Oak boards – characteristics 

What characterizes an oak? Oak has been associated with great ongoing popularity for centuries. Its characteristic feature is an exceptional hardness and strength. Extremely hard oak wood is resistant to different types of mechanical damage, such as cracks, scratches or abrasions or shrinkage. To preserve these oak features and to further increase its resistance to cracks, it is necessary to properly process oak lumber by thoroughly drying the wood. The oak boards are then perfectly processed. It is worth noting that, despite the considerable hardness of oak wood, it is extremely prone to processing, such as bending, gluing and dying which enables a wide use of this type. One of the advantages of oak planks is their aesthetic value. The characteristic greyish-yellow colour of oak changes according to irregularly distributed straight grains which together create a rough effect that works in any interior. It is necessary to mention that factors such as time, humidity and sunlight contribute to the gradual change of the natural colour of the oak to a darker one.
