MakingYour Choice Easier

  • Prefinished or Site-Finished?
    • Site-finished floors can be stained to your choice of color.
    • Custom Features can easily be added to site-finished floors. Borders, wraps, feature strips, and inlays can give your hardwood floors a unique look [feel, flare].
    • Site-finished hardwood floors are completely smooth, unlike prefinished hardwood floors, which contain a micro bevel on each plank. These rounded edges can often trap dirt and dust, making your floors more difficult to clean.
    • However, prefinished floor installations can be completed in about ½ the amount of time, usually only 1-2 days for completion.
  • Which wood species?

    The options are limitless with site-finished hardwood floors.  Choose from among domestic woods like red and white oak, maple and hickory, as well as some exotic species like Ipe, Brazilian Cherry, Tigerwood, or Peruvian Walnut. A clear maple hardwood tends to look good in ____, while a rustic reclaimed pine would be an excellent choice for that “cabin in the woods” feel.

  • What type of finish?
    • Water based finishes are becoming increasingly popular because they contain fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and are non-flammable.  However, water-based finishes often require more coats to achieve the same film thickness, and can be difficult to apply over oil-based stains.
    • Polyurethane works well over stains and is easy to apply.  However, it contains more volatile compounds than a water-based finish.
    • A Swedish finish is considered the most beautiful and durable finish of all, with excellent transparency and elasticity.  However, it is a combustible finish and can only be applied by professionals.
  • Solid or Engineered Installation?
    • Nothing adds beauty and character to your home like a natural hardwood floor.
    • Solid hardwood floors can be refinished up to seven times.
    • Engineered hardwood floors are an excellent choice for floors “below grade,” that is, below ground level.  Engineered hardwood floors have the ability to flex slightly, making them a good choice where humidity levels are constantly changing.
