flagstaff hardwood floors

Oak has been the most popular type of flooring in North American for many years and Flagstaff is no exception. In fact, today, over 50% of hardwood floors are one of the two species of oak: white oak and red oak. At Floor Coverings International Flagstaff, we help Flagstaff families choose the right flooring for their homes. Here is some more information about red oak.

Gorgeous Colors

Red oak flooring provides a traditional look in a durable material that can be stained to match any taste. This gorgeous hardwood has a warm, pinkish hue with prominent grain lines. Like white oak flooring, it can be finished with a clear sealant or stained to nearly any shade. The stain will go on smoothly and easily for nice, even color because red oak is highly porous.

Countless Options

When you select red oak flooring, you get to choose from a variety of widths and grades. We carry everything from wide planks to narrow strips, consistent graining to visible imperfections. The countless varieties of red oak flooring can be a bit overwhelming, but your design associate at Floor Coverings International Flagstaff will help you consider your décor, color preferences, and many other factors to make their final product recommendations.

Strong and Sturdy

With a Janka hardness rating of 1,290, red oak is built to handle everyday wear and tear. With minimal maintenance, your red oak floors will easily last for generations.


Red oak is native to New England, where it is sustainably grown and harvested. When you choose red oak, you choose a flooring option that does minimal damage to the environment. You also support our national economy.
