Solid Prefinished Hardwood Flooring Species

We offer four species of solid prefinished hardwood flooring for our solid prefinished hardwood flooring line. The species we offer include hickory, maple, red oak, and white oak.

Prefinished Solid Hickory: Hickory is an exceptionally hard domestic species. Hickory is affordable while still being resistant to dents and scratches. Prefinished solid hickory hardwood flooring works great in homes with pets and children. The Janka rating of hickory is very high, which results in great scratch resistance. Hickory continues to look great for years because of its scratch-resistant nature. Hickory is susceptible to movement, and many manufacturers recommend limiting plank width to four inches or narrower to ensure the floor does not move excessively. If your floor does crack, adding humidity is an ideal solution.

Prefinished Solid Maple: Maple is a great flooring option because of its hardness levels and resistance to movement. Maple is not as hard as hickory flooring, but it is close. Humidity levels should be kept consistent in homes with maple flooring to limit movement, a whole-house humidifier is a great option. Stain colors look different on maple than on other woods because of the grain styles in maple flooring. Maple features both tight and soft grains, so stain adheres differently in the different grain styles.

Prefinished Red Oak: Red Oak is often considered one of the most economical wood species. Red oak is lower in price than other materials but still looks great and wears well. The stability in prefinished red oak is better than other species, and slight changes in humidity often go unnoticed. Red oak does dent and ding more easily than other woods because of its lower Janka rating. Red oak is a great option for solid prefinished hardwood flooring because of its ability to stain consistently.

Prefinished White Oak: White oak is the most popular flooring species on the market. White oak takes stain consistently and gives the flooring a uniform look. No floor stains as beautifully as white oak. White oak has similar durability to red oak flooring. While all woods are susceptible to movement, white oak does well with seasonal changes and can easily go up to five-inch wide planks.

Solid Prefinished Hardwood Floor Sheens

Hardwood flooring sheens are the amount of shine the floor has while looking at it. The higher the shine the more gloss it has. The least amount of shine means that the finish has more matte in it. Typically sheens of finish are measured at 60 degrees and there is an actual machine to test sheen levels. We usually recommend that you should select matte or satin sheen as it hides scratches, dirt, and other small issues you might encounter with flooring.

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.
