Advantages & Disadvantages
The main benefits of oak flooring are that it is traditional, highly durable, and easily refinished. Oak flooring has been used in homes for centuries, and it is known for having a very distinct grain pattern. This pattern offers a rustic, traditional look that has remained popular for many years. It isn’t the absolute most durable hardwood flooring out there, but it is sturdier than most other species. Additionally, oak flooring comes with quite a long life. If it starts to dull or look too worn, you can easily have a professional re-sand and refinish the floors again and again to keep them looking fresh.
However, oak flooring does come with a few drawbacks. If exposed to too much bright sunlight, oak flooring can become bleached or discolored. This fading can be prevented by making sure the oak flooring is well-sealed and making sure to shut your blinds or curtains when the sun is especially powerful. Oak flooring can also be susceptible to scratches and absorbing spills, especially if the spills are oil-based. Just make sure to maintain your oak flooring regularly to avoid any lasting damage.

We have access to an enormous selection of colors, stains, and styles of oak flooring, so you’ll surely find an option that fits your project’s specific requirements.
