Properties of Red Oak Wood Floors

Natural Red Oak floor

Hardwood floors are a beautiful and durable flooring option that can transform the look of any room. At Southern Lumber we carry a wide range of hardwood and laminate flooring. Of the hardwood floors we offer, red oak is one of our most popular options. There are more than 200 subspecies of red oak in North America. It varies quite a bit depending on the region where the wood is found and the season during which it grew. In general, red oak has a reddish tone, an open grain, and above-average workability—especially for sawing and machining. Sanding and staining is easy with red oak wood floors, as the wood sands well and shows strong stain contrast.
