Once you have the perfect species in place, you can move on to sealing and stain preference. Here, it’s important to note that site-finished flooring offers far more stain color options than prefinished materials do. However, it often comes down to how much time you’re willing to allot to the installation because site-finished materials do take longer to install.
While these floors are exceptionally durable and resistant to wear and stain, especially when properly installed and finished, they can also be refinished. After a few decades, wear will finally begin to show through, and this process strips all that away to reveal a brand-new layer of wood. This is a great time to change the stain color and finish type if you prefer to do so.
Finishing your floors with a hand-scraped, distressed, or vintage finish can help protect your floors by hiding signs of wear.
