Building your dream home requires a lot of attention to detail that is why typical house construction takes a lot of time. However, if you need to finish the project as soon as possible, you can opt for ready-made materials that can be nailed into place directly after purchase. prefinished flooring are basically typical hard wood slabs that have already been sanded, finished, sealed, and ready for direct installation. After the contractors are done putting every slab into place, all you literally need to do is sweep it up and you’re all set.
As mentioned, they are ready to install. It hastens the construction time significantly without sacrificing the quality of the floor. As long as you get a skilled contractor like Wood Floor Refinishing Novi, your floors will turn out great.
The coating used for this type of floor is urethane. It is a clear tough plastic that doesn’t smell. You also avoid any kind of injury because the surface is smooth making random wood chips less likely.
There is a wide variety of designs or grains you can choose from.
It is easy to find in your typical general big box store. Just make sure they have enough stocks to complete your flooring before committing.
They can be refinished when needed. Just contact your contractor to have the urethane coat removed and apply a new finishing.
Sanding and finishing is not required during installation, so the time is cut down significantly. Just keep watch for these when your contractor does the installation:
See to it that the first course is straight by using a level or attaching a taut string against the wall. You can also use a chalk line on the floor. If your wall is not straight, you can put shims against it to align the first course of flooring.
Straighten the concrete slab or plywood subfloor. Use a leveling compound or a floor patch on low spots to smooth out dips and valleys. After which, allow it to set before doing any further work.
Use a rubber mallet to hammer each floor board tightly together before the glue dries. A rubber mallet is non-marring so you can avoid damages to the surface.
