Red Oak flooring occupies more square feet in North America than any other wood. This is Northern Red Oak, which is the slowest growing, and harder than the cheaper Red Oaks from sources to the South. We call it “country” grade because it allows for any feature from the log to be included. It’s in a brown box from a premier manufacturer and has their most durable state-of-the-art finish. This flooring is suitable for above grade installations, and can be nailed, or glued with the appropriate mastic. The finish has a limited twenty five year residential warranty.
