Prefinished flooring is always the best choice when it comes to exotic engineered hardwood floors or exotic solid hardwood floors. The main reason for this is that many of these exotic flooring options are extremely dense. This density makes the floors very hard and a very hard floor is difficult to sand and finish inside a home.
Exotic hardwoods such as Brazilian Cherry, Brazilian Walnut, Acacia, Santos Mahogany, and Brazilian Teak are excellent choices for prefinsihed flooring. The ability to UV cure these woods during the finishing process helps bring out the true beauty of the natural woods.
Making sure you get prefinished exotic hardwood flooring instead of unfinished is a good idea because it is becoming harder and harder to find solid exotic hardwood floors. They are becoming harder to get because all responsible manufacturers practice responsible deforestation which means they are only allowed to cut down a specific number of trees per year.
Since solid exotic hardwoods are hard to come by you will want to focus you would have to use and unfinished engineered exotic wood, but then you can only finish them once. If you buy exotic woods as prefinsihed flooring then you won’t have to worry about refinishing them for 25 years or so, depending on the type of finish.
