Both prefinished and site-finished flooring add value to your home. Below, we take a closer look at prefinished flooring and the many benefits they provide their owners.
Ease of Installation and Maintenance
Installing prefinished hardwood flooring is fast and simple. Already surfaced and coated in a factory setting, it doesn’t have to be sanded and finished in your home or office, which is handy if your project is on a tight schedule. As a result, installation costs are also cheaper.
Prefinished flooring has many coatings and strengtheners put on it using a UV-curing technology that falls within firmly controlled factory settings. This makes the floors long-lasting, especially since oftentimes, the finishing comes under manufacturer’s warranty. Factory-applied surface finishes also tend to be free of swirl marks, brush hair, etc., and these uniformly applied durable finishes don’t carry an odor. In addition, prefinished wood floors are a lot easier to look after when they do require upkeep. Routine cleanup is just a matter of mopping or sweeping once a week.
Elimination of Toxicity
Prefinished wood flooring is a hypoallergenic flooring option. Installation of this kind usually means less noise and mess, as well as zero toxins and nasty smells that are inevitable when conventional floors are installed. This can be a key advantage for heavily trafficked areas or families with children, pets or people with asthma and other allergies.
Prefinished flooring is very scratch-resistant and durable. As a result of highly accurate manufacturing techniques, combined with computer-operated application of urethane surface finishes, this kind of flooring is up to 10 times more scratch- and abrasion-resistant than unfinished wood flooring.
Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of colors, designs and types of wood. It doesn’t matter how diverse or particular your preferences are, there’s always an option available for your home or office with prefinished hardwood floors.
Punch of Style
The look of hardwood floors adds character to your home or office space, while making it appear spacious and lighter. Hardwood floors bring the beauty, warmth and value of real wood to your home or office, and they never go out of fashion and style.
A DIY flooring project could take several weeks or months, but a professional wood flooring company can do everything from preparing the underlay to polishing off the floor and clearing up the mess in half the time. They have all the professional tools and knowledge of the best techniques to use. They can also help you pick out the right type of wood for your space.
