Prefinished Hardwood Flooring
Prefinished hardwood flooring eliminates the time consuming chore of the sanding and refinishing and gives you the added benefit of a perfect finish all done for you at the factory. Most of the wood flooring we carry has variety of stain colors to choose from and are coated with the durable 7- 10 coats of the " Alumide or Ceramic" finish, which is far more durable for wear than anything that can be purchased in a hardware store or home center. Using prefinished Hardwood flooring allows you to move right back in as soon as a room is installed No Waiting for the finish to dry!

Job Finished Hardwood Flooring
Installing unfinished Hardwood flooring requires a series of steps including sanding, staining and sealing the floor. Applying the finish to the floors after the sanding would requires several days waiting for finish coats to dry before being able to move back in.

Unfinished hardwood flooring is delivered raw then sanded, stained and finished on site. It is available in more widths and wood species than prefinished flooring and can be matched to existing wood floors.

A custom sanded hardwood floor is perfectly flat looking, with a tabletop appearance that cannot be achieved with a prefinished hardwood floor. If the subfloor is uneven, then a pre-finished floor will be uneven. Since unfinished flooring is sanded flat on site, it is more forgiving of slight irregularities in the subfloor.

Engineered Wood Flooring
Laminate is melamine-infused paper on top, wood chip composite on bottom. Solid hardwood, by definition, is real wood. And engineered wood, too, is real wood. It is a sandwich of 1/16" to 1/8" inch of finish wood on top and non-finish plywood underneath. The top finish layer is pre-finished, which means that it is already sanded and sealed. So as soon as the floor has been laid, you can walk on it.

Unlike solid wood, which must be nailed to a wood sub-floor, engineered wood can be installed in a different number of ways. Depending on the type you buy, it can be either:

  • A nail-down floor - This is for the 3/8" thick floor--its thinness requires nailing to enhance stability;
  • A glue-down floor - The 1/2" thick floor can be nailed down; or
  • A floating floor - The 5/8" planks are thick enough to act as a floating floor.
