Oak hardwood flooring offers many benefits to homeowners in the greater Lawrenceville, Norcross. It’s beautiful, durable and will last a lifetime if you take care of it correctly. At Floor Coverings International Lawrenceville, we often recommend this classic hardwood to our customers. Most people have heard of oak’s impressive durability, and they might even be aware of its distinctive grain pattern that so many people love, but there’s one wonderful thing about oak that often goes unnoticed. That’s its wide variety of styles and colors.

 

A Hardwood Made for Stains

 

There are a lot of hardwoods out there that are known for resisting stains. If you choose to have one of these styles stained the process can be time consuming, and it can still end up with color streaks in your floor. Oak on the other hand is known for taking stains and coloring extremely well. This means that you can find a style of oak for almost any home. From wood that’s almost white, to natural warm tones and dark browns, the options are practically limitless.

 

Wood Popularity Means Flooring Variety

 

Oak hardwood has been very popular in the U.S. for centuries. It also grows in a lot of different areas across North America and in relative abundance. This easy access and high demand make it possible for manufacturers to create oak hardwood flooring in a wide range of plank widths and with a selection of grain looks. You can choose rustic-inspired planks that are extra-wide, or slim modern strips with a less pronounced grain pattern.

 

A Wood Installers Love to Work With

 

Despite its impressive durability, oak hardwood is much easier to install than some more unforgiving woods. This means that if any unforeseen challenges come up during the installation process with the size and shape of the room or the condition of the subfloor in your Lawrenceville, Norcross area home, installers should be able to tailor the wood to work for your space. Be sure to call an experienced group of installers in for the project, like ours at Floor Coverings International Lawrenceville. You’ll have these beautiful floors for years to come, so it’s important you start off with a perfect installation!
