Red oak is one of the most popular species for wood floors emitting a natural reddish hue, with “Northern” red oak being more uniform in color than other regions. The #1 common grade of red oak has a slightly more open grain pattern which causes a little more dramatic color variation in the overall appearance of the floor giving it an interesting look. Red oak takes stain colors exceptionally well.
This grade of red oak contains prominent variations in coloration along with small knots and streaks. This is a true traditional flooring choice much sought after and installed into homes as early as the late 1800s and early 1900s and still remains a popular choice.
