Engineered hardwood floors can be a good solution for multiple installation situations. Providing the same look and feel as a hardwood floor, engineered hardwood has a top layer that is true hardwood. Some manufacturers offer a thick enough layer of hardwood to allow refinishing once or twice. The engineered base of these floors can allow for greater durability in areas impacted by moisture and greater flexibility installing over other flooring surfaces.
Pre-finished hardwood floors have the finish already applied from the factory. With a pre-finished hardwood you already know the finished look of the floor when purchasing. The installation process is often quicker with less on-site stain and sealers. These are true hardwood floors and can be refinished in the future. One potential drawback is that seams are not sealed as they would be in a traditional hardwood floor.
