The Janka hardness rating of white oak is also a bit higher than that of red oak, meaning that white oak more durable and resistant to damage.

The advantages of unfinished hardwood flooring
Unfinished wood is essentially the canvas of the wood floor contractor. You can stain them, pretreat them, and use any finish you want, provided the wood is compatible with the products you’re using.
You also are exposed to less risk of complications when installing unfinished wood floors due to the
fact that you’re starting with raw, natural wood. Therefore you know that wood does not contain any leftover products to conflict with the new products you’re putting down.
When it comes to unfinished vs. prefinished wood floors, there’s no competition in terms of which one showcases the natural beauty of the wood. Many prefinished floors have a UV finish which sometimes leads to a “plasticky” appearance, whereas with unfinished wood you are oftentimes able to use European Hardening Oil on unfinished wood to showcase its natural beauty.
