I just purchased some Cali Bamboo strand bamboo from a local installer that arrived yesterday. The installer was here to receive it (I was at work) and stacked it in the garage, boxes unopened.
The manufacturer's website recommends opening the boxes and sticker-stacking bamboo in the house , but the installer said the garage is fine. I wasn't able to get a hold of the manufacturer over the weekend to confirm that the garage was definitely a bad idea, but my understanding and some internet searching seemed to suggest otherwise.
Can anyone weight in on how big of a deal it is to have it in the garage rather than inside the house? It's about 1800 sq/ft worth, so I don't want to move it myself or make a big stink with the installer before I confirm that garage is definitely a no-go.
I'm in SF Bay Area (East Bay) and the bamboo came from Los Angeles warehouse -- pretty similar climate. I'm not sure what the temp / humidity difference between the house and the garage is, but overnight outside temp is about 20-25 degrees from daily high / interior temp.
