What is Site Finished Hardwood?
Site finished hardwood, or unfinished hardwood, is wood flooring that is brought into a home unfinished, installed, and then sanded and finished on-site. This differs from prefinished hardwood flooring where the planks are finished at another location before being brought in and installed.
Where to Use Site Finished Hardwood
Site finished hardwood looks great throughout the home but it is particularly useful in a couple of specific situations. This type of wood flooring is perfect for when you are trying to match your new floors to existing hardwood. Instead of risking the prefinished flooring not matching your current wood, site finished hardwood isn’t finished until it is sitting right next to your current flooring. This eliminates any matching issues when it comes to the finish or texture of the boards.
Site finished hardwood is also a great base on which to add accents such as inlays and medallions. These decorative elements are installed into hardwood by cutting down into the wood and securing the design into the flooring, typically with glue. You can utilize borders, personal logos, flourishes, or any other number of designs with wood inlays and medallions.
