Why choose oak flooring?

Solid wood flooring is a natural 100% wood product with each board coming from just one piece of solid wood which is cut down to the desired size, typically between 18 and 25 centimeters. The style of the cut of the wood can vary from flat-sawn, which is the most recognized style with a triangular grain, to quarter-sawn where the material is divided up into quarters, then rift-sawn, which gives a finish where the grain is horizontal. After the cutting process is complete, the material is put into a kiln for drying and then finished. Solid wood flooring is seen as a great way to give your home or office a warm, rustic and natural feel.
