Due to its versatility, engineered flooring has gained a strong foothold in the hardwood flooring industry. Pre-finished engineered flooring is a more common product than unfinished engineered flooring. However, there are a few circumstances in which unfinished engineered flooring is more desirable than pre-finished.
Not only is an engineered unfinished product more stable but one of the drawbacks to a pre-finished engineered flooring is the lack of customized colors available. In a circumstance where engineered flooring is the best choice and you have a client who is headstrong about a certain color floor, then you may have to go with unfinished. Unfinished engineered floors can be sanded and finished similar to unfinished solid wood floors. The ability to select unique colors with unfinished engineered is something that can make clients quite happy.
