Christian Brothers Hardwood Floors Prefinished Wood Flooring Rhode Island MassachusettsWhy choose prefinished hardwood flooring?

Finished hardwood flooring comes pre-finished from the manufacturer. The floor does not need sanding or finishing. It is ready to go after installation.
Finished hardwood flooring tends to be ideal for high traffic areas, as factory finishing is conducted in the most ideal environmental conditions resulting in a more durable finish. Additionally, finished hardwood flooring typically comes with a manufacturer’s warranty against defects resulting in added peace of mind.

  • You can walk on your new floor immediately. With flooring that is finished on-site using oil-based polyurethane, the homeowner must wait days, sometimes even weeks, before moving furniture back into the room. Even though the floor may be dry to the touch, it will be vulnerable to scraping until the waiting time has elapsed and the finish has fully cured.(Waterborne polyurethane finishes dry to touch quickly but can have varying cure times—some quite long.)
  • No issues with VOCs and your family’s health. For days after applying an oil-based polyurethane, you will smell and breathe in vapors from polyurethane resins and solvents. VOCs have been shown to be carcinogenic, and some waterborne polyurethanes produce them too. Why not buy prefinished so that the curing takes place in a factory, not in your living room?
  • No worries about dust. Dust and errant hairs are the enemy of on-site floor finishing, but these annoyances won’t have any effect on your new prefinished flooring. You will, however, need to take measures to protect prefinished floors if you have contractors tromping around with tools and equipment en route to other jobs around the house.
  • Installation in one session. There’s no necessity of staying home to complete the various stages of an on-site finishing job—sanding, sealing, staining, applying polyurethane and so on. A crew of two had our 300-square-foot solid wood floor installed, with underlayment, in only about two hours.
  • A better finish than what homeowners or contractors can apply on-site. Factory-applied finishes are incredibly durable and often come with a lifetime warranty. The Mullican red oak flooring, shown above, will stay new-looking for longer. It came with a PPG UV-cured resin and nanoparticle coating that is highly scratch- and abrasion-resistant. I can’t even scratch it with my fingernails.
  • Lower cost. Prefinished solid wood floors initially cost more than unfinished wood flooring—about $2 per square foot for a good grade of red oak. But once you factor in finishing costs, prefinished ends up being less expensive.

Why choose unfinished hardwood flooring?

Unfinished hardwood flooring is flooring that comes from the manufacturer in its natural state, requiring sanding and finishing onsite after installation.
There are many advantages of unfinished hardwood flooring. For example, unfinished hardwood flooring is significantly easier to match with existing hardwood floors in your home or office. If you are in need of hardwood floor repairs, or would simply like to extend the hardwood flooring on your property; unfinished hardwood flooring could be the best option for you.
Unfinished flooring gives you options for custom staining and custom installation designs, which can add distinctive style to your house.
There are also more types of flooring available unfinished and many exotic woods are only available unfinished

There are many things to consider when deciding between unfinished and prefinished hardwood flooring, but many people find the following items help them settle on one or the other.

  • Many contractors prefer to wait until the end of the job to finish the floor. That way, a dropped tool or a mortar pebble under a work boot can’t mar the finished floor—and ruin customer relations.
  • Greater choice of finishes. There is no question that the site-finished route opens up a greater variety of choices with respect to color and shade. Prefinished products, however, come in more species and stains than ever before.
  • No bevels. Prefinished floorboards usually have micro-bevels on all edges. These bevels hide slight discrepancies between board depths and widths. Inevitably, some homeowners will prefer the flush look of site-sanded floors, as they feature no such grooves and can be finished to a mirror-like surface.
