Unfinished Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Unfinished hardwood flooring retains more of the wood’s natural characteristics, offering endless possibilities when it comes to the finishing options. At First Atlanta Flooring, you can find Coverland and FAF unfinished hardwood flooring, made of red oak or white oak. The floors are made in the U.S., while respecting carb emission standards for indoor air quality. Our boards come pre-sanded and include a standard tongue and groove system, convenient for multiple installation methods.
As a professional, you should know that unfinished hardwood flooring is more appropriate for new constructions and large renovations. When the floors are finished at the end, you don’t need to worry about accidents that might damage the floor during the work process. Speaking of floor damage, repairs are much easier on unfinished floors, because a scratched board can be individually sanded and refinished. Prefinished floors require the replacement of the entire section/floor when refinishing it.

How do they differ from prefinished hardwood flooring?
Prefinished hardwood flooring is factory-finished, meaning that each board is individually sprayed with a coat of polyurethane and then baked in an oven with aluminum oxide. Unfinished hardwood flooring is finished after installation.
How do you clean unfinished hardwood floors?
Unfinished hardwood flooring is more prone to damage than its prefinished alternative. Hence, you should use only damp cloth when cleaning it, and avoid sharp or abrasive products. You should also avoid soaking the floor when wet-mopping; excessive moisture will get in between the boards and will affect the floor. Another precautionary practice would be buying some mats and rugs, to prevent scratches and dents. Moreover, vacuuming the floors regularly also prolongs the floors’ lifespan.
Is unfinished hardwood flooring cheaper?
Yes, if you’re considering only the flooring itself. Once you factor in the costs of the finishing process, then prefinished flooring more often than not ends up being cheaper.
