Hardwood Flooring Tip: The Janka hardness test measures the force required to embed a .444-inch steel ball to half its diameter in a given species of hardwood. It is one of the best measures of the ability of a hardwood species to withstand denting and wear. The Janka hardness test is a great way to choose a wood flooring material that will stand up to your abuse. Oak typically has a Janka hardness rating of between 1200 and 1400 depending on the species of oak while a different species like Brazilian Cherry has a hardness of 2350 to give you an idea of it’s durability.
What Type Of Oak Hardwood Floors Do We Install?
Red Oak – Red Oak is actually the name of the tree and necessarily the color of the wood although some of it does display reddish or darker hues. Red Oak is well known for it’s durability and because it’s such a hardwood, Red Oak resists knicks and scratches which make it a great option for high traffic areas of your home or building. We can provide both light or dark Red Oak flooring and if we can’t find the perfect color or stain match from the factory, we can always finish your hardwood flooring on site.
White Oak – White oak is one of the traditional types of oak hardwood floors and offers a more natural, lighter look. It’s still just as durable as a Red Oak floor (actually a little moreso) and can be used in all areas of your home from living rooms to entryways. Another interesting characteristic of White Oak is that it contains a high concentration of tannic acid which makes it particularly resistant to fungi and insects.
