Red oak hardwood flooring provides a warm touch to any room. Many of our customers throughout the Concord and Walnut Creek, California areas, choose an oak species of wood floor because of its durability and diverse style options.
Oak’s popularity stretches even past the Concord, CA area. In fact it has been the most popular variety of hardwood flooring in North America for many years; over 50% of all the hardwood flooring available today is an oak species.
Oak flooring comes in two varieties: white and red. Both offer unique characteristics. In terms of popularity, red oak is arguably the most common species of wood floor in American homes today thanks to its many advantages.
Characteristics & Style Options
Red oak flooring has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. If you’re looking for a wood floor with a subtle grain pattern, white oak or a birch species may be a better fit for your needs. Like white oak flooring, it can be finished with a clear sealant or stained to nearly any shade. Because red oak is so porous, it is critical for the floors to be properly sealed to prevent damage or staining.
When selecting red oak hardwood flooring, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of widths and grades. Everything from wide planks to the standard strip width, consistent graining to visible imperfections – there are an almost endless number of styles that you can achieve with red oak flooring. It can be a bit overwhelming, but our design associates are ready to assist you and give you their product recommendations. Our design associates help you choose the perfect floors for your home based on a number of factors including your existing decor, color preferences, and budget.
