OAK HARDWOOD FLOOR

Create a classic, rustic or traditional look for your space with beautiful Oak flooring from Metro Hardwood Floors. Because Oak grows slowly, it produces a more pronounced growth ring pattern and thus a more grainy or rustic look. The look of Oak wood flooring has been a standard for many years not only because of its charming character but its great strength, resistance to color change and wear and tear. Their high tannin content makes Oak trees very resistant to insect and fungal attack, which means they are generally a common and reliable wood species, and ultimately, a great value.
There are over 600 different known species of Oak, and while we can't carry them all, we do carry a very large selection of Oak hardwood flooring, including European White Oak, American White Oak, and Red Oak. Natural White Oak is a golden brown color while Red Oak has a more pinkish tone. All of these are available in a wide variety of widths and pre-finishes, and as either solid or engineered Oak flooring.
If you like the appeal of an Oak floor but want a more classic or refined look for your space, we also have a selection of premium Oak hardwoods that give you less grain and character, and more uniformity in color, texture and overall appearance.

Oak Hardwood Hardness Rating

White Oak has the highest Janka hardness rating out of the Oak hardwood family. It sits at 1360, which is just a shade above Red Oak at 1290. Oak hardwood is about the same hardness as Ash and Bamboo, but not as hard as a couple other domestic hardwoods like Maple or Hickory. Oak is, however, harder than several domestic hardwoods including Teak, Walnut, Cherry, Mahogany and Chestnut.

Oak Hardwood Countries of Origin

White and Red Oak trees used for domestic hardwood flooring are almost exclusively found in eastern Canada and the U.S., from the Maritimes and southern Quebec and Ontario, west to Minnesota and south to northern Florida and eastern Texas.
