Prefinished vs. Unfinished Wood Flooring!

CA Prefinished Solid Flooring | California Wood Floor Boards

When you are remodeling your home or building a home, deciding on the type of flooring you will use can be a stressful decision. Wood flooring is one of the most popular options for flooring. It looks great, doesn’t stain easily like carpet, and there are many types of wood and finishes to choose from. Once you’ve decided you want wood flooring, the next decision is between prefinished and unfinished wood.

Prefinished wood has a lower installation cost than unfinished wood, because it takes less time to install it. With prefinished wood, you can have it installed and move your furniture back in on the very same day. Because of the finishes required for unfinished wood, you must wait to put furniture back on it, depending on the type of finish and the number of coats required.

While prefinished wood has a lower installation cost, the actual cost of the wood is higher than for unfinished wood. This is because the finish is already on it. This also allows your home to stay free from the fumes that occur when you coat and finish unfinished wood in your home.

There are many choices for prefinished, but unfinished wood has seemingly unlimited choices. If there is a specific plank width or a unique wood species you are looking for, you are more likely find that available with unfinished wood, which makes it good for historical homes and homes with a specific architectural style. Unfinished wood is also a good choice if you are trying to match other wood in your home. Because you finish it after it is installed, it is easier to match the wood and create a uniform look in your home. The durable finish on prefinished wood is also something to take into consideration. If you are adding wood in a basement or in an area of high humidity, prefinished wood might be a good choice.
