Solid Appalachian Red Oak Hardwood Flooring

appalachian red oak floor

A Classic Canadian Hardwood Full of Warmth and Beauty

This beautiful red oak flooring has the typical oak figure with occasional quarter sawn markings. The colour varies from pale to light red-brown with an overall pink hue. Different methods of finishing may be used either to enhance or suppress the colour.

Unlike White & European Oak, Red Oak (Quercus rubra) tends not to change colour with time.

The tree grows along the entire east coast from the Southern States up into the wilds of Quebec.

The northern timber from the Canadian border tends to be lighter and more uniform in colour with less black knots and we buy the timber from this region.

The timber is tough and the floors wear well.
