Red Oak Make a Striking Wood Floor for San Francisco Home
Thinking about a Red Oak floor? It’s a choice that many people seeking a rich, high-quality look shy away from, because inexpensive red oak strip flooring, which typically has unattractive grain patterns, is overabundant in the market.
But, in the hands of a Carlisle craftsman, our wide plank red oak is anything but unattractive. Carlisle uses the finest northern grown Red Oak, which is more stable, and can be crafted in wide, long boards, you won't get in any mass produced strip oak floor. It will still have the traditional Red Oak grain, but the wider boards create a more balanced look throughout the floor.
We were delighted recently to get a note from Craig Norleen, project consultant and manager at Crocker Homes Inc. in the San Francisco Bay area. He’s heading up construction of a residence that includes an Heirloom Red Oak floor, in 8-inch face widths.
“[The Homeowners] love the Carlisle wide plank floor,”
Craig Norleen, Crocker Homes Inc.
Craig worked with a Carlisle Wide Plank Specialist to design the floor in wider boards, something that really appealed to the homeowners, who had only been given strip oak flooring options. We provided samples, detailed estimated and worked with each of the project team members including the builder, homeowner, architect and installer to make sure all questions were answered.
“Carlisle is a valued Crocker Homes partner. Carlisle was there at each step in the process helping our architect, owner and installers. Their expertise, ability to listen and ask questions helped our team realize the vision we were trying to create.”

We even made matching vents and stair parts to match.
