Fire resistance:

While bamboo has inherent fire-resistant properties compared to some other organic materials, it is still susceptible to fire. Untreated bamboo can burn and contribute to the spread of flames. Proper fire-retardant treatments or coatings are necessary to improve its fire resistance.

Availability and sourcing:

Depending on the region, the availability of high-quality bamboo suitable for construction may be limited. Ensuring a sustainable and responsible supply chain for bamboo sourcing can be a challenge in some areas.

Regulatory considerations:

In some jurisdictions, building codes and regulations may not explicitly address bamboo as a construction material. This can create challenges in obtaining necessary approvals and permits for bamboo structures, particularly in areas where traditional building materials are more commonly used.
