Wood Floors: What’s the Difference?

Site-finished floors are wood floors that are sanded and finished after installed in a home. These floors are left up to the homeowner’s imagination with an extensive pallet of stain colors and finishes to choose from. The sanding process can help eliminate any imperfections throughout the floor, giving you a cleaner, more uniform look.

Today’s advances in technology can allow for a quick, clean and healthy finishing process. Having your floors sanded on site does mean having to stay off your floors for the duration of the sanding and finishing process. In the past this was a long and messy process with extensive clean up. With today’s advances in technology, there are dust containment vacuums and low VOC finishes that allow for a quick, clean and healthy process.

Pre-finished floors have the finish applied in a factory using a UV curing process. They come in a wide variety of species, colors, thicknesses, widths and character grades but can be limited on the ability to be sanded due to the thinner wear layers. Once installed, pre-finished flooring is ready to be used and there is no sanding, dust or fumes from the finishing process.
