Red Oak. Quercus Rubra.
- Oak wide plank floors are a classic choice for any interior. There are over 60 species of Oak in the United States. Northern Red, grown in the northeastern United States, is prized for its color, superior strength, and tight grain—the result of colder weather and shorter growing seasons.
- Northern Red Oak is a very hard and impact-resistant wood, ideal for high traffic areas. Red Oak scores a 1290 on the Janka hardness scale, making it among the hardest of all the North American hardwoods.
- Oak is more open to receiving stains and finishes than many other woods. Because Oak pores absorb stain so well, a wide variety of finish tones from light to dark can be achieved. As a result, your Red Oak floor can be finished bleached, natural, dark espresso--or anything in between.
