If you’ve been considering installing hardwood floors in your home, you may know by now that the options are endless when it comes to current wood flooring trends – from the types of wood, to grain patterns, to the different sizes and color choices.
When it comes to selecting hardwood flooring, you may also be familiar with the fact that the process typically includes the addition of a finishing coat after the wood has been installed. Even though this may be the traditional method, it doesn’t mean it’s the only method.
An alternative to the traditional unfinished or raw wood floors, is Prefinished Hardwood flooring which is finished – sanded, stained, and coated with polyurethane — in a factory. Prefinished wood flooring can be a great choice for your home or business, and here are the top 3 reasons why you should consider it.
- Easy Maintenance
Depending on your lifestyle, standard hardwood can require some commitment to maintenance a little sooner than that of Refinished Hardwood flooring does – in fact, you may only need to truly maintain it every several years.
- Durability & Longevity
The lack of maintenance needed with Prefinished Hardwood can be in large part due to its durability. Prefinished Hardwood floors are tough and can take a lot of use. While scratching and other damage can be a concern with any wood flooring, you should find that damage is much less likely to occur with Prefinished Hardwood than more traditional options.
Durability leads to longevity, and Prefinished Hardwood Flooring is a great choice when it comes to this, as it often stays in good shape for over twenty years.
- Simple Installation Process
Since Prefinished Hardwood is in a nearly finished state when you purchase it, the installation process can be much simpler than it would be with unfinished wood. Often in times, unfinished wood can create a bit of a mess with adjustments and sawdust during installation – also resulting in a longer installation process.
Not only can prefinished hardwood floors be installed more quickly than traditional unfinished wood floors, you won’t have to wait for the wood to be stained, polyurethaned and finished before you get back to using your home normally.
Choosing the Right Flooring
With all the advantages prefinished wood flooring can have over unfinished hardwood, prefinished hardwood floors can often be the better option for your home or business. You can enjoy a quicker installation process and get great-looking results that will last for years without requiring the upkeep and refinishing.
Whichever flooring type you do select, the key is to have the right professionals install it in order for it to truly live up to its expectations – both visually and longevity wise.
