If you’re looking to add classic charm to your home, hardwood floors are the clear choice. They age beautifully and last a lifetime. Choosing an installation company is easy too, since Good Ol’ Boy Hardwood Floors are Kansas City’s trusted flooring experts. The hard part is deciding what kind of hardwood flooring you want. Oak is the traditional choice, its style and durability proven by hundreds of years of use. The question is: which species of oak will you choose?
The first thing to consider is if you are adding to older hardwood floors. If you built an addition and you want to build out your current floors, you will want to match the original oak species. There is a color difference between red and white oak, so make sure you don’t get a mismatched floor! Our flooring experts can help you determine which species you need.
If you’re installing new floors, you can’t go wrong with either red or white oak. Both species have their own advantages and disadvantages, however. We’re here to help you choose!
