What is wide plank prefinished Hickory flooring?
Wide plank floors use floor boards that are up to 12” wide and up to 14’ long – much wider and longer than the boards used in traditional commercial flooring. Consequently, wide plank floors have a fraction of the seams that traditional floors require, creating a more expansive and spacious feel and a far less busy look. Wide plank floors allow grain patterns in the wood to be fully seen and appreciated. They also enable the personality of the wood to be fully revealed. Carlisle wide plank Hickory floors are available as both prefinished and unfinished products.
What are the advantages of prefinished Hickory flooring?
Finishing Hickory hardwood flooring at a home or business creates a lot of mess and inconvenience – from the fine sawdust produced during sanding to the stain used to color the wood and the toxic fumes from the sealants used to protect it. When a floor is finished on site, it may not be walked on for a period and the space must be vacant for a day or more to protect inhabitants from the sealant fumes. With prefinished Hickory flooring, all that mess and inconvenience is eliminated. The floor arrives ready for installation, speeding the entire process. Additionally, manufacturers can apply stronger protective sealants to a prefinished floor than are allowed to be used on site at the home or business.
Prefinished Hickory flooring makes installation a breeze.
Prefinished Hickory flooring is easier to install than unfinished flooring, since you can avoid the labor-intensive, time-consuming and extremely messy process of sanding the wood in your home or business and applying stains and finishes. Wide plank prefinished Hickory flooring from Carlisle makes installation even easier, as there are fewer boards to install overall. Carlisle floors can be installed using a combination of glue, staples and nails or direct glue down installation. And because our products are produced with highly exacting attention to specifications, many installers prefer working with Carlisle floors.
