Prefinished Hardwood Flooring

Prefinished hardwood flooring is a great choice for any flooring project. The format offers convenience and consistency that means peace of mind for any homeowner looking for a beautiful hardwood flooring with a minimum of hassle. Solid prefinished wood flooring comes out of the box microbeveled and with a factory finish of aluminum oxide, which eliminates many of the potential pitfalls that can occur during installation.

No Sanding and Finishing Required

As opposed to prefinished flooring, unfinished flooring requires sanding and top coating with an appropriate oil based or water based finish. If done incorrectly, the finishing process can result in inconsistent coloring, lack of glossiness, and eventual mechanical failure. Most do it yourself installations are done with prefinished flooring for these reasons.

Dust Free Installation

Installing a prefinished floor is a much easier prospect than installing unfinished product. Once the floor is down, you can walk on it immediately, provided that, in the case of a glue down installation, the glue has had time to set. In the case of a nail down installation, you can walk on it immediately. As unfinished flooring requires staining and finishing, these processes take more time and longer to dry, requiring more labor costs.

Naturally Beautiful, Solid Wood

Prefinished solid flooring is a natural product, completely comprised of one species of wood. This can result in more movement in service than engineered flooring, which is comprised of perpendicularly placed plies that form a core attached to the underside of a wear layer of the veneer species. It is important whenever working with solid wood products to take into account environmental circumstances, such as extremely dry, moist, cold, or warm climates. These can affect different wood species in a variety of ways. Proper research of a given species should be performed to ensure that these variables do not result in mechanical failures, such as cupping, bowing, gapping, or checking.
