You can also get factory finished
wood flooring. This option is finished by the manufacturer and has become as widely available as unfinished wood flooring. These floors require less time to install because the sanding and finishing process has already happened and are ready to walk on the moment they are installed.
Solid and Engineered Wood Flooring
is exactly as the name suggests, a solid piece of wood top to bottom. The thickness varies but generally ranges from ¾” to 5/16″. One great benefit of solid wood is that it can be refinished and sanded many times.
flooring is a thin layer of wood on top of a other types of wood with other layers added into it as well. The grain of each layer runs in different directions, which makes it very stable and keeps it from contracting/expanding. The top layer of engineered wood flooring consists of high-quality wood. Engineered wood can be sanded and refinished but not nearly as many times as solid wood.
