Excellent product and service! I had one sheet of 40mm bamboo ply delivered to my residential address so I could build these open-baffle speakers. The ply was easy to work with and looks great. The speakers have had one coat of Danish oil - thanks Josh and co!

love this product, so easy to use, doesn't warp or shift like the plastic composite does, acts like a real timber but very hard and durable. It can be oiled to keep the colour or let it silver off. The team have been wonderful to work with the customer service has been amazing. 100% would recommend

hi SteveDeck is 99% done. just some steps to add to the main deck area. Lockdown came at a perfect time for me. I had the best lockdown project in town.Loved working with the decking. While it seems an expensive option at first the benefit of engineered lengths resulted in very little waste. There are no knots , twists or warped boards. The end result looks amazing . An amateur builder achieving professional looking results.I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to work with, I did purchase a quality high tooth count blade for the Mitre saw, but my circular saw ( used for ripping ) and jig saw coped with the dense nature of the decking material just fine.I cant say enough good things about the decking.The real measure is my wife is thrilled with the end result..Thanks for your support through the process. Ive already recommended your product to two people looking for decking options

Really happy with product and the service and information provided by the supplier was first class. Being able to see the product after seven years in situ added to having confidence in the product and it’s longevity.

We laid our Plantation Bamboo floor about 18 months ago in our living and dining room and kitchen, and it still looks brand new and stunning.Plantation Bamboo is clearly a top quality product. We love that it's adjusted for New Zealand conditions. We checked all the specs before buying, and couldn't fault it.Steve and his team were incredibly helpful. Delivery was on time, and many kilos of bamboo flooring was delivered straight into the house. Whenever we had a question, Steve was always right there on the other side of the line or email. He is friendly, knowledgeable, generous with his time and very helpful.Most importantly, the floor looks even better in our house than expected, and many people have commented on it. Definitely highly recommend Plantation Bamboo flooring.

From day one, Ingrid from Plantation bamboo has provided my small design & manufacturing business with exceptional customer service. The support that both Ingrid & Steve have shown has given me full confidence that no matter what project I am working on, their team will be able to provide me with the materials and advice I need to get the job done.Their knowledge and expertise with materials and sealants truly make a difference to ensure that my customers receive the highest quality product possible.Plantation Bamboo panels are finished to an extremely high-level joinery grade finish. For my furniture and lighting designs, I require a product that is both strong and durable. This can be seen in their sample packs which I always receive great feedback on from my own customers.Thank you to the entire team at Plantation Bamboo for your continued support; I very much appreciate it.

We are very happy with the Plantation Bamboo flooring in our new build. The flooring was easy to install with very little waste. We went with the darker Coffee colour to compliant our darker ceilings and light walls. We wanted to use bamboo for its eco friendless, easy to clean surface, hard wearing abilities and natural properties. The team at Plantation Bamboo provided a great service and we highly recommend their product when looking for a hardwood flooring solution.

I've used the bamboo sheets for joinery, floating vanities, shelves, cavity slider doors, and a few other things. They look great, are very durable and there are next to no flaws internally so you always get a nice edge when you cut the sheets. I've also used the bamboo veneer product which is also a great product.

We replaced an existing composite deck with a new Bamboo deck. Very happy with the look and feel of the product. Although we liked the dark look of the deck when we first laid the boards we prefer to have a lighter tone and the natural even fading process has given the deck a lovely natural look. Service was excellent. Have highly recommended to many people.

We purchased bamboo for both our decks and inside flooring. Steve was really helpful and knowledgable and did everything he could to ensure we were comfortable with our purchase. The flooring was delivered when we were told it would be. Most importantly it all looks amazing! we have a big dog and the flooring is super durable and cleans easily. We are so impressed and would work with Plantation bamboo again in a heart beat.

We used the decking and I can’t recommend the install method highly enough. The decking itself looks fantastic and hardwearing. Steve and Kim were great to deal with and super helpful. Been a carpenter for over 10 years and it was an absolute pleasure doing business with them.

I used Plantation Bamboo for all my kitchen and decking. It is beautifully finished, durable and very easy to work with. Plantation Bamboo (Auckland) were incredibly helpful in ensuring all information was readily available for me and my trades and facilitated quick and easy delivery. I will be using it for more cabinetry - and even the builder and cabinetmakers now intend to use it in their own homes. The panels are so much nicer and healthier than most ply, the colour and surface is beautiful and the edging is a really interesting detail to highlight. I highly recommend both Plantation Bamboo and their products.

I have been dealing with Steve and his products for a few years now and I can't recommend them highly enough. Brilliant service and a first rate product. Why would you use Kwila or Jarra or similar when the bamboo decking is not only better than those products in looks and use, but is also sustainable? It's the perfect solution.

We love our new floor, thank you Plantation Bamboo for making our renovation a worthwhile experience with our new bamboo flooring.

I love the Plantation Bamboo, I'm so glad I chose it over other timbers. The clip system is great and the finished effect is fantastic.

We loved working with Plantation Bamboo. Their decking and flooring not only look beautiful but support our requirement for an eco friendly product.The service from Eveliene and her team was excellent. They listened, advised and delivered, on time and on budget. We particularly liked the way Eveliene was focused on solutions, even to the point of organising a pick up rather than couriering a single extra length of flooring we urgently needed.If you are renovating or building I would strongly recommend Plantation Bamboo's product and service.
