Solid Prefinished hardwood flooring

Rustic Floor Supply offers solid prefinished hardwood flooring at our Atlanta, Georgia location. Solid prefinished hardwood flooring is a type of wood flooring that comes with a pre-applied finish, meaning it has been sanded and treated with stains or other finishes before it is sold (different than engineered hardwood flooring). This eliminates the need for on-site sanding with sandpaper, and finishing (stain and finish), reducing dust and disruption during installation. It’s a convenient choice for those seeking a beautiful wood floor without the hassles of a lengthy installation process.

Prefinished hardwood comes in two main types: solid and engineered. Solid prefinished hardwood consists solely of wood and finishing materials, making it a durable and long-lasting option. With solid prefinished hardwood, you have a wide range of choices, including sheens, colors, wood species, and plank widths, ensuring you can find the perfect fit for your space, regardless of your style or requirements.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Species

In Atlanta, Georgia, our line of solid prefinished hardwood flooring features four wood species, each with its unique characteristics and benefits:

Hickory: Hickory is a domestically grown hardwood species known for its exceptional hardness. It offers remarkable durability and resistance to dents and scratches, making it a great choice for homes with pets and children. Hickory boasts a high Janka rating, ensuring it remains in great condition for years. To prevent excessive movement, it is advisable to use planks that are four inches or narrower, and increasing humidity can be a solution if cracks occur.

Maple: Maple is a hard and stable flooring option that is less susceptible to movement. While not as hard as hickory, it is still quite resilient. Maintaining consistent humidity levels is crucial in homes with maple flooring to prevent excessive movement. Maple exhibits a combination of tight and soft grains, which can affect how stains adhere to the wood.

Red Oak: Red oak is a well-known and cost-effective wood species. It offers an attractive appearance and durability, with good stability that is less affected by changes in humidity compared to other woods. However, it is more prone to dents and dings due to its lower Janka rating. Red oak is appreciated for its consistent ability to take stains.

White Oak: White oak is another highly regarded and commonly used hardwood species for flooring. It takes stain consistently, delivering a uniform and attractive appearance. White oak’s beauty shines when stained, and it possesses similar durability to red oak. It resists movement and can accommodate wider planks, including those up to five inches in width.

No matter which wood species you choose, you’ll find a suitable and beautiful flooring solution at Rustic Wood Floor Supply.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Grades

Choosing the plus grade for your solid prefinished hardwood flooring is a wise investment. Despite the additional cost, the quality and benefits it offers make it a worthwhile choice. The plus grade provides longer board lengths, greater uniformity, and an overall superior installation experience. At Rustic Wood Floor Supply, around 70% of our prefinished hardwood flooring is sold in the plus grade. It’s important to note that these special grades, although not officially recognized by the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), significantly enhance the look and performance of your flooring.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Floor Sheens

When selecting a sheen for your hardwood flooring, it’s important to understand that sheen refers to the level of shine or gloss present on the surface of the floor. Higher sheen levels result in more gloss, while lower sheen levels produce a more matte appearance. Typically, sheen levels are measured at a 60-degree angle using specialized equipment.

For most hardwood flooring applications, we recommend choosing a matte or satin sheen. These finishes offer a more subdued appearance and have the advantage of concealing minor imperfections, such as scratches and dirt, more effectively than high-gloss finishes. This makes matte or satin sheens a practical choice for maintaining the long-term beauty of your hardwood floors.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring FAQ’s

Do solid prefinished flooring floor shave popping and noises like enigneered flooring does?2022-12-18T05:27:57+00:00

No, since the floor is 3/4″ thick the fasteners such as cleats or staples seat better and typically do not go through the flooring and let the floor move to create a noise.

Do you need to glue solid prefinished wood flooring?2022-12-18T05:25:31+00:00

We recommend gluing 4″ and higher for wood flooring. When we recommend gluing we recommend glue assist which uses adhesive sausage in a “S” pattern.

Is solid prefinished hardwood flooring better?2022-12-18T05:23:51+00:00

No, it is the same as unfinished hardwood. It is better than engineered hardwood as the wear layer is thicker and this naturally means the floor will last longer. However, if you are not a professional installing prefinished flooring, prefinished flooring is better than unfinished as unfinished requires very niche tools to make the jobs perfect and not sub-par.

What is prefinished solid hardwood flooring?2022-12-18T05:22:12+00:00

Solid prefinished flooring is just that solid hardwood flooring that is prefinished at the factory. Virtually the only downside to this method is that the boards usually have a slight bevel on the edges so that there are no issues while installing the boards.
