Oak Santee Wirebrushed: Uncompromising Style
Oak is one of the most celebrated types of wood for flooring and with good reason. It’s beautiful and traditional look complements many interior design options and styles of decorating. Because oak wood’s appearance is so versatile, it often contributes to the resale value of a home. Our Oak Santee Wirebrushed maintains the soft color palette widely appreciated in this wood while retaining more brown tones and less of the yellow hue present in some oak hardwood floors.
What Is Wire-Brushed Hardwood Flooring?
When a floor is “wire-brushed,” it means that the wooden planks have been scraped with a hard-bristled brush to give it a textured appearance. The process reveals the wood grain, helping to bring out the lines from the tree’s growth rings. The result is a subtly rustic, weathered look. In addition to giving your hardwood floors a more eye-catching finish, this abrasion technique helps hide dirt and scratches. This finish is excellent for high-traffic areas while not compromising on aesthetics and luxury.
Oak is a choice wood for wire brushing because of its hardness and significant grain. The natural vein patterns and softer fibers are thoughtfully highlighted in our Oak Santee Wirebrushed flooring.
Engineered for Elegance
Oak Santee Wirebrushed is made of engineered hardwood, which means it’s both durable and beautiful. Engineered hardwood flooring has a layer of solid, real wood on top with a plywood layer running perpendicular beneath it. This construction makes the flooring more robust and stable during changing temperatures and variations in humidity. While often less costly than solid hardwood, it’s challenging to tell the two apart once the engineered wood flooring has been installed.
Some of the Benefits of Engineered Hardwood Flooring Include:
- Unlike laminate flooring, the top layer is real wood.
- A variety of installation options are available, such as laying engineered hardwood directly over tile or laminate if the surface is in decent shape.
- Engineered hardwood is more cost-effective than solid hardwood flooring.
- Like solid wood, it’s available in different species, colors, and styles.
- Engineered hardwood doesn’t warp or swell, is stronger, and is more resistant to temperature fluctuations. For this reason, it’s compatible with heated flooring systems.
- Installation is easier for both contractors and homeowners.
