Red Oak has a generally even grain. Because it grows slowly, oak is notable for having many growth rings on each board. Variations in color are very limited over time, even if the floor is exposed to intense light. Nevertheless, Classic Floors Chicago applies a UV protector at the finishing stage to preserve all the luster of its original color.
The sapwood of the oak ranges from white to pale brown, while the heartwood is reddish brown. Trough floor staining darker color tones or the wood floor could be achieved.
