Prefinished hardwood flooring: Yes, or no?

Prefinished hardwood flooring: Yes, or no?

As you search for the perfect wood flooring, you'll hear about extensive choices, from species selection to installation layout. One of the most important choices you'll make pertains to the finish.

Your choices include prefinished and site-finished, and each has its own benefits. Here are some facts that could help you choose the right one for your upcoming remodel.

What’s the difference between prefinished and site-finished?

Site-finished wood comes to your home as raw wood needing sanding, finishing, and sealing. This choice offers more stain color choices but needs a much longer installation due to sanding and solid hardwood flooring dry time.

Prefinished products come with stain color, texture, and sealant already attached. That means a much faster installation with fewer color and texture choices.

What are the benefits of prefinished hardwood?

Prefinished hardwood offers one of the most manageable installations in this product line. Your installation team only needs to install the products, so there's no wait time for sanding, drying, or curing.

One of the most sought-after benefits is the finish, which can be much more challenging than site-finished materials. While this is a plus for wood flooring durability, it can sometimes make the refinishing process a little longer.

You’ll also enjoy how easy it is to float these materials, allowing you to walk on your new floors sooner than you might expect.
