Getting new hardwood floors doesn’t have to be a tricky decision! With so many different options, it’s easy to get turned around, but the good news is that the team at Jason Brown Wood Floors is here to help. Here are some of the most compelling reasons to install white oak hardwood floors in your home this winter and spring!
It Looks Better
White oak is beautiful and can add to the aesthetic appeal of your home. Compared to other materials, it is more contemporary and trendy, while others might be stale and out of fashion for now. You might see ring-patterns in the wood – but that isn’t a mark of artificiality. The trees themselves have rings on the interior of their wood indicating how old they are. Since white oak contains tighter ring-spirals, the floorboards are easier on the eye.
It Is More Durable
Another great reason to choose white oak is that it’s surprisingly durable. Oak is one of the toughest types of wood commonly turned into lumber that is then used as hardwood flooring. Many other types of oak will show signs of damage and age, though. Unlike its counterparts, white oak is less likely to show dents, scratches, and gouges. In the end, you will be much happier with these species.
Plus, white oak is also resistant to moisture. Although it might be dry inside your house, you can’t predict when you might track in mud from outside. It’s also possible to spill liquid on it during a party. So that means moisture resistance is actually a great property for hardwood flooring to have!
You Can Use It Anywhere
It’s normal to be confused when placing hardwood floors. That’s because you might not know where they fit in the best. The versatility of white oak means you can install it virtually anywhere inside your home. Staining and refinishing are much easier to do and since it has a neutral palette, it fits with many different aesthetics!
