The Benefits of White Oak Flooring

White oak flooring has become an increasingly popular choice for homeowners everywhere. White oak provides a sleek, modern look, suitable for almost any interior living environment. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the unique advantages of white oak flooring. We will also direct you to some white oak flooring installations successfully completed by our team to help visually portray these advantages.

Strength and Durability

White oak flooring has a higher hardness rating than many comparable types of hardwood flooring. This makes it highly resilient to dents and scratches caused by regular wear and tear. While no hardwood flooring is 100% dent proof, white oak flooring provides protection against visible damage that shows up quicker on other types of flooring.

Water Resistant

Did you know that the exterior surfaces of a large proportion of boats are fashioned from white oak? White oak possesses decay and water-resistant properties that add to its longevity, making it a hardwood flooring material that stands the test of time. As a closed grain wood, white oak has small pores which help prevent moisture from penetrating its surface and causing potentially irreparable damage. This makes white oak flooring an ideal option for kitchens and other areas within your home that are susceptible to moisture damage. Keep in mind that if you do happen to spill something on your white oak flooring, you should still clean up the spill promptly to further mitigate the chances of moisture damage.

Cost Efficiency

Oak trees are prevalent in many parts of the world and are also relatively easy to repopulate. This not only lowers the cost of white oak flooring, but additionally makes it an eco-friendly flooring option. You can save even more by choosing domestic white oak which is grown locally within the United States. And when you take white oak’s durability into consideration, its cost efficiency is multiplied due to the money white oak saves you by helping prevent the potential costs of repair and replacement.
