This ever-popular classic hardwood has a well-recognized and pronounced grain, which is enhanced by varnish or stain. Red Oak Mouldings are a consistent light brown shade with a hint of red. This oak does not exhibit the open grain or dark gray streaks that are prevalent in Southern Red Oak.
How to Install Mouldings: We recommend prefinishing the mouldings before installing. Install the moulding piece by piece, working your way around the room, leaving the nail heads exposed to allow for any repositioning. Avoid nailing the last 2 to 3 inches in each piece to avoid splitting. Nail in the curved or cove part of the moulding to better hide the nail holes. Nail mouldings into wood studs or jambs. Any good quality finishing nail properly counter sunk works well. C-clamps should be used to secure the moulding in the mitre box for more accurate cuts. Always use scrap wood between the clamp and the moulding to prevent surface damage.
