painesville site-finished hardwood floor New hardwood floors are an exciting addition to the home, but they require a choice that many homeowners may not be aware of. Hardwood floors can come prefinished or site-finished, and knowing your options can make a significant difference in homeowner satisfaction. Today, the experts at Floor Coverings International of Mentor want to emphasize the benefits of site-finished hardwood floors for Painesville homes in search of beauty, customization, and long-lasting comfort.

Custom Site-Finished Hardwood

If your home includes pre-existing hardwood floors, and you would like to have new hardwood floors installed in addition to these, site-finished planks are an excellent choice. Their on-site finish allows your installation professionals to customize the planks so that they match the color and finish of the existing wood floors. For uniformity of wood floors, site-finished hardwood is optimal.


The time and craftsmanship that go into site-finished hardwood floors is unlikely to be matched by prefinished wood floors, which are produced and finished in factory settings long before they reach your home. This means that site-finished hardwood will tend to cost more than prefinished floors, with the latter being simpler to make and install.

Repairs and Lifespan

Site-finished hardwood is sanded, stained, and sealed on location, which means that your installers can work toward smoothing out irregularities in the flooring. By contrast, prefinished hardwood arrives on location with an industrial strength finish that makes such irregularities difficult to fix.


Site-finished hardwood is also much simpler to sand down and refinish in the event of surface damage. Site-finished hardwood is often the best way to go for Painesville homeowners who prioritize this kind of longevity and the peace of mind that comes with it.
