Red Oak is America's most popular wood floor choice!
It is the benchmark for strength serving as the industry standard of hardness with a Janka hardness rating or 1,290. Its reddish-brown color tones give rooms of any style - from rustic to contemporary - a warm and cozy feeling. 
Red Oak will retain its beauty through years of wear and is almost unaffected upon sunlight exposure.

What is "Natural Grade"?
Natural Grade has some color variation, mineral coloring and small knots. It can also be referred to as #1 or 2nd grade.

Please note unfinished flooring is sold in open, strapped bundles and not sold in boxes.  This product  must be purchased in bundles.  Bundle size may vary.

Happy with this product

By William

from Atlanta


  • Easy assembly
  • Exactly what I needed
  • No defects


    Best Uses

      Used this to remove carpet and upgrade a stair landing. 3/4" tongue and groove worked well and was cheaper (much cheaper) than plain 3/4" oak from an improvement store.

        • Good Looking Finished


        • Low Quality Control

        Best Uses

          The mill needs to improve on their quality control. Board widths were not the same, some were as much as 1/16" different to other boards and required many modifications to get a clean fit. End cuts were not sqaure creating significant gaps between end joints.

          Service and delivery comments:

          My order was placed, arrived, and pick-up in less then two weeks. Then I recieved at least 6 more "your order is in" e-mails. It took 3 contacts to the store and corporate to get it corrected and quit receiving the notifications.
