Brazilian Oak, also known as Tauri, is similar to North American Red Oak, but 13% harder. It ranges from tan to medium brown in color, and has a medium graining pattern. In addition to providing the highly sought after "wheat" color associated with domestic oak, Brazilian Oak provides the look more affordably. In addition to being economically and visually appealing, this hardwood is also very resistant to decay, impact, and insects, ensuring long lasting enjoyment of a Brazilian Oak floor.
