A site finished floor is typically a solid, unfinished product that is installed, then sanded and finished in your home to specification. This type of flooring is widely sought after, and allows for numerous color and finish options, as well as allowing for custom installations, such as borders, inlay, and accent work. Discover Hardwood Flooring and Design specializes in custom site finished floors.
A prefinished floor comes factory finished from the manufacture, already pre-stained and finished, ready for installation. This type of flooring has become a popular choice over the last 15 years and usually provides a quicker and cleaner installation process then a site finished floor. All prefinished floors come with a micro-bevel, which is a slight, 2 or 4 sided bevel around the edges of the board.
An engineered floor is a solid veneer of real wood which has been adhered to plywood or multiple layers of composite woods. These types of flooring are made with interlocking tongue and groove systems, similar to site finished and prefinished floors. Engineered floors can either come prefinished or unfinished depending on the manufacturer and the overall thickness of the “wear layer” or solid veneer of real wood. These floors can be nailed, floated, or glued during the installation process. Engineered floors typically do not respond to moisture the same way solid floors do, allowing them to be used in applications where solids would normally be unsuitable, such as humid environments, basements, over concrete slabs, or installed over radiant heat.
