Red oak hardwood flooring provides a warm touch of tradition to any room.  Oak has been the most popular variety of hardwood flooring for many years in North America, and Raleigh is no different. Over 50% of all the hardwood flooring available today is an oak species.

Oak flooring comes in two varieties: white and red.

Red oak flooring has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. Like white oak flooring, it can be finished with a clear sealant or stained to nearly any shade. Because red oak is so porous, stains will go on smoothly and easily for a nice, even color.

When selecting red oak hardwood flooring, our Raleigh and Wake County customers are able to choose from a variety of widths, grades, and styles thanks to our relationships with industry leading manufacturers. Everything from wide planks to narrow strips, stains, finishes – there are a countless number of design combinations. The large number of styles of red oak flooring can be a bit overwhelming, but our design associates will look at many other factors to give you their final product recommendations.
