RE: split solid bamboo board
Yes. There are several ways to go about this but let me go with the most common. One of the more common methods is cutting out the board and replacing with a new plank (if it is available). To do this refer to our bamboo installation instructions. Have you looked into the humidity levels of your home? Is it possible that the levels will get even lower causing additional splits in the bamboo? If the material has stabilized in the environment you will want to sand the affected area and then fill with putty or a product like Wood Flower from Glitsa. You can find out how to sand and finish an area in our bamoo flooring installation section. If neither of these options make sense for your current bamboo problem, please let us know so that we can help further.
