Why you should consider bamboo when looking for decking alternatives

There are many reasons to consider bamboo when on a quest for an elegant new deck for a project. Among the wide array of decking alternatives available on the market, it can be hard to determine what the most important elements of a material are when considering the pros and cons of all decking alternatives. In this blog we list the most important reasons you should consider bamboo when looking to spruce up your next project:


High dimensional stability means that Bamboo X-treme® resists expansion and contraction in the elements making it an ideal outdoor product for unique and intricate applications. With a wide range of board sizes and trim boards, unique designs and applications are easy. Bamboo X-treme® planks feature an exclusive end matched system allowing for seaming of boards off-joist. Joist spacing and location is almost irrelevant when laying planks, creating less waste, and uncommon appearance. With a range of board widths and stock material, designing a deck with striking patterns, such as herringbone is easy. Such designs can only be achieved with a material with X-treme dimensional stability. meaning Bamboo X-treme® is a very versatile material to work with and the possibilities are endless.

Obviously, a manufacturer warranty is important when looking at any material. MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® boasts a 25 year warranty, which speaks to our belief in the quality of our product.

With a look that few other decking alternatives can offer, MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® can really bring that wow factor to a project. Bamboo X-treme® is a natural material and will gray over time, the striking bamboo patina will be emphasized as this greying occurs, making the deck stand out even more and keeping that beautiful element of nature alive. If this natural element wasn’t enough, the fact that a bamboo deck can be installed without any visible screws adds another element of refinement to the overall look.


One of the most popular reasons for the choice of bamboo is the sustainable advantages it possesses and how this can impact a project. The extremely fast growing speed of bamboo means that bamboo captures large amounts of CO2, and in large quantities. This is then stored in the bamboo for the rest of its life and, thus, in the MOSO® Bamboo X-treme® deck used in a project. This is not the case when looking at other non-natural decking alternatives. Not only the carbon storage, but the resource itself aids the sustainable aspects of Bamboo X-treme® Decking. Where bamboo is a renewable resource in which harvesting of the Moso bamboo stem actually matures the growth, the sustainable aspects of bamboo products just keep growing.
