Prefinished solid hardwood only needs to be nailed to a wood subfloor. All finishing treatments are applied in the factory. Factories use more robust finishes than on-site installers. Therefore, prefinished hardwood usually has an extended finish warranty than unfinished hardwood. A wood floor that is constructed with prefinished boards has a beveled look. Both types of solid wood flooring and engineered wood can be refinished when it becomes worn.
Engineered wood flooring is also finished in the factory. The flooring has a plywood base and a surface layer of hardwood. The plywood is placed in different directions, and because of this makeup, the flooring can resist moisture. Engineered wood is installed as a floating floor that needs no attachment to the subfloor. This man-made flooring is ideal for bathrooms, basements, and other spaces where moisture can be expected.
