Known as the hardest and most durable of the Oaks, Rift
and Quartered White Oak engineered flooring is an
excellent flooring material because of its superior
durability and variety of unique finishing options. Its distinct vertical grain and tiger striping hallmark this type of Oak. It is achieved by rift and quartering - cutting at a 90-degree angle from the growth rings of the log.
Long revered for its distinctive beauty, it was the signature wood for Craftsman-style, Mission Oak homes and furniture popular during the Arts and Crafts movement.
More than just a beautiful surface, Rift and Quartered White Oak engineered flooring is very dimensionally stable and durable - more than any other species of Oak. Finished to your individual specification, the result is a stunning floor that will make a statement for generations to come.
Like a fingerprint, each piece of TreeSmart™ Engineered Flooring, as well as the finished floor, is unique. Wide variations in character markings, color and grain should be expected and appreciated for their inherent beauty. Photos on this website are for reference and inspiration only. The actual floor characater and colors will vary.
