The Advantages of Solid Oak Flooring
Installing new flooring can completely transform the look of a room. Here at JAS Timber, you can choose from a variety of flooring options but by far the best is our selection of oak flooring components. In this edition of our blog, we'll reveal some of the many advantages of choosing oak as a flooring material.
The first and most obvious advantage of oak flooring is its uniquely beautiful aesthetic appeal. As a natural material, oak has a wonderful, warm appearance that is an absolute delight to behold. Oak has a timeless quality that works well with a wide variety of interior design schemes, adding a touch of luxurious elegance to a room.
Compared to other flooring materials, real timber has much lower maintenance requirements. They do not naturally attract dust and dirt like carpets and can easily be kept clean with a quick vacuum or sweep. Any spills can be quickly mopped away and there's no danger of any stains being left behind.
The innate durability of oak cannot be understated. Solid and robust, oak flooring is ideal for use in even the most high-traffic areas of a building, where it will withstand footfall without damage for generations. As they are so long-lasting, oak floors represent incredible value for money. This quality is further enhanced by the fact that oak floors are an extremely desirable element within a property and, as such, can dramatically increase its value.
Oak is a natural insulator and can help to maintain a pleasant ambient temperature indoors, retaining heat during winter and keeping the property cool during the hotter months of summer. The material also offers exceptional acoustic insulation properties.
The solid, smooth surface of oak flooring components means that it does not trap allergens like dust, pet fur and pollen in the way that carpets do. This results in much better indoor air quality.
Oak flooring components from JAS Timber are crafted with a tongue-and-groove fixing system. This makes them especially easy to install, even if you are a novice DIYer. Like every product we supply, our oak flooring is guaranteed to be of the finest possible quality and brought to you at the most competitive price.
