TYPES OF HARDWOOD
When you're looking into installing a hardwood floor, you have a couple of options to choose from when it comes to the finish of the wood.
Prefinished hardwood flooring is already sanded and sealed when it comes from the factory. This makes for a quick installation process with no staining or varnishing. Also, the floor will be ready to walk on as soon as it’s put down. It’s usually a bit cheaper than unfinished when you compare the two.
Unfinished requires multiple coats of protective varnish that have to dry over a period of time. However, it’s the best option if you’re trying to match a specific color in another area of the commercial or residential space. You have more options for customizing your solid hardwood floors if you choose to go the unfinished route.

There are several installation methods for installing hardwood flooring. Some of the most common ones include floating flooring and gluing down. Floating flooring is the fastest and easiest way to install hardwood floors. They can be installed over any type of flooring. The planks are held together either by their shape or some adhesive. The second installation method involves the new wood flooring being glued directly to the subfloor with a strong adhesive. This installation method is better for high traffic areas as the result is a more stable flooring.
