Why Oak?

Engineered oak can add a touch of tradition to any room of your home. Oak has a straight grain or a varied pattern of rays and flecks, depending on which sawing technique was used in the manufacturing process. Some distributors carry a “wormy grade” of oak that has knots and wormholes scattered across the wood’s surface. This style is perfect for homes with rustic appeal. Oak is the most popular hardwood flooring material in the United States. Homeowners love oak and they love great investments. An engineered oak hardwood floor is the perfect combination of the two.

Why Engineered?

Unlike solid oak hardwood, engineered oak has a thin top layer of oak with a layer of plywood underneath. It is important to remember, as with all engineered wood, these are still “real hardwood” flooring options and not to be confused with a laminate or luxury vinyl plank. With engineered hardwood flooring, the top layer can be lightly sanded once or twice over the course of its lifetime to remove surface scratches and scrapes. It also stands up to moisture much better than a solid hardwood and won’t warp over time. This makes engineered oak a practical choice for living rooms, bedrooms and other areas that get lots of traffic.

In addition, engineered oak flooring can be installed using a nail-down, glue-down or floating technique, this flexibility makes it a practical choice for homes in Kernersville as it is easier to install than a solid wood floor.
