Solid & Prefinished - Which Hardwood Floor Is Best For Me?

Solid hardwood and prefinished hardwood look and feel quite similar but work very differently. If you’re not sure which flooring type is best for your space, here’s a closer look at the differences and benefits of each.


Solid hardwood floors have been used in homes for centuries and if properly installed and cared for can remain a part of your home for years. Keep in mind that solid hardwood doesn’t work well with moisture and should never be installed below grade.

Will Humidity Affect My Hardwood?

In general, your hardwood flooring will almost always be affected by some levels of humidity. However, our flooring experts can help you plan your new hardwood floor from start to finish, and we’ll give advice on how to ensure the longevity of your flooring.

  1. Avoid installing hardwood in areas prone to moisture, e.g., bathrooms and kitchens.
  2. Maintain your indoor air humidity with a humidistat or hydrometer. Aim to keep humidity levels around 42%.
