Unfinished flooring has the “edge” on other flooring. The square-edged milling gives hardwood floors in Victoria, BC a more natural appearance than v-groove, pre-finished flooring. Square-edged floorboards fit tightly together and form a smooth and seamless appearance after sanding and finishing. We recommend North American unfinished oak or maple. The ratio we use oak to other species is, 90% oak, 5% fir, and 5% maple. Even if you prefer the install and go appeal of pre-finished flooring stick with Canadian oak or maple for the best hardwood.
Pre-finished and engineered flooring comes with protective aluminum oxide finish already applied at the factory. These finishes are very durable and protect the wood surface for years. After 10-20 years of use, eventually they will have to be refinished. Sanding pre-finished flooring in Victoria, BC requires 5-10 times more sanding to remove the dirt-catching v-grooves. To remove the v-groove on most pre-finished flooring requires sanding 1/8 inch of wood.
Although pre-finished flooring is a quick and easy alternative to sand and finished flooring, the surface is not entirely smooth, has a manufactured appearance, and is harder to keep clean. Sand and finished hardwood flooring in Victoria, BC highlights the natural appearance of wood, is easier to clean, and is very durable. We will provide square-edged flooring, installation and refinishing from flooring craftsmen backed with hundreds of floors experience. We provide you wood flooring that is durable, natural, renewable, and easier to maintain.
To maintain hardwood flooring, use felt pads under furniture, chair, and table legs. Vacuuming, dust mopping, and wiping with a slightly damp cloth keeps hardwood floors in Victoria, BC maintenance-free and clean for years.
