About White Oak Molasses Flooring
White Oak Molasses is a rich medium brown wood, which gives this style great depth. The warmth of the color can be matched with any type of décor and will certainly be a focal point in any room!
White oak is a timeless piece with quite an extensive history. This species is commonly found in North America, with some trees living over 4 centuries. Due to its abundance, this wood is a staple in many American homes.
The fine graining pattern of white oak gives the wood traditional appeal and wide planks accentuate these features. The heartwood is light to medium brown, while the sapwood is usually white to light brown in color.
White oak has tyloses that give the wood a closed cellular structure, allowing this species to readily accept stains and paints yet protecting it from water and rot. If you’re looking for a dependable style choose white oak over red oak, for added strength and less fluctuation in the wood.
Due to its prevalence, white oak is considered a sustainable wood, making the carbon footprint of this style less than that of exotic species. The efforts of various forestry protection programs to replant oak trees further contributes to the eco-friendliness of this wood.
Reliable and historic, you can’t go wrong with this species!
