Unlike unfinished hardwood, prefinished hardwood is finished at the factory, which means you don't have to worry about sanding, staining, or sealing on-site. This makes installation faster, easier, and less messy.
At Creative Flooring Solutions, we work with some of the best prefinished hardwood flooring brands in the industry, including Somerset, Superior Flooring, Shaw, Bruce, Mohawk and others. With a wide range of styles, finishes, and colors to choose from, we can help you find the perfect flooring option for your home.
The main difference you'll notice between prefinished and raw onsite finished floors is prefinished floors have a micro-bevel edge while onsite flooring is completely smooth from board to board because of the sanding.
Prefinished hardwood flooring is flooring that has already been sanded, stained, and finished at the factory before being delivered to the installation site.
Prefinished hardwood flooring offers several benefits, including a faster and less messy installation process, a wider range of finishes and colors, and greater durability.
Prefinished hardwood flooring may be slightly more expensive than unfinished hardwood flooring due to the added labor and materials needed to finish the flooring at the factory.
Yes, prefinished hardwood flooring can be refinished, although the process may require more time and effort than refinishing unfinished hardwood flooring. The flooring is usually 3/4" thick, the same as unfinished hardwood flooring.
To clean and maintain prefinished hardwood flooring, you should regularly sweep or vacuum to remove dirt and debris, wipe up spills and stains promptly, and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning tools.
With proper care and maintenance, prefinished hardwood flooring can last for decades, making it a durable and long-lasting flooring option.
The installation time for prefinished hardwood flooring varies depending on the size and complexity of the installation, but it is generally faster than the installation time for unfinished hardwood flooring.
