What you need to know

Woven strand bamboo is a hybrid between an engineered click and solid tongue and grove. It will expand and contract similar to a solid wood floor. The expansion and contraction are most predominant in the width, which is similar to a solid wood floor. Unlike a solid, it is installed in a floating application.
