What are the advantages of prefinished Heart Pine flooring?
Prefinished Heart Pine flooring lets you avoid the mess and inconvenience of finishing a floor on site, while also reducing the time and cost of installation. When a floor is finished in your home or business, the sanding process coats everything in a fine layer of sawdust, and the process of sealing the floor requires you to vacate the premise for a day or two. Those inconveniences are eliminated with prefinished Heart Pine flooring. Additionally, prefinished floors can be treated with stronger stains and seals then can be used on site, providing greater protection against wear and tear.
What does Carlisle offer in prefinished Heart Pine flooring?
Carlisle’s Custom Coat® finishing process results in prefinished Heart Pine flooring that looks and feels like floors finished on site. This is no small achievement – traditionally, prefinished floors have often had a “plastic” look and consumers found them more difficult to maintain and to touchup as floors showed signs of age. At Carlisle, we perfected a process that combines time-honored techniques with modern technology for a superior pre-finishing process. Each board has a deep hand-rubbed appearance rather than one that is painted on. A three-coat process delivers three times more durability than site-applied finishes, and we apply the final coat of sealant to all four sides of the boards to create a more moisture-resistant floor.
Advantages of prefinished Heart Pine flooring from Carlisle include:
- Widths up to 11″ wide – most prefinished floors only go up to widths of 5″.
- Environmentally friendly processes – once cured, Carlisle prefinished Pine plank flooring will contain no measurable VOCs.
- Lightly softened edges to enhance the beauty of each plank.
- High-quality sealants that enhance the natural beauty of the wood and are easier to maintain.
Are all Carlisle floors available as prefinished flooring?
Yes. Any new wide plank floor from Carlisle may be ordered as a prefinished floor.
