Hardwood Flooring

Prefinished hardwood flooring is the type of wood floors that is already coated with the finish during the manufacturing process. They are up to ten times thinly coated with acrylic base, solvent base or water base finish. This type doesn’t require sanding or coating after installation. Its availability of sizes is planks, strips and parquets.

Why choose prefinished?

. You can enjoy the great advantages of prefinished hardwood because you don’t have to put up with all the dust that is emitted from the sanding machine if you prefer the unfinished.

. There will be no problem of uneven coats being applied to your floor hence the wood was already coated up to ten times of finish during the manufacturing process.

The challenge of installing prefinished wood

. Due to the reason that it can’t be sanded after being installed, the contractor must make the sub-floor level because it will affect the flooring’s level after installation. If the sub-floor is wavy, so does the floor.

. Long gone is the wax and polish method of making your hardwood floor shine and smooth. What is new is the prefinished wood which you don’t have to apply wax and then polish for a luster and glowing floor.

. The installer must be extra careful with their tools because if dents are made, it is impossible to repair the dent by sanding the single wood floor with the dents in it, knowing that sanding prefinished hardwood flooring is a great exertion of effort. Because of its finish that is thick and hard to sand, and you can’t duplicate the finish the manufacturer has made for the woods.

How to finish

. After a thin coat is applied to the wood, it is thoroughly dried by the use of ultraviolet lights and then the next coat is added repeating the same process until the coating is completed.

. To make the wood more durable, aluminum oxide is added to the urethane. Aluminum oxide is known to provide resistance to abrasion. Also, prefinished wood floors are injected with acrylic to its fiber to make it stronger and sealed with a wear layer.

Disadvantages of prefinished hardwood flooring

. To build allowances for wood irregularity in the sub-floor or the flooring, prefinished wood floor is more often than not are made with beveled edge. But even if beveled edges are typically less obvious, they can be an obstruction during mopping or sweeping them.

. The availability of different colors of the finish is still limited. Although manufacturers try to introduce new colors and try to match them to your existing floors, may be difficult to meet.

. Easy and difficult installation. The easy part is that you don’t have to sand or finish, but heavy tools that are dropped during installation, will make dents and can ruin your floor. Hand sanding would be done if you prefer but if not, just replace it with a new one.
