The Basics of Red Oak Hardwood Flooring

Red oak flooring has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. The grains in red oak flooring are also often thought of as more “wild” or having more character than those of white oak flooring, which tend to be finer and more uniform.  Like white oak flooring, red oak 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. A number of factors go into these decisions as you consider everything from wide planks to narrow strips, consistent graining to visible imperfections.  Don’t let the process overwhelm you, though; at Floor Coverings International serving Medford and Klamath Falls, we’re here to help.  Our design associates will look at many other factors to give you their final product recommendations.
