Benefits of White Oak Flooring
- Affordability. White Oak is a domestic hardwood species that’s easy on the wallet.
- Quality. Though white oak hardwood floors are economical, they’re also durable and can last a long time with proper maintenance. The species scores a 1360 on the Janka hardness scale, which means it is easy to work with yet still strong enough to withstand scratches, impacts, and shoe scuffs. Therefore, it is durable enough to be used in high traffic areas.
- Versatility. White oak is naturally a light-colored wood, but it can also be stained in many other hues to match your design vision. Today there are many options besides reds and browns; lighter woods like white oak also take well to trendy gray or whitewash stains.
- Marketability. White oak’s neutral and versatile look will appeal to many homeowners, making it a good floor to invest in when you have resale in mind. Just make sure to go with a standard colored stain or opt for unstained white oak.
