We are going to purchase about 1700 sq ft of hardwood for our new house. We found some bamboo that we really like, but it's 1/2" X 3 1/2".

Is there a big difference in the quality of 1/2 vs 3/4?

Also, a retailer told us when you get over 3" it can start cupping? Is this true?

Anyone had any experience with solid bamboo?
