Advantages of Site-Finished
The installation, sanding and finishing of unfinished hardwood flooring is an art form. Craftsmen can turn your hardwood floors into something extra special you will want to show off to guests. This post highlights reasons you might want to invest in custom site-finished hardwood floors.
Consistency. While unfinished wood flooring naturally will have slight over- and under-wood when installed (the uneven edges and ends from board to board), quality sanding work will flatten and smooth those variations. Prefinished, or factory-finished, hardwood flooring removes them by beveling the edges and ends.
Those bevels create grooves in your prefinished floor. Site-finished hardwood floors have a flatter, more consistent surface without a bevel – unless you customize them.
Site-finished wood flooring also enables the most consistent finish for cleanliness and protecting against moisture from the top side of the floor. Where prefinished wood floor boards are individually coated, the beveled grooves can collect dirt and debris, and there inherently is space between boards that is not sealed. With site-finished floors, the finish is rolled across the boards. That seals those hairline spaces with uniform protection that covers the whole floor.
Creativity. Customization can be maximized with unfinished hardwood flooring. The limits only are imagination, the skills of the contractor you hire, and, of course, budget.
Customizations are made with unfinished hardwood, so they require sanding and finishing on site. That rules them out for prefinished flooring projects. With site-finished hardwood floors, you can add inlays of wood, metal and stone. Add special borders and ornate medallions. The options for colors are infinite.
Choices. You can choose colors that fit your overall interior design. Do you have wall paint, rug, artwork or furniture upholstery samples you would like the flooring to complement? A craftsman can mix and match as needed to produce a hardwood floor stain color that is unique to your home.
You also have a choice of wood floor finishes and sheens with site-finished hardwood flooring. These options can be tailored to your needs and overall desired appearance, such as a natural finish that enhances the look of the wood’s grain and character.
