Red Oak Wide Plank Flooring

The graining pattern of red oak wide plank flooring is straight, consistent, and tight. The heartwood is brown with a reddish hue, while the sapwood is usually very light, ranging from white to light pink patina.

Red oak flooring serves as the industry standard to which the hardness ratings of all other woods are typically compared. With a Janka hardness rating of 1290, wide plank red oak flooring is quite a durable species.

In terms of customizability, red oak flooring can be stained, but it is more difficult to stain than white oak. If you would like to customize your floors with a darker stain, go with white oak over red. Red oak has very little naturally occurring tannin, so there’s little risk of interaction with certain staining techniques.
