Timber is a sensitive material especially when subjected to the elements. In an indoor environment however, wear and tear is unavoidable but can be minimized based on the selection of hardwood used. Bamboo is a great solution as it is a resilient material and easier to maintain. If the unfortunate event does occur, it can be easily repaired using methods specified by your supplier. It is important to tell the supplier your concerns in order for them to make an appropriate recommendation.
