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 sold in open, strapped bundles and not sold in boxes.

    30% of boards were bad quality

    By Jan

    About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer

    Pros

      Comments about R.L. Colston 3/4" x 2 1/4" Red Oak:

      3/4" x 2-1/4" natural red oak flooring. Standard stuff except for the numerous knots, holes and splits. They had trouble finding it in the warehouse, and it appeared bundle had been there for a very long time. In general, of the three stores I called, only on gave us the correct information about available inventory. The hand nailer was great -- well priced and easy to use -- just right for part time do-it-yourselfers.

                I had to match an existing 60 year old floor and it blended in perfect, the thickness was right on and there were no unusable pieces in the bundles which I have encountered with other hardwood flooring I have bought before.

                          • Q:

                            my current flooring is 60 years old and is 2 1/4 inch wide. I think it is red oak, and it is stained honey golden.

                            Is this red oak capable of being stained the same color, or do I need white oak natural?

                              It will vary from 19.5 to 21 SF per bundle depending on the mill source.
                              That is why it is sold by the sq ft only.

                            Can you tell me if this is a FULL 3/4" in thickness? Most says it is but upon measurement it is 1/16" of an inch shy of the 3/4"? Thanks for your help.

                              This should measure a full 3/4" with a possible milling variance that allows for 5% out of of tolerance.

                              Unfinished flooring is rough sanded but will require additional sanding after installation to eliminate high lows between the installed flooring due to milling.
                              Unlike prefinished flooring, unfinished flooring is always sanded in place for a smooth finish.

                            I want to blend a existing wood floor in a kitchen with a new floor in a open concept family room. The old floor will be refinished to match the new one.Where can I find information about blending these two rooms to make them appear as one? Is this something a homeowner can accomplish or should it be hired out.

                              Tam, here is an example of a typical 12’x10’ room

                              1st) Measure the rooms Length x width

                              (12’x10’)= 120’ sq ft area

                              2nd) Add *waste percentage to allow for cutting and board selection

                              (120’sqft area + *10% waste) or (120’x10%) = an additional 12 sq ft, for a total of 132sq ft.

                              3rd) Next round up the total to nearest full box.

                              * 5% for Laminates, 8% for Cork and Northern hardwoods, 10% to 15% for selected exotics

                              When installing hardwood diagonally or custom applications add an additional 15%
