Sequoia specializes in prefinished floors

Although you can save money when you refinish your hardwood floors yourself, the potential dangers may not be worth it. You could risk damaging your floors beyond repair. Consider purchasing prefinished wood floors.

With prefinished floors, all the work is already done for you

When you choose a prefinished floor, the stain and sealant has been added, so there’s no more work to do. They can be immediately installed in your home with no odor and no mess. Sequoia Ltd. sells prefinished wood floors, among other products. We find that homeowners appreciate the ease of installation. They’re ready to use right away. You don’t have to wait for floors to dry or air out your home for strong chemical odors. To get beautiful floors quickly and easily, prefinished floors are a popular option.

If your floor is unfinished…

If you like DIY projects, refinishing a floor may not be the best one to try. If you make a mistake, it really shows up on the wood flooring, which could devalue the appearance of your home.

There are many other costs associated with finishing the floor yourself—from top coats to stains and recoating—the prices can really add up.

Hiring a professional refinisher costs money. And as layers of coatings are added, as well as buffing and sanding, with dust flying around in the air, you may not be able to step inside your home for 2 to 5 days. Waiting for the finish to dry can take weeks of going without furniture in your home. This can be a major inconvenience. Even if the floor FEELS dry, if you move in furniture too soon, the floor can still be vulnerable to scrapes until the finish is fully cured.

The professionals at Sequoia can refinish your floors for you, and we do it in a thorough, timely manner. You won’t have to worry about whether or not you’re using the wrong kind of stain on a particular type of wood. If you don’t choose our prefinished flooring, we have the expertise to give you a professionally done, finished product.

Benefits of prefinished floors

In addition to the ease of installation and ready-to-use benefits, there are other good reasons to go with prefinished floors. Some of the material in the finish makes the flooring harder and more durable, which will extend the life span of the floor. It also makes it tougher to scratch or dent. If you should accidentally drop a heavy object, such as a heavy glass jar or metal appliance, and this results in a scratch, a simple buffing can take it right out with no problem.
