Remodeling Your Floors Is a Great Idea
One of the aspects of your home that probably sees the most use is your floor coverings. Of course, they can be a major design element, adding to your unique décor, but they are also something you and your guests come in contact with each and every day. It only makes sense that when you are planning to remodel, your floors come to mind almost immediately.
Strand Woven bamboo by EcoFusion is an excellent choice for your new floors. In fact, it has many features you simply won’t find in any other product. For instance, ECOfusion is a vertically integrated mill that imports directly into North America, ensuring quality and consistency from the factory to your home.
We allow our 100% Moso Bamboo to grow between five to six years before harvesting, so it will feature the ideal strength. But the benefits don’t stop there. ECOfusion uses a unique processing method called scrimber that allows them to use up to 85% of the harvested material compared to 30-50% under common methods and machinery.
To find out even more information on this great floor covering, be sure to check with your local flooring retailer. Ask them about Strand Woven bamboo from EcoFusion.

s. In fact, the market is hotter than it has been in a long time. However, many of the homeowners in Denver are remodeling instead of selling. We became even more aware of this when we came across a recent article on the topic in The Denver Post.
“Her three daughters were grown. Her husband died two years ago. The circa 1978 tri-level in southeast Aurora was more house than she needed. And the scorching metro real estate market just begged her to cash out. For Debby Pilloud, the next move seemed obvious: Capitalize on her equity and downsize to a less pricey condo. But like more and more homeowners, Pilloud pumped the brakes, stayed put and invested in some overdue home improvements.”

It was found that those who had been in their homes for six years or less, often spend more money on these remodeling projects. In fact, many have been taking advantage of the fact that home equity is currently so high, and used that to secure loans to carry these remodels out. Those who do consider selling, are finding that they aren’t able to find a comparable home on such a hot market. Instead, contractors say, spending upwards of $15,000 or more can completely transform your home and give you plenty of reasons to stay.
