Prefinished Hardwood

Prefinished hardwood floors are a great choice if you’re looking for a colored floor like brown or black (as opposed to a natural look). They can be installed more quickly, and they’re a more economical choice, too. This can make them a great choice for businesses that need a quick turnaround time.We have lots of prefinished hardwood samples you can see in our showroom, come see us!

Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Sales and Installation

Choosing the right prefinished floors

Choosing between prefinished or unfinished hardwood flooring for your home? Prefinished flooring has the fastest hardwood installation time. We’ve installed prefinished flooring all over Rhode Island and Massachusetts and our customers have been very pleased with their prefinished hardwood floors.

Prefinished Flooring Choices

One thing to consider is that there are fewer options for prefinished flooring. It’s already finished, so you can’t customize it. It’s a great choice to get the wood flooring look and durability on a smaller budget and faster timeline. Still have questions? We can give you expert recommendations.

Prefinished vs. Unfinished Hardwood

Unfinished flooring is hardwood that has been cut to be installed but has not been stained with a finish. Prefinished hardwood is flooring that has been manufactured, stained, and dried in a factory setting.

Does Prefinished Wood Look Better Than Unfinished Hardwood?

This is one of the first questions we’re asked by customers from all over MA and RI. Here’s the answer we like to give:

The wood itself does not look all that different. However, unfinished hardwood can be tailored to fit the room a bit better than prefinished wood due to the sanding process. This allows for a more even surface. You also can’t do any borders or unconventional, decorative methods with prefinished factory flooring. The hardwood must be installed as is. Ace’s Wood flooring contractors stationed throughout Southern New England have the skills it takes to make your prefinished hardwood floors look exactly how you wish them to.

Benefits of Prefinished Hardwood Flooring

Prefinished hardwood flooring is quicker and easier to install, without the need for a drying period. The factory finish also makes it more durable.

Prefinished flooring doesn’t need a drying period, which makes it a popular choice for commercial businesses. It prevents the need to close the doors to allow for the longer process of finishing on site.

Prefinished wood also prevents any allergies or sensitivities that may be aggravated by the sanding and refinishing process. It’s also very durable.

Pros and Cons of Prefinished Hardwood Flooring
Pros
  • Quicker Installation. Prefinished hardwood has been finished before installation, which means the hardwood flooring installation experts will not need to sand or finish the planks themselves.
  • Extremely Durable. A powerful chemical sealant is applied to prefinished flooring in the factory which is unavailable for on site use. Generally the layer of finish is also thicker, so it’s less likely to suffer from nicks or scratches.
  • Easy maintenance. The surface seal is stronger so stains, scratches, dents, and other damage are less likely to damage prefinished flooring. The treatment also lasts longer because of the thick finish coat, which gives you more time before your floors need to be resanded and refinished.
  • Great for people with allergies or dust senstitivies.  If you have an allergy or sensitivity to the chemicals involved with refinishing or the dust that comes with sanding, prefinished flooring is a great option.
Cons
  • Seams. The hardwood planks were finished in a factory which means the seal will not be applied after the planks are installed. The seal, while covering the wood itself, will not cover the small spaces between the planks. This can make your floors more susceptible to water penetration, rot, or mold, and increase the amount of dirt and grime caught between the seams.
  • Height. There is no on-site sanding process. The height of the boards can’t be customized so any sub-floor height irregularities can’t be corrected.
  • Refinishing. Eventually even prefinished floors will have to be refinished. The thick layer of finish that has been protecting your prefinished floors likely means that extra sanding will be needed. That can reduce the thickness of the wood floor and the number of times that you can refinish your floors without them getting too thin.
  • Repairs. Repairs are more difficult due to the thicker layer of finish. Damage can’t be fixed by just smoothing out that one prefinished wood board. Typically either the entire floor must be sanded and refinished or the damaged area must be removed and replaced.

“We are extremely satisfied…not only did their crew do a fantastic job with the initial installation….it is a rare find today to find a company that has a desire to do quality work at a fair price. It is even rarer to find an owner that has been able to transfer this sense of pride in quality workmanship to their crew…quality work!”

I went into Ace Wood Flooring’s showroom to get some ideas for the addition we built. Troy, the owner, let us take some samples home to see what would look best in our home. A few days later we called Troy to come out to our house and he gave us a price on the spot. Our floors look fantastic thanks to Ace Wood Flooring!
