I am thinking about purchasing red oak hardwood floors. With a big family, pets included, realistically, how long can I expect red oak hardwood floors to last?

RE: Thinking of buying red oak floors
To expand on Patino's answer, many factors can determine the lifetime of red oak floors. Is the product protected with several coats of a durable finish such as aluminum oxide or ceramic impregnated urethane? More coats will add protection to the floor when properly installed, thus increasing the lifetime. Other factors include traffic levels, humidity and temperature patterns, care and maintenance…and so on. So to answer your question, they may last a lifetime or they may not depending on several factors.

Red oak can be enviromental as well if cut in US or Europe there are a lot of rules, if you get the brazilian cherry you can be sure that some forest has been cut and not even one tree planted to recover.
