What is Red Oak Flooring?
Oak flooring comes in two varieties: white and red.
Red oak flooring has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. Like white oak flooring, it can be finished with a clear sealant or stained to nearly any shade. Because red oak is so porous, the stain will go on smoothly and easily for a nice, even color.
When selecting red oak hardwood flooring, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of widths and grades. Everything from wide planks to narrow strips, consistent graining to visible imperfections … the countless styles of red oak flooring can be a bit overwhelming, but our design associates will look at many other factors to give you their final product recommendations.
Benefits of Red Oak Flooring
Red oak flooring is a versatile option that will go with any home decor. And, because red oak is such a traditional style of hardwood flooring, it is an excellent option for resale value. In addition to the classic style of red oak, it is also a durable option that can stand up to heavy foot traffic in a home. Ranking 1290 on the Janka hardness scale, it is tough enough to stand up to daily wear and tear, but not so hard that it is difficult to cut and install.
