But it takes one day to install prefinished boards, and no acclimation process is necessary. Homeowners who are considering the easier installation method should keep in mind that the new floor will have a beveled look. On-site installers do not have access to robust factory finishes. Therefore, prefinished boards usually have a more extended finish warranty.
For the same beautiful hardwood look at a lower cost, choose engineered wood flooring. While there is a layer of hardwood on the surface, the base is composed of many layers of plywood that are positioned in a crisscross pattern. Because of its composition, the flooring can tolerate moisture. Therefore, unlike solid wood flooring, this man-made flooring can be installed in a basement. Installation takes one day, and the flooring can usually be refinished once in future years when it becomes worn. Many wood species and numerous matte, semi-gloss, and high-gloss finishes are available. Distressed and wire-brushed are two popular textures.
