Hardwood Floor Installation: Benefits of Pre-Finished Flooring

May 23, 2018

As you embark on a new hardwood floor installation project, a great option is to purchase pre-finished flooring. Finishing a hardwood helps to protect the flooring from damage and helps them to last for decades. Pre-finished flooring doesn’t involve the mess and smell of sanding and finishing within the living environment, making it the more convenient option.
  1. Faster Installation: If you are looking for a fast floor installation, pre-finished flooring will expedite the process. Why? Pre-finished flooring is manufactured with the finish built-into the wood and ready to be placed in your home! Depending on the size and space, it can reduce the time by a few days. Your hardwood floor installer can show you a variety of pre-finished floor options to choose from. While the options remain more limited than those of unfinished floors, you will be able to see before installation what the floor will look like in your home. It also does not require the same amount of skill level for installers to complete and can expedite the process to keep your remodel project on schedule and/or done quickly. Also, many of the obstacles that may be encountered with unfinished floors are already completed with pre-finished floors, which will save time on your project.
  2. Ideal for Remodels: If you are working with a complete home remodel project, pre-finished floors are a great way to go. They can easily be installed around existing furniture, appliances, cabinetry, etc. Plus, a remodel involves high traffic and relocation of various elements of the home. It can also be placed easily on sub-flooring and will remain consistent from room to room. Installing a pre-finished floor is a cleaner process and less time consuming than an unfinished flooring job.
  3. Cost Effective: Many choose a pre-finished hardwood flooring for their home project due to budget requirements. Pre-finished flooring typically costs less than unfinished flooring. Many floor installation companies can work with your budget to help you find the best solution for your project. While there are many advantages to unfinished flooring too, pre-finished flooring is not as labor intensive as unfinished—especially depending on plank size.
