  • Prefinished installations can be walked on immediately
  • Handle climate changes well
  • Durable finish, covered under manufacturer warranty
  • Cannot customize or change finish on-site
  • Can eventually be refinished many years later
  • Quickly repair individual boards, without the hassle of sanding the entire room over
  • Many Prefinished products offer a UV coating in finish to reduce fading in direct sunlight
  • Available in many widths and species options
  • Easily match stain to existing trim or floors in your home, or customize the finish on site
  • Possible to weave or "tooth" a new unfinished floor into an existing floor when walls or cabinets are removed
  • Repairing boards requires sanding and refinishing entire room
  • NO Micro-Bevel between boards associated with prefinished flooring
  • Longer process from start to finish due to time needed for finish to dry
