Red Oak

Chosen for its uniform color by strip flooring mills around the turn of the century, red oak is heavy, hard, tough and fine textured. It is superior in hardness and features a very consistent and well-defined grain pattern. A good choice for commercial or residential high traffic areas. True to its name, red oak displays a magenta tint particularly evident in the heart wood. TimberKnee's red oak planks give you an exciting new look to replace the boring style of the old, common, strip or "kindling" red oak floor!

Red Oak Williamsburg/Select Panel

General Description
The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish reddish brown. The wood is similar in general appearance to white oak, but with a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays. The wood is mostly straight-grained, with a coarse texture.

Working Properties
Red oak machines well, nailing and screwing are good although pre-boring is recommended, and it can be stained to a good finish. It can be stained with a wide range of finish tones. It dries slowly.

Physical Properties
The wood is hard and heavy, with medium bending strength and stiffness and high crushing strength. It is very good for steam bending. Great wear-resistance.

"...the floor is in and looks great! The installation was easy…was well worth the effort because it is beautiful. We were very happy with the quality of the wood. Because of the quality, there was limited sanding that needed to be done on the floor…
left it its natural color, so it makes for a great looking floor.
I can't say enough good things about it, and would and do recommend you to everyone.
