At Floor Coverings International of Mentor, many of our customers choose red oak hardwood for their custom flooring projects. Red oak hardwood flooring is popular with Mentor, Painesville, and Willoughby area homeowners because it provides a warm touch of tradition to any room. Oak has longtime been the most popular variety of hardwood flooring in North America. In fact, over 50% of all the hardwood flooring available today is an oak species.
Red oak flooring has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. Like white oak, it can be finished with a clear sealant or stained to nearly any shade. The stain will go on smoothly and easily for a nice, even color because red oak is so porous.
When choosing the right red oak hardwood for your home, you’ll be able to pick from a variety of widths and grades. With everything from wide planks to narrow strips, consistent graining to visible imperfections, the countless styles of red oak flooring can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily our friendly and knowledgeable Design Associates are there to guide you through the process.
