Solid Prefinished hardwood flooring

Rustic Floor Supply offers solid prefinished hardwood flooring at our Boise, Idaho location. Solid prefinished hardwood flooring is a type of wood flooring that comes with a pre-applied finish. This means that the flooring has already been sanded and treated with stains or other finishes before it is sold to the consumer. One advantage of solid prefinished hardwood flooring is that it eliminates the need for sanding and finishing on site, which can produce a lot of dust and disruption in the home. This makes it an attractive choice for those who want a beautiful wood floor without the hassle of a lengthy installation process.

If you’re on a tight schedule for your renovation project and want a hassle-free flooring solution, consider using prefinished hardwood. Prefinished hardwood comes in two types: solid and engineered. While engineered prefinished hardwood contains various materials such as glues and wood substrates, solid prefinished hardwood is made purely of wood and finishing materials. This makes solid prefinished hardwood a more durable and long-lasting option.

If you choose solid prefinished hardwood for your flooring, you’ll have a wide range of options to choose from. Solid prefinished hardwood is available in a variety of sheens, colors, species, and plank widths, so you can find the perfect match for your space. No matter what your style or needs are, you’re sure to find a solid prefinished hardwood option that will suit your preferences.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Species

Our solid prefinished hardwood flooring line includes four species: hickory, maple, red oak, and white oak. Here is more information about each species:

Hickory: Hickory is a domestic species known for its exceptional hardness. It is affordable and resistant to dents and scratches, making it a great choice for homes with pets and children. It has a high Janka rating, which means it is highly resistant to scratches, and it continues to look great for years. However, hickory is susceptible to movement, so it is recommended to use planks that are four inches or narrower to prevent excessive movement. If your floor does crack, increasing humidity is a good solution.

Maple: Maple is a hard, stable flooring option that is resistant to movement. It is not as hard as hickory, but it is close. It is important to maintain consistent humidity levels in homes with maple flooring to prevent movement. Maple has both tight and soft grains, which can affect how stain adheres to the wood.

Red Oak: Red oak is a popular and economical wood species. It is lower in price than some other options, but it still looks great and wears well. It has good stability and is not as affected by changes in humidity as other species. However, it does dent and ding more easily due to its lower Janka rating. Red oak is known for its ability to take stain consistently.

White Oak: White oak is a popular and widely used flooring species. It takes stain consistently, giving the floor a uniform look. It is known for its beauty when stained and has similar durability to red oak. It is resistant to movement and can handle wide planks up to five inches.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Grades

We highly recommend using the plus grade for your solid prefinished hardwood flooring. While it may come at a higher cost, the quality is worth the extra money. The plus grade offers longer lengths, more uniformity, and a better overall installation experience. In fact, we typically sell 70% of our prefinished hardwood flooring in plus grade. Please keep in mind that these are special grades that are not recognized by the NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association).

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Floor Sheens

Hardwood flooring sheen refers to the amount of shine or gloss on the surface of the floor. The higher the shine, the more gloss the floor has. On the other hand, a low shine means that the finish has more matte in it. Sheen levels are typically measured at a 60-degree angle using specialized equipment. In general, we recommend choosing a matte or satin sheen for your hardwood flooring, as these finishes tend to hide scratches, dirt, and other small imperfections better than high gloss finishes.

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.
