Hardwood or Prefinished
Hardwood flooring is not confined to just one style or color. There are some options that you will want to decide on before beginning the job.

Choosing the sheen and stain allows you to adapt and change your flooring to fit and flow with the design elements in your home.
Pre-finished hardwood flooring, on the other hand, is sealed and finished, at the factory, before installation. It is ready to be walked on from the moment the installation has taken place. This is great for projects with a fast turnaround or those with intense allergies.
The type of hardwood floor
Once you have decided on hardwood flooring for your home, your flooring contractor will select the right installation options for your project. Nail down hardwood floors is the most common installation method and considered the better-looking option. Because of the precision required to execute this installation properly, it is advised that you leave it to a seasoned professional with experience in nail-down hardwood flooring. Another installation option of hardwood flooring includes glue down floors. This option may sound easier, but is best left to a professional, as the adhesive can be messy and difficult to work with. The option of installation that is best for you will depend on a variety of factors, like the area or room it is installed in or the subflooring that is beneath it. A concrete sub-floor will not allow for the nail-down method and in this case, another option needs to be considered. Hardwood Floors Edison will assess the area and advise you on the options available.
