Beautiful hardwood flooring in a Jackson, MS living area

Hardwood flooring is made to last

Hardwood floors have withstood the test of time. Discriminating homeowners continue the tradition of installing this high-quality floor covering that can last over one hundred years. What's more, the floor can be refinished any time it begins to look worn. Mississippi Pro Design Center is a hardwood flooring retailer in Pearl, Mississippi, that can help you find the best flooring for your home. We have a selection of wood floor coverings as well as carpet, vinyl, and more.

Unfinished Hardwood

In the past, only unfinished solid hardwood boards, that were each milled from an individual piece of wood, were available for flooring installation. This is still the best choice for new construction or large renovation projects. The floor is sanded, stained, and sealed in the home. This process takes about two weeks, including time for acclimation. With on-site finishing, floors have a flush look. Also, spaces between boards are sealed, a detail that is important if you're installing unfinished wood in the kitchen. Most often, boards are installed by nailing them to a wood subfloor. This flooring can't be installed in a finished basement.

Prefinished Hardwood

Prefinished hardwood is finished in the factory so installation is completed in a day. Chemical sealers applied by factories are more powerful than those available to on-site crews. Factory finishes may have warranties as high as 25 years while a 3- to 5-year warranty is typical for on-site finishes. Engineered wood flooring is also prefinished. Boards have a plywood, lumber, or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) core that is attached to a layer of hardwood. In general, both wood floor coverings are installed by connecting boards together in a tongue and groove manner so they float over the subfloor. Most prefinished wood floors can be refinished.
