Why Choose Oak Flooring?
With winter just around the corner, everyone is going to be spending a lot more time indoors. That means that it's the perfect time to make our homes more beautiful! A fantastic way to change the look of a room, as well as enhance its practical value, is to install brand new flooring.
At JAS Timber, we offer a wide variety of flooring options. When it comes to choosing a material, the undoubted top-class choice is oak. Check out this edition of our blog, in which we reveal just some of the numerous advantages of choosing oak flooring components from JAS Timber.
When it comes to aesthetics, oak is hard if not impossible to beat. The natural material boasts a wonderfully warm visual appeal, bringing an elegant and luxurious appearance to any room. Timeless, oak works beautifully with all kinds of interior decoration schemes, whether contemporary or traditional.
When compared to carpets, oak floors offer countless advantages. Smooth and solid, oak does not attract dust or dirt and does not trap allergens: these qualities result in much-improved air quality as well as reducing maintenance requirements. Inevitable spillages can be remedied by simply wiping or mopping and you won't have to deal with any tenacious stains.
Oak is a robust and especially durable material which means it can be used successfully even in high-traffic areas, withstanding footfall and other impacts without any damage. This long-lasting quality ensures that, even though the initial financial outlay may be higher than with lesser flooring materials, oak floors are an investment that represents exceptional cost-effectiveness. As oak flooring is so desirable, installing it can result in a substantial increase in the value of your property.
As a natural insulator, oak is the ideal material for floors, helping to maintain indoor temperatures and decreasing energy usage. As well as retaining warmth during the colder months, the insulating effect also acts in reverse and keeps rooms cool during summer.
The oak flooring components supplied by JAS Timber utilise an effective, efficient tongue-and-groove fixing system, which makes them easy to install even for people who are not particularly experienced with DIY.
