Finishing in place is the traditional method of completing a solid hardwood floor. Sometimes circumstances make it very challenging, and it is possible to request pre-finishing options. But generally speaking, the end results of finishing in place are superior to other methods in terms of consistency, color and finish matching.
We recommend finishing in place to preserve the best attributes of your solid wood wide-plank floor. We offer a couple options to make the job easier – pre-sanding as well as end-trimming so each plank is ready to install when you take it off the pile. With finishing in place you have available the benefit of a penetrating oil based finish which will reveal the inner glow and cannot be duplicated by any other method. And depending on your skill level or that of your installer (we recommend a professional) your choices of color, sheen and texture are infinite.
