Strand woven bamboo makes it better
When designing with Strand Woven Bamboo, you might be surprised to find that nearly every decor scheme can easily be met. EcoFusion offers a wide selection of color and appearance options that will add great character to any room it’s added to. What’s more, colors can do amazing things for your spaces. Light, bright colors can create an airy feel to a room, making it seem larger and more inviting than it actually is. Darker colors, on the other hand, can tone down the size of a room, making it feel cozy and private.

There are some phenomenal facts about Strand Woven Bamboo that you should know as well. For instance, our Moso Bamboo is harvested at between five and six years for optimal strength and then it is constructed with a cross-grain bamboo core that gives you true performance and stability. You’ll never find urea formaldehyde or harmful VOC’s in our products.

If you’d like to experience this floor covering for yourself, be sure to contact your local flooring retailer. Ask about Strand Woven Bamboo by EcoFusion.

Homeowners all over the country are hearing more and more about Strand Woven Bamboo, its many benefits, and the many ways that it can make their homes a better place to live. The truth is, the benefits are numerous, as are the immense number of styles and colors available in this particular niche. We recently read an article that gives a little more detail on the specifics and you can read it yourself, below.

“Bamboo flooring is becoming a new and growing trend around the world due to its large number of benefits that greatly outweigh the cons. The soft, honey appearance of bamboo creates an eco-friendly alternative to traditional hardwood floors, as this material regenerates every five to seven years, whereas traditional hardwood comes from trees that are over 30 years old.”

In the Portland area, there is the possibility of a great deal of money coming back to pockets of taxpayers very soon. In fact, economists say taxpayers stand to gain just shy of $700 million, which will come in a form known as “kicker” payments. The economists say much of this will come as tax credits, but could spell out what looks like a less bleak financial gain for Oregon residents.

Just take a look at the article we found recently on the OPB website:

“State economists now anticipate almost $78 million more from personal income taxes than in June, and $11 million more in corporate income taxes. And because of the deaths of a number of extremely wealthy individuals, the state also expects to generate more than $50 million more in estate taxes. In all, economists say the state may take in more than $1 billion more than they estimated at the close of last year’s legislative session.”

The housing market has been hot, hot, hot for a long time now, and many homeowners have capitalized on that by selling and gaining a great profit. However, the market seems to be slowing down, which means those profits from sales are starting to dwindle a bit. In fact, it seems that now is a great time to actually invest instead of selling, while waiting for the market to rise once again. We found some great details about this phenomenon in a recent article on the Oregon Live Website.

“Portland-area home prices continued to rise at an annual rate of 5.9 percent in May, according to the S&P/ Case-Shiller home price index, slower than the nation as a whole. That’s the same rate of home-price appreciation as the metro posted in April. Home prices in Portland haven’t risen so slowly since 2012, in the early days of the housing market’s recovery.”

All is Not Lost for Homeowners Hoping to Sell

If you had your heart set on selling your home, we hope you won’t let this news of the stabilizing home market cause you to fret. The fact is, there are many things you can do to continue to invest in your home’s overall worth. In fact, doing so now might be the best time of all.

Remodeled homes almost always bring a better price on the market than those left in a bit of disrepair. That is especially the case with flooring. Nothing says, “We’ve taken great care of this home” better than stunningly gorgeous flooring. And that’s just what you’ll have if you invest in strand woven bamboo by EcoFusion.

Strand woven bamboo is a little different, not only from your average floor covering, but from other bamboo products as well. For instance, ours is the only 100% vertically integrated mill importing into North America.

What’s more, the construction process yields a product that is incredibly stable, and performs well under even the highest levels of traffic. We are even able to maintain a status as a 100% rapidly renewable resource, and we add no urea formaldehyde or any harmful VOC’s to our strand woven bamboo.
