A clear finish is the most popular selection, but you can also choose from 1 or 2 color stains, wire brushing, bleaching and fuming which means your options are limited only by your imagination. Select from a list of stock colors or send a sample for a custom match.
Aluminum oxide finishes are generally urethane based but have aluminum oxide infused into them to add fantastic scratch resistance. Aluminum oxide is a naturally occurring element and is normally mined in a crystal form and then ground up for products including sandpaper, plastics, sunscreen and cosmetics.
This type of finish protects the flooring in a few different ways. First it seals the wood to reduce the absorption of moisture into the planks which will help control shrinkage and expansion between the winter and summer months. The finish also reduces the amount of UV light the wood absorbs from natural light inside of the home. It provides a very durable finish for high traffic areas or pets.
Pre-finished flooring generally has a “microbevel”, a small, 45 degree bevel on the edge of the planks approximately 0.10” from edge to edge. This bevel is highly recommended and allows for small deviations in height which would normally be sanded smooth on an in-place finishing situation.
Additionally, a matching bevel is added on the cut ends of each plank.
Your pre-finished floor will have defects removed and the ends of each plank cut square which means it will be ready to install when you receive it. This removes the likelihood of chipped finish, as well as ensuring that the ends will have the same finish and pattern as the edges.
*Other items such as stair treads and hand railings can also be pre-finished to match your floor. Ask for details.
