American Oak trees are grown extensively across the East Coast of the United States, making American Oak one of the pre-eminent hardwoods of eastern North America.
It is a popular choice for flooring due to its pronounced grain pattern. The timber typically has a fine grain that is strong and visible with a few markings.
American Oak responds well to stains and polishes, meaning that a multitude of colours can be achieved using this type of timber, adding to its versatility and enhancing the appearance of the oak.
This highly attractive timber varies from a warm and pale brown, with a pink to red-brown hue.
American Oak typically portrays a straight-grain with a coarse texture. However, both the colour and the texture of the oak will vary depending on the growing region of the American Oaktree.
American Oak flooring exhibits a modern and polished appearance and perfectly complements a contemporary home design.
American Oak is often used in:
- Interior Applications (Flooring, Furniture, Joinery, Panelling)
- Exterior Applications (Decking & Cladding)
