When it comes to your home, you love a classic, natural look. For your floors, that means nothing can beat natural hardwood. One of the most popular wood options in America is oak flooring. It makes sense—oak trees are found in every U.S. state except Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii. At Anderson Flooring, we can help you enhance the look of your Norfolk, Virginia, home with this beautiful and durable flooring product. We are a family-owned and -operated business for two generations. Our in-house, five-star rated, and friendly installation team is comprised of professionals who will deliver results you’re sure to love.

Red Oak vs White Oak

We offer both premium red oak and white oak flooring. Which one is right for your home? While the two species are similar, some subtle differences can make all the difference for you. Here’s what to expect from each:

White Oak

White oak has a very smooth look to it. The grain is less pronounced, which can make it look a bit more modern and less rustic. White oak is slightly harder than red oak and also a bit more water resistant.

Red Oak

People who love red oak embrace the more pronounced grain patterns that give it a truly natural appearance. It also has a slight pinkish tint to it and is a little bit lighter than white oak. Because of its more pronounced grain, red oak isn’t as smooth as white oak, and for that reason, it can trap water and be slightly less water resistant. But that same graining can make scratches and dents less visible.

Both varieties are very durable and can be stained to offer improved water resistance and the lightness/darkness that you want. There is not a major price difference, either. At Anderson Flooring, we pride ourselves on educating our customers in their flooring options. We’d be happy to help you discover which oak flooring option would be best for you.

“Anderson did a great job installing a new floor in home, taking the time to work with me with the oddities of a home built in the 1940's. They took the time to manufacture trim to match the old, outdated style and it matches perfectly. I am very pleased with the extra steps taken to ensure the work was done well and looks like it is original, including the baseboard. Well done to the crew!”
