking system. I was flabbergasted and I came up with at least 10 reasons why it could never work. (This points out the obvious, which is that I don’t know enough!)
As the next great chapter in the clic flooring begins I will be watching. Lots of cool stuff coming.
