Searching for ready-to-install floors? Look no further than pre-finished hardwood
You can purchase pre-finished hardwood floors and install them in your home within a few days. There are plenty of options for the wood to be customized during the manufacturing process. It comes in handy for those new to the flooring industry. Some people want to avoid the extra work that comes with sanding and picking a finish.
Put simply, pre-finished hardwood is precisely what the name says it is. The boards are finished in the factory they come from. Each one is coated with a layer of polyurethane and baked in an oven with aluminum oxide. This results in an acrylic finish, which strengthens the boards. When you’re looking for quick new floors, go with prefinished hardwood. If you choose this amazing option, you’ll get the following benefits:
Work sites quickly become a mess. Luckily, this isn’t the case with pre-finished hardwood. Dust isn’t left behind because the floors are pre-finished. It also means you don’t have to wait to walk on the floor. No one likes cleaning! You still have to maintain these floors, but they’re not hard to clean. Sweep your floors with a soft-bristled broom and mop them with a small amount of clean water.
When you sand and add a finish to a floor, there’s bound to be a smell. However, you don’t have to worry about odd odors with pre-finished floors of hardwood. Because the floors are finished during the manufacturing process, your space won’t have a strange scent. Any home improvement store will have a vast selection of pre-finished hardwood floors. You won’t be searching all over for a rare wood. At Champion Floor Company in St. Louis, there are always several choices.
It’s not difficult to install pre-finished hardwood floors with the help of an expert. Call a contractor from St. Louis Flooring Company to prevent errors. Let’s talk about the installation process.
Your contractor will begin by face nailing the first row of boards to line up with their layout mark. It acts as a reference point.
Next, it’s time to blind nail the following row through the tongues with a finish nailer. The process is repeated until there are enough rows to use a flooring nailer.
Once there isn’t room to use the flooring nailer, it’s time to repeat the previous step with a finish nailer from the other side of the room.
Surface nailing is minimal with prefinished hardwood floors. However, any nail holes left behind are covered with wood putty. It gives the floor a cleaner and more refined look.
