madison oak hardwood flooringIn Madison, WI oak flooring adds an air of warmth and tradition to any room and is one of the most popular species of hardwood flooring. Oak floors can have a straight grain or a varied pattern of rays and flecks. Oak is also available in wide array of grades to complement just about any interior décor.

Versatility & Durability

Oak’s neutral tones make it a popular choice for wood flooring in Madison because it can be stained to a nearly limitless number of hues. Both red and white oak rank high in the hardness scale, giving them added durability and resistance against scrapes and dents. (White oak ranks slightly higher, just below cypress and bamboo.) Because of its durability, oak flooring can withstand being refinished multiple times.

Other Options

If you love the appearance of hardwood oak flooring but not the cost or maintenance of a traditional hardwood floor, consider choosing laminate or engineered wood flooring in an oak grain. You won’t get the durability of solid hardwood oak, but you’ll still be able to choose from a variety of shapes, styles, colors and widths.

Long-Term Value

Oak flooring is a great investment for your home. Oak’s simple and traditional style make it a flooring option that isn’t going out of style any time soon.  You’ll be able to enjoy your oak floor for decades, and if and when it comes time to sell, and solid oak floor will pay off.
