Oak Flooring

Oak Hardwood

Oak hardwood flooring is typically made from red or white oak.

The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown, while the heartwood has a pinkish-brown tone. It comes in four different grades: quartersawn, select, #1 common, and #2 common.

White oak is similar to red oak but is slightly denser and has longer rays. The sapwood is light colored, and the heartwood is light to dark brown. White oak comes in the same four grades as red oak.
