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 "Rustic Grade"?
Rustic grade flooring will have knot holes and open character which will readily fill and the most color variation. A limited number of pieces with no tongues which may be face nailed are also permitted.

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.

    • Q:

      Can cork floors be used in kitchens where a table and chairs are being used? I am concerned with the wear and tear of chairs dragging back and forth over a period of time.

        A:

        Floor protection by means of maximum sized felt pads on all furniture and
        caster cup will ensure no heavy denting will occur. Minor dents will
        generally return to original shape do to corks memory.

    • Q:

      Do you recommend gluing this floor to prevent cupping or is nailing adequate?
      Asked on 8/21/2012 by Fred the floor guy from Newberg, OR

      1 answer

      • Staff Reviewer

        A:

        Nailing is adequate provided there are no moisture issues from below that may cause the wide boards to cup.

    • Q:

      What is rustic grade flooring? Is this the same as #2 COMMON oak?

      Also the ad says it comes in varying lengths, strapped in bundles.
      is there a percentage of the bundle that is guaranteed to be over a certain length?

      Someone else asked the lengths of your flooring. The answer was 9 feet to 18 inches. That sounds awfully strange to me. I have the same question and would like clarification.
