It’s sample day at Logs End and we find ourselves working with the Quercus Alba – otherwise known as White Oak.

Regarded as the pre-eminent tree in eastern North America, everything about this magnificent tree is worthy of a second look. From the stunning light bark (which ranges from white to grey) to its massive canopy with majestic branches, the White Oak is also prized in the hardwood flooring world thanks to its light colour and tight grain. The fact it can hold a variety of stain colours and is significantly harder than its Red Oak counterpart makes White Oak a popular and durable flooring choice for high-traffic residential homes and even commercial environments.

Come view our newest samples of Heritage White Oak Hardwood Flooring at the Logs End showroom at 1520 Triole Street in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. If you are unable to visit during our regular business hours, please feel free to request an after-hours appointment.
