White Oak has forever been a symbol of strength. With longer rays and more whorls than its Northern Red Oak counterpart, White Oak has a decorative element that is amplified when stain is applied. Like Northern Red Oak, it can make any room feel cozy or stately depending on the stain. Oak was even used for ship building in Colonial America. These Talon planks are natural grade and possess a perfect balance between elegance and character. The clear, semi-gloss finish specifically designed by Sherwin Williams brings out the natural beauty of the wood. Planks are 1/2" thick and 5" wide for a classic hardwood floor. A 50-year warranty is included. Ready to install matching molding is also available. All Talon flooring is proudly made in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. Talon White Oak harvesting is FSC certified for environmental sustainability, and Talon floors never include added formaldehyde. In independent, third party testing, Talon was also ranked #1 in scratch resistance and found to be four times more durable than other leading brands.
