Unfinished flooring refers to flooring that requires “on-site” sanding and finishing after installation. This comes is a wide varity of wood types. The species range from domestic (i.e. red & white oak, walnut, maple, cherry, pine, etc.) and exotic (i.e. Ipe, cherry, jatoba, etc.). The widths range from 1-1/2″ to 7″ and up. General rule of thumb is the wider the board the more costly it will be.
A typical unfinished floor is an oak floor; either red or white oak. After the installation the floor is sanded and finished. The floor can be left natural or stained to a color the customer chooses. This floor can be resanded and the color changed as many times as requested. Thus making your unfinished floor a lifetime investment!
