If the cost is going to be a significant factor, then hempcrete could be a better option. However, the type of building, the potential for wear and tear in high-traffic areas, and the texture/styling all need to be considered. Both choices are long-lasting, and they both look great. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp acevedobenitez 0 Questions 182 Answers 0 Best Answers 366 Points View Profile acevedobenitez 2020-08-09T16:47:47-04:00Added an answer on August 9, 2020 at 4:47 pm Both are sturdy and sustainable materials. I believe hempcrete would be a better choice because it is the most durable natural fiber out there. Hempcrete is better at insulating than bamboo and is better for safety because of its fire-resistant properties. You also have the added benefit of moisture control with hempcrete. Bamboo might be more aesthetically pleasing, but I like the money-saving qualities of hempcrete. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp MarcLouis 0 Questions 187 Answers 0 Best Answers 376 Points View Profile MarcLouis 2020-08-02T23:51:50-04:00Added an answer on August 2, 2020 at 11:51 pm Which is the better material to use bamboo or hempcrete for flooring? Well, both elements are environmentally friendly. Bamboo is twice as durable as wood, whereas hemp is 20 times stronger. Both bamboo and hempcrete flooring are durable as well as easy to maintain. Hemp is more resistant to water than bamboo. Hempcrete is known to be both insect and rodent proof. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abe Melbourne, Australia 2 Questions 238 Answers 0 Best Answers 559 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-07-21T08:56:14-04:00Added an answer on July 21, 2020 at 8:56 am Both of them have the ultimate goal of housing material: along with the green core heart of the earth! But to address some significant features, we can add good indoor air quality that acts as carbon storage and preserved natural resources and forests that typically used for wood flooring products. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 461 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-07-16T22:28:39-04:00Added an answer on July 16, 2020 at 10:28 pm It’s a matter of opinion! Cost-effectiveness would be Hempcrete. Better looking, in my opinion- Bamboo. Where is it going, that’s a factor – basement, bathroom, garage, porch, kitchen – Hempcrete. Living room, bedroom, dining room, den, office, Sun polar, – bamboo. And again, each has its texture, so that is something each individual will have to factor in too. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wordsmith 0 Questions 256 Answers 0 Best Answers 531 Points View Profile wordsmith 2020-07-15T16:03:42-04:00Added an answer on July 15, 2020 at 4:03 pm Several factors must be considered in choosing between bamboo or hemp for flooring. Such factors are the type of building, whether it’s residential, commercial or industrial, the foot traffic, and the location. Hemp and bamboo have their advantages and disadvantages. But both are excellent when it comes to sustainability. And both are also durable for flooring. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-07-15T10:30:07-04:00Added an answer on July 15, 2020 at 10:30 am This is totally dependent on your own interests since you don’t really have a subject to derive this answer from. Matter of cost, hempcrete will be less expensive. For insulation, hempcrete will insulate better. For appearance, with my own interest, I would say bamboo. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 660 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-07-14T20:32:43-04:00Added an answer on July 14, 2020 at 8:32 pm Comes down to personal preferences and the needs for the floor in question. Personally, I think hempcrete would be great in a basement or garage, and I would prefer bamboo for my living space… Now, I wouldn’t mind having a painted hempcrete floor where the artists make the floors look like marble… 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Melody 0 Questions 189 Answers 0 Best Answers 387 Points View Profile Melody 2020-07-10T20:21:27-04:00Added an answer on July 10, 2020 at 8:21 pm Hemp and bamboo are both excellent. They are specifically better than many alternatives. I think it is mostly about what you like and what is readily available in your area. When sustainable is the overall goal, you can’t go wrong with either one as a flooring choice. (But the hemp floors I’ve seen I like better. I don’t really like the grain in bamboo, but that’s a matter of taste.) 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-07-12T02:27:09-04:00Replied to answer on July 12, 2020 at 2:27 am Are you talking about hemp floors or Hempcrete floors?

Hempcrete floors sound like it would be rough to the touch, and would likely need some sort of carpeting layered over it. Hempcrete is more of a surface insulating layer and not meant as a structural implementation. This isn’t to say that it isn’t possible to have hempcrete floors, just that it might take more thought than other floorings. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Cleverclogs 0 Questions 204 Answers 0 Best Answers 414 Points View Profile Cleverclogs 2020-08-09T16:46:50-04:00Replied to answer on August 9, 2020 at 4:46 pm In a commercial setting, though, hempcrete flooring could be a ‘thing.’ I guess it is the exact same type of flooring as concrete, which is seen a lot in commercial premises. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
