Another available choice is unfinished or prefinished wood. Prefinished wood makes the installation a bit quicker and is less messy. However, by choosing unfinished hardwood, there are many more options that aren’t available straight from the manufacturer. There will be more choices in stain colors, more available layers of stain or protective coating, and other options as well.
Finally, it’s important to reiterate the importance of having hardwood floors professionally installed. Due to the specifications that come with this particular flooring type, many problems can occur that are best left to professionals.
