Question: Engineered oil finished white oak
We are replacing our current hardwood - red oak- and really like the wide plank white oak. The one we like the best has an oil finish vs poly. The salesperson said it would be stronger than what we currently have because 1. the finish on engineered wood is much stronger than 1980s finished in place oak, 2. we could buff out scratches with the oil and 3. we could replace specific boards if there is a huge issue over time.
Does anyone have experience with this type of flooring? How hard is it to maintain? How has it held up? I currently vacuum a couple times a week and use a swifter as needed (which is often bc of dog hair).
The brand we like is D&M Flooring, Royal Collection.
We do have kids (9, 11) and a 75lb dog.
