You’ll hear a lot of flooring companies tell you they have “European White Oak,” which is great. But what exactly is European White Oak? What does that mean? And most importantly, what are you paying for when you buy European White Oak?
What is European White Oak?
European White Oak is a vague term. It basically means that it is a white oak from Europe. However, there is a lot of gray area there. There are plenty of different types of this oak, but they vary in quality.
One of the types of European White Oak is French White Oak. French Oak is durable and strong, and is a high-quality European Oak. We use this wood because it is the best type of oak available.
What are the benefits of French Oak?
French Oak is an extremely durable wood, which is why we use it. Engineered hardwood flooring made with French Oak is perfect for families, people with pets, and just about every lifestyle.
Another reason we love the French Oak is because it can be easily customized. This wood has naturally high tannins that help absorb colors. And since we at PurezaWood specialize in custom colors, you can finish your engineered hardwood flooring in whichever color you prefer.
How do I know if my White Oak is French Oak?
Any company using real French White Oak will have no problem producing the papers that prove they’re actually using the wood they’re advertising.
At PurezaWood, we can guarantee we’re using real French Oak, and we can prove it too. We feel it is incredibly important to be transparent with our clients. Investing in hardwood flooring for your home is no small matter; you should know exactly what you’re paying for.
