Prefinished flooring allows for easy installation, and is available with many different type of wood.
Prefinished wood is cut to size with a groove and tongue that lock the pieces together for a solid fit. Its big advantage is that the floor surface is already coated with a very strong finish, either polyurethane or a similar hardwearing substance. This makes the wood very durable the moment it is acquired. Polyurethane coating is difficult to apply to conventional wooden flooring as it requires several days to be properly cured, during which time the floor cannot be walked upon. Prefinished floors can be walked upon the moment installation is finished.

Floating Timber Floors Perth
Prefinished timber works well for floating floors. Floating floors are not fixed to the underlying floor, which gives the room a certain degree of acoustic isolation. Normal, unfinished, timber requires sanding and surface treatment, which is not really possible on a floating floor. But prefinished timber works quite well when used as a floating floor.
