Prefinished wood is sanded, stained, and sealed in the factory. In general, factory-applied sealants are stronger than those applied on-site. Therefore, finish warranties tend to be longer. Be aware that the two types of wood floors have different looks. Use prefinished planks, and the floor has a beveled look. Use unfinished planks, and the floor has a flush look. Both types of hardwood flooring are installed by nailing the planks to a wood subfloor.
Engineered wood flooring expands the use of wood in the home. The surface layer is hardwood, while the base layer is usually plywood that tolerates moisture. Further, the flooring connects, so the floor floats over the subfloor. Because of these two factors, manufactured wood is appropriate for cement slabs and existing hard surface flooring. You can have engineered wood floors refinished one or two times if worn.
