Considering hardwood floors for your Orlando home? Congratulations! This is an exciting step. Hardwood floors are beautiful and add significant value to your home. There are many customizations you will make regarding your new floors: species, stain, and finish are all important aspects of the final look. At Floor Coverings International Winter Garden, we are here to help you through every step of the way on your journey to your dream floors. Today we are focusing on finishes and the benefits of opting for a prefinished hardwood over a site-finished hardwood.
The benefits of prefinished hardwood floors:
So what exactly does it mean to have a prefinished hardwood floor? All this means is that each plank is coated with a finish before the installation process. Surprisingly, this slight difference can have some huge benefits!
- Fast installation. It’s hard to ignore the convenience of prefinished flooring. Using wood flooring that has already been finished speeds up flooring installation and limits the disruption to your family’s day to day life. This usually also means that there is less room for complication during the installation process.
- Added protection. Floors that are finished in the factory can be sealed with tougher chemicals. Through integrating hard wearing elements like aluminum oxide, prefinished floors often come with 25+ year warranties.
- Great selection. Prefinished flooring is available in solid wood and engineered versions, giving you a wide variety of options to choose from.
While some may argue that prefinished flooring can never match the beauty of a hardwood floor finished onsite. Others say that prefinishing actually improves the final look, and increases the uniformity of the floor.
