Oak Wood Floors 

Oak is remarkable, mainly for its robustness and its longevity. When it comes to choosing a wood to cover our floors, oak is one of the best choices in terms of beauty, elegance, and durability. Well maintained, oakcan be preserved for several generations. 

You’ve chosen oak wood flooring because: 

  • Oak is a wood that can withstand shocks and impacts. 
  • Oak wood resists moisture well. 


There are many species of oak for hardwood floors. The two species of oak that Québec consumers know best are the red oak and the white oak. 

Red oak wood floors 

The red oak is one of the biggest and most appreciated trees in Québec. It’s also called boreal oak. Red oak wood floors are the more traditional choice among the two types of oak. They’re appreciated for their light golden to pale red colour and their unique grain-like patterns. 

White oak wood floors 

The white oak has been noted as being harder than the red oakWhite oak floors have finer, less pronounced grains as well as warm golden-brown tones. Oak wood floors are also sturdier. Because white oak wood is harder, it tolerates stains more easily than red oak floors. 

If you choose oak wood for your floorsit’s a lifetime investment that will add value to your home when it’s time to sell it.

Important tips for caring for oak wood floors according to the chosen finish 

  • Vitrified oak wood floors: Dust then clean your oak floors using a product for polishing your wood. Choose a metalizing lotion to renovate and revive your vitrified oak wood floors. In addition, consider protecting them from marks by putting felt pads on the legs of your tables or chairs. 
  • Oiled oak wood floors: Above all, don’t use water. You risk making the wood turn grey. Use a suitable cleaning soap and apply a coat of oil every six months. Your oak wood flooring will last longer.
