Durability: Bamboo is an extremely durable material. The high silica content in bamboo fibers makes this material termite resistant because they cannot digest the fibers.

 

Strength: The tensile strength of bamboo is just as strong, if not stronger than steel.  

 

Resistance to Swelling and Shrinking: Wood tends to swell or shrink with atmospheric changes. Bamboo doesn’t have this tendency.

 

Sustainability: Bamboo, which is a grass and not a tree like one might think, is the fastest growing plant on Earth.

 

Appearance: Bamboo has a fine grain and can wear many stains and finishes, making it not only beautiful, but versatile as well.
