Solid Prefinished Hardwood
Installing hardwood flooring is a big decision for any homeowner.
Whether you are replacing your existing hardwood floor, carpeting or tile, choosing the right materials will have a large influence over your entire room and home design for years to come. The best flooring choice will not only make your home look beautiful, but will also add to its overall value. But if you have your heart set on adding hardwood flooring to your whole house or an individual room, chances are you will be faced with a lot of decisions you weren’t expecting.
That’s why choosing between unfinished and prefinished hardwood flooring is an important investment decision and will affect the value added to your home or commercial space. Contact us today!
What is Prefinished Hardwood?
Prefinished hardwood flooring is characterized by having several layers of urethane coating that makes the wood gleam and brings out its natural beauty. Prefinished flooring has the easiest and most efficient hardwood installation process, as it is already sanded, sealed, and just needs to be nailed in place.
We carry prefinished hardwood flooring from various manufactures in hundreds of stain colours.

The Advantages of Prefinished Wood
Prefinished wood flooring is the best avenue when cost and convenience are major factors for your flooring project. Prefinished floors means less mess, which has obvious advantages, especially if you have children or pets that you don’t want exposed to fumes and other installation by-products.
Prefinished wood can save you money because applying the finish at the factory reduces labor costs. It may not have as much of an effect on the overall cost, as say the species of wood you select, but you’ll definitely notice the difference. For all these reasons, prefinished wood flooring is also the obvious choice for flooring upgrades in existing homes.
The process of prefinishing a wood floor also results in a more durable finish, making it a wise choice for kitchens and other high traffic areas. This durability is especially important in subground or high humidity areas of your home. In fact, if you’re planning on installing your hardwood flooring below ground level, you should probably opt for prefinished engineered wood flooring to help the floor withstand the harsher conditions.
Prefinished wood floors may costs less per square foot to install because you don’t have all the labor involved in sanding, staining, and applying the coats of finish, which can take several extra days to finish the job. Installation is much faster as well.
