So as you can see in the other post I was in Lumber Liquidators today trying to decide on floors.
Out of the pre-finished floors I choose the Brazilian Redwood 3-1/4" prefinished timber. (the above photo is our sample palate- the tile is our kitchen back splash but in the 2 x 1 shape).
I know it will darken up over time and I'm fine with that.
1 of the GC's I met with last week recommended getting unfinished timber so that after the final paint/hardware installation etc they could come in sand the floors and then seal the timber.
His reasoning was that even though the floor will be papered for protection after the install that when they are putting the kitchen in etc or carrying in the appliances that things get scratched and with prefinished you can never get it to look right.
I'm confused....why cant you just sand and repair prefinished to match the rest of the boards etc?
Does anyone with real world experience and not here say have an opinion?
Thanks in advance,
