Site Finished Flooring

 

A site finished floor is new hardwood that is installed unfinished and then sanded and finished to your specification, onsite in your home. Site finished floors are typically solid however, we do offer site finished engineered floors as well. This type of flooring is widely sought after and allows you to choose your stain color and type of finish. Site finished floors also allow for custom installations such as borders, inlays and accent work. We often recommend this type of flooring when tying new flooring into existing wood.

Prefinished Flooring

 

A prefinished hardwood floor comes from the manufacturer already stained, factory finished and ready for installation. This type of flooring usually provides a quicker and sometimes cleaner installation process than 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. If you are interested in a prefinished floor, we recommend you stop by our Showroom and check out our extensive collection of prefinished flooring options. We have a large range of prefinished hardwood in different species, widths, colors and textures and pride ourselves on only selling quality flooring products. We also carry collections of bamboo and luxury vinyl to fit any room or style.

Engineered Flooring

An engineered floor is a solid veneer of real hardwood which has been adhered to plywood or multiple layers of different types of wood. These types of floors are made with traditional tongue and groove systems, similar to solid wood floors. Engineered floors can either come prefinished or unfinished. They can also vary in overall thickness, as well as thickness of the “wear layer” (the solid veneer of real wood) which can affect if the floors can be refinished in the future. These floors can typically be nailed, floated or glued during the installation process. Engineered floors typically do not respond to humidity and moisture the same way solid floors do. This allows them to be used in applications where solid wood would normally be unsuitable such as humid environments, basements, over concrete slabs or over radiant heat. Another popular application of engineered floors is extra wide plank flooring. If you are looking for board widths larger then 5″ we will typically recommend and engineered floor due to increased dimensional stability.
