Red Oak Hardwood Floor - Finished
White Oak Hardwood Floor - Finished
Buffalo Lumber's Red Oak and White Oak solid hardwood flooring is NOFMA Certified.
Appearance determines the grade of each hardwood flooring piece. All grades are equally strong and serviceable in your
flooring application. Red and white oak for hardwood flooring boards rank among the top hardwood species used for flooring.
Extremely hard and durable but not too hard to work with.
Rift grain, generally found in oak only, is the straightest grain free from most natural wavy (cathedral)
wood variations. Because of this consistency, density and hardness, Oak hardwood floors retain their beauty
through years of hard use and wear.
Red Oak Hardwood Floor - #1 common grade - unfinished
White Oak Hardwood Floor - #1 common grade - unfinished
