Unfinished and Prefinished Hardwoods

The difference between unfinished and pre-finished wood and how to tell the difference to determine what you currently have in your home. 

Unfinished hardwood flooring is made of raw wood without beveled edges. We’ll sand and finish each piece of flooring on-site. A flooring contractor will need more time to install unfinished hardwood flooring, and it is often more expensive. When you see the finished product, you’ll notice its smooth, uninterrupted appearance. This is a beautiful option for clients who are seeking a custom look.

Pre-finished hardwood flooring is made of pieces that were finished in a factory. Pre-finished hardwood is more affordable than unfinished wood but doesn’t create that uninterrupted surface. The finishing process causes the edges of the boards to slope slightly, which means that you’ll see small grooves between boards where their beveled edges meet.

We will help you determine which type you currently have before we begin your refinishing project!

Both types of flooring can be great options for homeowners. To learn more about unfinished and pre-finished hardwood, call 404-510-3822 today. A dedicated flooring contractor will gladly answer your questions and share information on hardwood flooring services.
