Prefinished hardwood flooring, also known as "factory finished flooring," means the stain and finish are applied during manufacturing in a controlled environment. Prefinished flooring comes in both solid hardwood where it is wood all the way through and engineered where it is made up of layers where only the top layer is true hardwood. Engineered is a good option on concrete where solid is not feasible or if you want hardwood planks over 5" wide.
Prefinished hardwood flooring is durable, low maintenance and comes in a wide variety of wood species, colors and textures. The stains and coatings are applied over real hardwood and dried in a controlled factory environment, creating a durable finish and this means getting your flooring project finished quicker.
Can you sand and refinish prefinished hardwood floors?
Depends. You can sand and refinish solid hardwood prefinished flooring multiple times. Engineered flooring only has a few layers of real wood and may not be able to sanded.
We install prefinished flooring in any situation or location of the home besides a full bathroom due to the moisture. In basements, we recommend LVP since it is 100% waterproof. Many times, guests will ask if the prefinished floors are prefinished or done onsite because they can't always tell. We take the time to make sure the flooring installed correctly and looks great no matter if it is prefinished hardwood flooring or onsite finished.

My wife and I did a lot of looking around for the best flooring installer, and had 4 different people/organizations come out to give us a quote to replace almost all the floors in our home. Every other quote was 20+% higher than Jason, BUT that was not the reason we decided to use him! Jason was so honest, knowledgeable and upfront with every single expense and potential problem areas which were not addressed by any of the other people. This initially was a shock because it left us thinking... How could the most professional and honest person of also be the most affordable?! Long story short we went with Jason, and my wife and I could not be more happy. He and his team were better than we could have ever hoped for. There were some previously mentioned "bumps in the floor", but Jason and his team came up with some alternative options in no time at all. A++ Work would recommend for all flooring solutions! Thanks, Jason and everyone at Creative Flooring Solutions!
