Prefinished Wood Flooring

Avoid the mess, the hassle and the unpredictability of finishing your floor on site. Let Carlisle take care of it for you!!

Carlisle has the most advanced finishing systems in place to ensure you get the most beautiful wood floor. And whether you want hardwood, pine or distressed wood flooring, a Carlisle Wide Plank Specialist can help you find the perfect color for your home decor.

Give your floor a beautiful future

Historically, the choice between prefinished wood flooring and site finished wood floors involved trade-offs. Prefinishing was more convenient and far less messy, but often produced a cheap “plastic” look. Site-finishing, on the other hand, allowed the use of finer pigments which could penetrate the wood and enhance the beauty of the grain. Unfortunately, site-finishing is messy and time consuming so we developed Carlisle Custom Coat™ a unique process that enhances the rich character and beauty of your prefinished wood floor by combining time-honored techniques with modern technology and giving you ultimate convenience.

State of the art … fit for a masterpiece

Just like our commitment to carefully crafting every floor, we took our time to make sure we could do prefinishing right the first time. Using small batch production, we developed a specialized “three coat” process that protects the value of your investment. It delivers up to three times the durability of site-applied finishes while giving each board a deep hand-rubbed appearance, rather than one that is painted on. It’s a result that no one else can match.

We meticulously sand every inch of your new wide plank wood floors and apply the best available stain and sealer to the freshly sanded wood, under the most ideal conditions. In fact, we apply the final coat in a vacuum chamber so we can coat the tongue and groove on all four sides—an industry exclusive. This creates a moisture resistant floor that will always look like a masterpiece.

It also dramatically reduces the cost and frequency of re-staining your floor in the future, and your prefinished stain will always be easier to re-coat than site-applied coatings.

The finish is green

All Carlisle Custom Coat finishes are designed to be environmentally friendly. It’s not a government mandate, but rather a Carlisle choice. Our finishes contain no measurable VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which can pose a health hazard if they escape into the air.

Guard your masterpiece with the right amount of TLC

Follow Carlisle’s cleaning and maintenance instructions, and you’ll have peace of mind in knowing that our professionals will help you protect your wide plank floors and give them a beautiful future to maximize your investment.
