Questions & Answers

I used this product to glue down bamboo over a concrete slab less than 1 year ago. My living RM is swelling in 5 locations. rest of the house OK

Asked by: exbobcat
I had the same problem in my computer room. I had three pop-ups in a 160 sq foot area. They thought it was an expansion problem, then a water problem (pipes) no way. I applied two coats of Redguard to prevent water problems. The Roberts adhesive does not "flex" with the bamboo expanding. I believe other reviews have stated there are better adhesives than Roberts, but more pricey. Instead of possibly losing another $1000 in case of pop-up again. I just re-installed carpet in my computer room.

we are having trouble with the product hardening during application. Is there anyway to prevent that from happening?

Asked by: bambi
I had the same problem but I found that if I put a plastic bag over the glue it didn't dry out.

Asked by: Lydie
Whats funny is my husband did the same thing and what works best is sweat. If you put lotion on your hands and then put your hands in latex gloves for a few hours it peels right off. Lesson learned!

Customer Reviews

2-gal. Wood and Bamboo Flooring Urethane Adhesive is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Robert's has quality control issues Glued down 400 sq ft of bamboo and used this glue. It took two 4 gallon buckets. I opened the first bucket and the glue seemed thick. I've never glued down flooring before so I didn't know what to expect. I painstakingly got through the first bucket and started on the second bucket and the glue seemed even thicker. I took the glue back to Home Depot and had them get a new bucket of glue to compare it with mine. The new bucket of glue was the consistency all the glue should have been. More like cake batter instead of pizza dough. I exchanged the bucket without any problems and proceeded to finish the floor without any issues. The new glue went down so much easier then the first bucket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product, but be aware of issues Nice product for sure as it does what it is intended to do well. However, there are a few issues. First, it is difficult to open and basically impossible to close, so make sure you do what you need to within 5-6 hours. A skin hardens on top with time (don't use it). Second, It is very messy and difficult to pour, so make sure to use a tool (trowel, scoop or something) to get onto the floor first and have towels on hand. I used it on stair landings, but wasn't using in on the stairs so I had to be more careful than usual. Lastly, I wish they sold a ONE GALLON bucket. This is the smallest size I could find and it is the best value I could find. Again, it is a great product and does what it needs to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BE VERY CAREFUL!!!! We used this adhesive to put down our strand woven bamboo. The product is excellent but beware! The most important things we learned with this product were time and cleanliness. Once you open that glue you have to finish it. You cant close it up and use it the next day. So make sure to do all your prep work before hand. You need to work fast as well. The glue definitely starts to harden quick so dont go smearing a huge room of this glue. You can only do a few feet at a time. You must have at least two people or ideally three people to do this job. One person must be cleaning as you go!!! This is key. We thought about waiting until we were done and now the glue is permanently adhered to the floor and has chemically etched the floor. The floor is basically ruined!!! We have had to scrub on our hands and knees for hours to try and make it just look a little better. The glue needs to be wiped up immediately. Make sure you have good lighting because we thought we were being careful but then we realized there were fine finger prints everywhere! The good things about this product were it did not smell at all and the floor is really stuck to the cement. The floors feel great under your feet but I cannot stress enough you have to be sooooo careful!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product arrived with a thick skin on the top.We had to scrape at least one quart off to get to the good stuff. I only needed half of the bucket to do the job I had . Could not buy smaller amount. With one Quart hardened in the can to start with, and having to buy double the amount needed to do the job , This an expensive way to go. It did glue the bamboo down and so far stayed down.We will see in time. I don't think we will have a problem with it's ability to stick. I feel sorry for the next guy that wants to remove this floor. All this being said, there is not much choice out there . I guess it is what it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to spread but swells during curing This adhesive was easy to spread but it swells during curing. Using a 1/4" square notch trowel, the thickness of the adhesive increased by 1/8" after curing. This makes it tough to do a floor in sections. HD.com needs to do a much better job in packing. I placed 2 orders and I received both severally banged up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from May not be the right producr Since this glue is urethane, it does not expand or "move" with the bamboo when it swells. I had the floor pop up (loose) in three places in a 160 square foot area. (My computer room). There was also adequate spacing along the walls. Other reviews have stated there is a better glue than Roberts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it states it will do. Am satisfied that it's adhesive properties are as strong as any out there. It was tacky within 30min and for engineered wood flooring that has tongue and groove slots, once all partitions are set in place, you can actually walk on it immediately. After a 24 hour cure, you can jump up and down on it as it is solid set by then.
