What is oak flooring?
At Carpet Court we use solid timber from authentic Australian and European oak hardwood, crafting them into engineered oak flooring for a stunningly luxurious flooring solution for any family home. You may also find the exceptionally popular oak aesthetic reproduced in our easy-care hybrid, laminate and vinyl floating floor products.
Genuine oak flooring has a rich and vibrant flowing woodgrain which is stained to create a range of colours to suit every interior décor. It is a very popular timber flooring product, due not only to its high performing, durable properties but also due to its sophisticated natural beauty.
Is oak flooring durable?
Mature and magnificent oak trees have a very long lifespan. Engineered timber floors are made from multiple layers of real oak hardwood, reinforced using advanced manufacturing processes to become an exceedingly durable flooring product.
As leading flooring specialists when we supply and install luxury oak flooring in your home the result is an exceptionally durable and hardwearing floor, highly resilient to wear and tear within the busiest family homes.
Genuine oak flooring attracts substantial manufacturer’s wear and tear warranties, an indication of the outstanding quality and durability this fine flooring product provides.
Whether you choose authentic timber flooring or an oak laminate, vinyl or hybrid floating floor, our top quality oak flooring products deliver excellent scratch resistance as well as carrying a high level of water resistance and being easy to keep clean.
Do oak floors lighten with age?
All genuine timber flooring can fade to a lighter shade and change colour naturally over a long period of time, depending on the conditions. If your floors receive abundant direct sunlight you may expect a small degree of change in colour.
If you have concerns about the potential for beautiful oak timber floors to become lighter with age, chat with the flooring specialists at your local Carpet Court store. Their extensive knowledge and experience is invaluable when it comes to choosing an appropriate type of oak flooring to suit your home environment, lifestyle and budget.
Does oak flooring scratch easily?
Like any flooring product, it is important to care for your floors in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines. With the correct care your beautiful oak flooring will provide your home with many years of high-performing, visibly stunning floors.
Oak timber floors and even the laminate, vinyl and hybrid oak flooring products certainly don’t scratch easily, but if subject to undue sharp and heavy objects many floor surfaces can scratch. Take care to protect your oak timber floors from heavy furniture and clean them in accordance with the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure your beautiful oak floors stand the test of time.
