Oak flooring products: all about them

Oak is probably the most popular of hardwood floors for a reason. Oak is an extremely durable wood that also can bring a luxurious and prestigious look to space. If you are considering choosing oak flooring, take a look at few advantages that oak offers and why it’s worth trying great oak flooring products. First of all, there are two kinds of oak flooring—solid oak floors and engineered oak floors. Even though solid oak flooring is more durable and can be sanded and refinished many times, it is not very suitable for areas with high temperatures and moisture fluctuations. Engineered oak flooring is composed of layers of real wood veneers, which are bonded together with the top layer of oak to form a  highly stable board. Although it can be sanded and refinished only a few times, engineered floors are resistant to moisture and temperature fluctuations and are suitable for installation over underfloor heating. Secondly, oak flooring also comes in a variety of natural shades, from white to natural to very dark, and can be easily stained to suit the style of your room and your needs. Thirdly, due to high demand, oak wood floorings are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. Finally, to keep the beauty of the oak flooring, some simple maintenance is required. Oak flooring requirements will be different according to your needs, so I recommend talking to a consultant for specific advice about what type of oak floor fits your home and your need the best. Good luck with finding the best product.
