American White Oak Engineered Flooring
When it comes to selecting the best flooring for your home, it is normal to feel overwhelmed by all the choices. From vinyl flooring to solid wood flooring, there are a plethora of options in the flooring market today – this might not make the decision any easier especially since the choice of flooring sets the foundation of an interior. With the advancement of technology, a wider range of durable and stable flooring is being engineered – all promising longevity and versatility.
Amongst the many options, wood flooring, be it solid timber or engineered, remain as popular choices amongst designers and homeowners looking for timeless materials that are long-lasting. Manufactured from different types of wood species, the common ones made available in flooring shops in Singapore include oak, maple, cherry, walnut, mahogany, and teak. Of these, American white oak is one of the most popular species used to manufacture engineered and hardwood flooring.
Benefits of White Oak Flooring
Similar to European oak, American white oak is lightly coloured with a slight yellow-brown undertone. It also has less graining, lending a more modern look. If you are interested in white oak flooring, its list of benefits is sure to impress. Some of these include:
With a Janka hardness scale of approximately 1360, white oak is extremely resilient, especially in comparison to red oak. Even American white oak engineered flooring is durable due to its multiple layers of hardwood backing.
- Ages Well
Most products that are made of wood ages with time and acquire a warm patina. However, white oak does not show its age since it does not darken much through the years – this keeps your flooring looking pristine for a long time if well maintained.
- Resistance to Decay
A product of nature, this wood species is resistant to decay and is relatively water-resistant. This makes it an excellent choice for powder rooms and entryways of your homes.
