Our lives are so busy that we have little time for D.I.Y. projects. And you might think hiring a contractor is easier and takes less time, but finding the right company and overseeing their work is also demanding.
That’s why when we do commit to home improvements, we want to be sure our time is worth it. Who wants to get involved in a project with a result that won’t last?
When it comes to exterior design, some people think bamboo won’t withstand harsh weather. That is because they are not aware of the full range of bamboo products available to them.
In fact, solid bamboo is extremely durable and long-lasting. And it isn’t susceptible to splitting if installed properly. It’s ideal for outdoor settings, no matter your home’s climate. Solid Bamboo poles have thick walls that are so sturdy they stand up to the elements.
There are steps you can take to ensure that your natural bamboo lasts in all kinds of weather. All while keeping its beautiful, rustic shine and color. Consider applying a sealer or light stain to your outdoor bamboo furniture and structures. We recommend TWP, a sealer available at your local hardware store.
The poles can also be treated to resist insect infestation. You may have heard that bamboo isn’t a useful building material because of bamboo mites. But before you decide against it, learn the facts.
Bamboo mites move onto a bamboo culm before it is cut when it has juicy leaves they can feed on. They live in a thick web on the underside of the leaf.
However, they are so small that growers who think they’ve killed them off with a chemical spray might be sending mites that have hidden inside the wood to the mill.
But we have good news. Bamboo sold by amaZulu, Inc. is treated in a number of non-toxic ways to eliminate the mites completely.
Mite free Bamboo is durable and long-lasting bamboo.
