About Fisher & Rocha, Inc.
Fisher & Rocha, Inc. was founded in 1965 by Bruce E. Rocha, Sr. and Henry G. Fisher. Rocha was a skilled carpenter with a fledgling real estate practice, while Fisher was a financier with a motel enterprise. They decided to join forces to develop and build quality homes.
They purchased land, developed property, built homes and created relationships within the community together. Fisher retired from the business in 1975, while Rocha and his wife Bette-Jean, an advertising major, continued working and expanded the operation throughout the Southeastern Massachusetts region, focusing on construction, real estate and property management.
We provide all manner of construction, real estate and property management services in the Southeastern Massachusetts area. Call us for a free quote at 508 758 -6738.
Consider Bamboo Flooring
Have you thought about updating or installing new flooring? Why not consider an eco-friendly bamboo floor? Bamboo flooring is a trendy and modern alternative to traditional hardwood flooring. There are many advantages of using bamboo such as the ease of maintenance, insect and moisture resistance qualities, durability, less costly than standard hardwood, and it’s a renewable sustainable natural resource.
Bamboo is a fabulous building material that has been used to create a variety of flooring materials such as engineered, solid, and strand woven. Solid engineered bamboo flooring is superior to laminate flooring that just floats over a surface. Solid bamboo flooring comes in various lengths and can be glued or nailed to the subfloor. With a strand woven floor, strands of bamboo have been woven together and thus creating a very durable floor. There are various shades available ranging from light to dark tones. This ecofriendly flooring material is also a very popular choice for installation over radiant heat.
Proper maintenance of bamboo flooring is the key to a long lasting beautiful floor. Maintaining your floor is as simple as sweeping or vacuuming as needed and using an occasional damp mop when necessary. Bamboo flooring is less susceptible to water damage than most traditional hardwood floors, but, we still advise to wipe up spills quickly. Walking on a dusty or dirty floor is the quickest way to wear away any flooring finish. We recommend placing door mats at exterior entrances and area rugs in high traffic areas to prevent as much debris possible from going onto your floors. Placing felt pads on the bottoms of chairs, sofas, tables, and other furniture will also prevent scratches.
Unlike traditional hardwoods, which take 20-60 years to mature for harvesting, bamboo matures in 3-5 years and does not require replanting once harvested. Bamboo is considered a grass which has an extensive root system that continuously sends up new shoots. Once the plant is processed, the starch is removed and the product loses its food value to insects, making it insect resistant.
We recommend giving bamboo a serious consideration when choosing your flooring materials.
