Unfinished hardwood flooring is a growing favorite among homeowners in Chicago IL who prefer a rustic look. Technically, any hardwood can be purchased unfinished, though it’s an especially popular choice for oak, white ash, pine and other woods that look good with a variety of finishes.
Unfinished hardwood floors require sanding, staining, buffering and coating during the installation process. The work is messy and time-consuming process, but it has several advantages. For starters, the floor boards tend to be more stable because they were sanded after placement. Installing unfinished hardwood also makes it easier to maintain continuity between individual floor boards.
If you purchase unfinished hardwood floors, be sure to hire a reputable installation team. Floor Coverings International does not recommend installing any hardwood flooring without previous experience, but installing unfinished hardwood comes with even more room for errors that can ultimately detract from the final look of your floor.
