Prefinished means the planks come with stain and sealant already applied. When a floor is prefinished, it won’t expose people to fumes, are more durable, and even make the design coordination process easier. Prefinished floors are treated with aluminum-oxide crystals, a very tough substance. That enables them to withstand heavy foot traffic and other kinds of wear.
Since the consumer already has samples, they know exactly what they are getting and design around them. On the other hand, when it’s on-site, there’s a greater choice of stains so you can better control the color, grain, and even the sheen. Prefinished has standard grains, such as oak.
Currently, the most popular choices are hickory, oak (both red and white), maple, cherry, and walnut, but you aren't limited to only those. There are hundreds from which to choose, but you’ll need to consider extra strength needs, as well as whether or not you want something subtle or more dramatic. That not only means choosing between a domestic and exotic species but also deciding if you like an abundance of grains and knots or something quieter.
