Reclaimed oak wood flooring offers many advantages over choosing composite flooring. Once it has been prepared and fitted you will certainly be able to tell the difference between the two and you will have a material that is strong enough to last a lifetime.
Because we like real oak flooring so much at Beeston Reclamation we want to make sure you are aware of the following advantages.
Oak flooring is incredibly durable
If you only want to replace or lay flooring once, choose oak. As long as it is reasonably well looked after, it has the right qualities to survive even the heaviest traffic in the home. If you do get marks on it, all you need to do is sand it and the flooring will look as good as new.
The colour will change but never fade
Oak actually becomes more colourful as it ages making it one of the few things in life that look better as the years pass by.
Oak flooring never goes out of fashion
If you’re worried about your flooring going out of fashion, this is unlikely to happen. Oak flooring has been with us for many hundreds of years everywhere from grand country houses to libraries and other public buildings. In the home it will continue to look sophisticated and will complement any style you choose.
