Dec 5, 2007
Installing hardwood floor can be a tough task that you may take when you apply it to your home; most especially when you do it all by your self ( without the help of professional installer. Hardwood floor installation does not only take skills but you also need patience in installing hardwood floor. Fortunately, to lessen your labor in installation, you can go for prefinished hardwood floor materials that are available in hardware stores.

When we talk about prefinished, this pertains to hardwood planks that are already coated and sealed with translucent films which functions as their protection from wear. Finishing pertains to giving protection to your hardwood floor from scratches and spills and to make it easy to wipe or mop.

You can benefit a lot from using prefinished hardwood planks when you intent to do your hardwood floor installation all by yourself. You can, after drilling, finish the nailing process and this is one thing that is advantageous for you.

However, if you will utilize maple or oak, this hardwood floor materials need to be applied with finishing or final touch by sanding and by putting wax for polishing purposes. The range of time that you can have in installing hardwood materials is halved when using prefinished wood.

Prefinished floors have also better output than using the others. It is because they are already designed to be uniform and predetermined coating. This gives you assurance that you can have the better quality of output. Usually, pre-finished hardwood are sanded and coated three times, eight times to be coated with aluminum oxide. They are also been tested and proven to handle normal wear situations.

Remember however, prefinished floorings are a little bit expensive than pure hardwood planks. But, when you do your calculations to compare them, you will determine that you are spending more with the latter plus the hassle you will undergo when you choose it.

Well, there is no argument that you can always ask for assistance from others, especially from the professional, to install your prefinished hardwood floor. However, if the issue is the cost, then you are fortunate to somebody that has given his idea to product in which you can essentially choose as an effective alternative for pure hardwood planks.

So, I hope you are given some essential ideas which you can use if you plan to install some for your home. You can use the pre-finished ones.
