Let’s admit it. Installing hardwood flooring is quite a task and not many do it yourselfers succeed perfectly during their first try. True, installing hardwood flooring is a skill, but it can be less of a chore and a headache if you go with pre-finished hardwood flooring in the first place.

Prefinished means it has already been coated and sealed with translucent film which serves as its protection from daily wear. What finishings can do is shield your hardwood floor from spills and scratches, and make it easier for you to wipe or mop clean.

If you’re thinking of installing hardwood flooring yourself, you can enjoy the greatest ease and convenience with pre-finished planks. With pre-finished hardwood floors, the task of nailing the flooring to your subfloor ends after the drilling is done.

If you purchased pure hardwood oak or maple (or whatever is available), you will have to apply finishings, sand it down and put on wax and polishers after. The amount of time to perform the task of installing a hardwood floor is halved if prefinished wood is used.

Pre-finished floors also have a better finish than most independently finished floors. Because the application is uniform and the volumes of coating controlled and predetermined, you are sure that every prefinished hardwood floor plank is of the best quality. Normally, prefinished floors are thrice sanded and coated with aluminum oxide finish eight times. They are also likely to have been tested for various normal wear situations and made more resilient.

Pre-finished flooring is a little more expensive than pure hardwood planks. However, when you do the math on everything that has to be done to make the basic form shine to your liking, you’ll actually eventually spend a lot more with the latter, not to mention the heavy labor that you need to put into it.

Sure, you can argue that you can always hire professionals to do the job for you, but if cost is an issue, then you’ll be thanking the high heavens that somebody had enough foresight to come up with prefinished hardwood flooring. Be a wise and practical consumer. Sanding and finishing entire floorings is a thing of the past. Now that pre-finished floors are available, you should spare yourself from the hassle.

Mike’s team was great. We had a very large project consisting of some carpentry and repainting the entire house. From start to finish they impressed me with their attention to detail and just overall work. Highly recommend.

I couldn't have asked for more. From the estimate to completion, Mike and his crew were top notch and professional. I just needed a few rooms painted but his price was fair and everything went according to plan. I recommend Mike's Painting to anyone looking for someone you can trust to do a job well done.

Mike and his crew were FANTASTIC. We called him, gave him the scope of the work, he gave us a very reasonable estimate on the spot, and had the crew start the project the following week. They painting my entire 2200 sq ft. house in TWO DAYS. Very efficient, quality work. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat! Mike was always very clear, patient, and nice. Best painters in Marietta, GA

Excellent service from start to finish. They replaced the drywall in my kitchen ceiling that has removed due to a water leak. They also repainted the ceiling and replaced the light fixture. It took them less than two hours to complete the entire job. Work area was clean and looked like nothing ever happened. Thank you!
