Red Oak Wide Plank Hardwood Flooring

Jewett Farms + Co’s Red Oak flooring has a beautiful moderate to heavy graining that ranges in color from light creamy reddish pinks to shades of brown. Red Oak flooring varies from White Oak due to its pinkish undertones, whereas White Oak has golden/brownish gray undertones. Red Oak flooring conveys a very traditional feel to a room.

Red Oak became a favorite choice of wood for the early American colonists and English craftsmen. Prized for its color, grain and work ability, Red Oak is also versatile, strong and rugged, making it a solid performer in the wide plank flooring realm. Oak stands up beautifully to the rigors of everyday life and is a great choice for high traffic areas. Jewett Farms + Co’s Red Oak wide plank flooring is sourced from mills that use sustainable harvesting practices. This allows for longer plank lengths and maximum heart wood that can only be found in slow growth timber.

Jewett Farms + Co offer both select and character grade Red Oak wide plank floors as well as several cut options (plainsawn, riftsawn and quartersawn) from our New England headquarters. Red Oak has an open grain with coarse, porous texture and a wide range of figuring. Quartersawn planks tend to have flake or butterfly patterning.

New Hardwood Flooring Options

Select Grade Flooring

Select grade flooring planks have a strong uniformity of color and pattern; each plank will blend well with its neighbor. Natural color and grain pattern come through to show the woods specific characteristics but the planks will lack any obvious blemishes or defects. Select grade is a combination of sapwood and heartwood that shows some knots, streaks and open grain patterning such as swirls and burls.

Character Grade Flooring

Character grade flooring planks show more of the natural characteristics of the wood such as knots and color variations. A character grade floor will have a more varied appearance from plank to plank and will include light and dark colors, knots, streaks and wormholes. The finished look is more natural and less uniform than a select grade floor.

Sawing and Cutting Options

All of our wide plank flooring have multiple sawing options available. Choose from Plain Sawn, Quarter Sawn and Rift Sawn.
