Wood Flooring Types

Solid wood flooring can be supplied either unfinished or pre finished. The pieces are one wood type only and not laminated together. These types of floors are generally fastened with a pneumatic stapler. 

Engineered flooring consists of two parts. The first part is a plywood base and the second part is a finish layer of actual hardwood that is laminated together. Engineered floors are generally used for glue down or floating scenarios where there is nothing to nail to, like a concrete slab for instance or sometimes over radiant heat floors. Engineered wood floors are available in pre finished and un finished varieties .

Pre finished Flooring

Pre finished flooring come from the supplier completely finished and is ready to use right after installation is complete. Some customers prefer pre finished flooring because it can be completed faster than using unfinished wood and site sanding and finishing it. Once a pre finished floor is installed, it is immediately ready for use. Possible down sides are that pre finished flooring requires micro bevels to be machined into the boards to prevent being able to feel board edges under your feet, and you might be limited to less colors than a site sanded and finished floor.
