Advantages & Disadvantages
The primary benefits of oak flooring are that it is highly durable, easily refinished, and a traditional style. Oak flooring has been used in homes for centuries, and it is known for its characteristic grain pattern. This pattern offers a classic, rustic look that has remained one of the most popular styles for many years. Additionally, oak flooring comes with a long life cycle, because it can be refinished and re-sanded several times without losing quality. This way you can refresh your floors multiple times if they start to look dull or worn. Oak flooring isn’t the most durable hardwood species out there, but it is sturdier than some other species, and definitely sturdier than other flooring types.
However, oak flooring does come with a few drawbacks. If oak is exposed to too much sunlight or heat, it can become bleached or faded. This discoloration can be avoided, though, if you make sure that your oak flooring well-sealed and if you take care to shut your windows or blinds when the sun is most powerful. Oak flooring can also be susceptible to spills and stains, especially if they are oil-based.
