What is prefinished hardwood flooring?
Prefinished hardwood flooring is a flooring surface that is sanded, stained and sealed at a manufacturer’s facility before it is delivered to a home or business for installation. In contrast, an unfinished hardwood floor must be sanded, stained and sealed on site in a time-consuming and messy process, often requiring the occupants to vacate the premises for a period of time.
What are the benefits of prefinished hardwood flooring?
Prefinished hardwood flooring allows you to eliminate the mess and inconvenience of finishing a floor on site. Your prefinished floor is delivered ready for installation. Consequently, installation can be completed much more quickly. Additionally, a prefinished floor may allow the manufacturer to use stronger sealants that offer additional protection for the floor which are not available for use on site.
What are the drawbacks of prefinished hardwood flooring?
In the past, some prefinished hardwood flooring has been associated with a cheap or plastic look. Some prefinished floors are not able to be touched up easily by the homeowner, resulting in floors that do not last as long. Additionally, finishing a floor on site may allow installers to use finer pigments that can penetrate the wood more easily. Fortunately, Carlisle Wide Plank Floors has developed a unique finishing process designed to allow prefinished hardwood flooring to look, feel and be refinished just like traditional unfinished flooring.
