There are two types of oak hardwood flooring: white oak hardwood flooring and red oak hardwood flooring. Both are popular within Flagstaff homes, but each offers a distinctly different look. White oak hardwood contains lighter, golden tones, and red oak hardwood maintains a darker, rosier appearance. Here we’ll be discussing the unique advantages offered by white oak hardwood. We encourage you to read on, and to consider adding this dependable flooring to your Flagstaff home.
White Oak Hardwood Advantages
The Cooler, Younger Sibling of Red Oak—White oak hardwood is often considered to be the more contemporary of the two oak hardwood varieties. It maintains a relatively uniform grain pattern and offers a wide range of options when it comes to wood staining. Its golden hue tends to brighten rooms, making it a popular choice in kitchens.
Durable—Like other hardwood varieties white oak is both strong and sturdy. Its popularity is largely due to both its beautiful appearance and longevity. This flooring stands the test of time over the course of many years, and many homeowners find that they never need to replace their white oak hardwood floors. We particularly recommend white oak hardwood to busy families with pets and children.
Resistant to Water—White oak hardwood is also known for its natural resistance to water. Compared to other wood species, it’s less likely to warp or stain if it comes in contact with moisture. Although we don’t recommend washing your white oak hardwood floors with a mop unless necessary, the water resistance it offers is a great help to homeowners.
