Prefinished Hardwood Flooring
If you’ve decided on solid hardwood floors for your space, you will also need to determine if your boards will arrive unfinished or prefinished. Like other steps in your hardwood floor installation, it’s important to look at your options carefully so you can select what’s ideal for your style and space - after all, you deserve the best results for your time and money. Whitetail Hardwood Floors is here to ensure those results by answering your questions and finding solutions to make sure all your installation decisions are made with confidence and ease. Prefinished hardwood flooring has been sanded and finished before it arrives at your home. It is a strong option when cost and convenience are significant factors. With flooring manufacturers adding more and more varieties of finish and style to their selection, there’s a good chance you can find what you’re looking for. Keep in mind, prefinished can still be sanded and refinished in later years, but the wood species and grain will play the primary role in the refinished results.
Benefits of Prefinished Hardwood Flooring
- Prefinished hardwood floors can be walked on immediately after installation since there’s no drying process.
- Though prefinished hardwood tend to cost more than unfinished hardwood since they come pre-sanded, stained, and sealed, you will save on on-site labor. Keep in mind, overall cost might depend more on wood species and area.
- A factory finish also results in a more durable finish, often ideal for kitchen and other high traffic areas. Durability is especially preferable in sub level or high humidity areas of your home, such as basements and other lowgrade rooms.
