Howard Brickman from our sister site the Journal of Light Construction, walks readers through the steps of installing a refinished strip floor.
As Brickman writes:
"In the past, the only option was unfinished flooring, and the homeowners had to endure the hassle of sanding and finishing after the installation. These days, prefinished strip flooring has been gaining popularity—in fact, it now makes up more than half of the market. The prep work is the same as for unfinished strip flooring, but the installation requires more care because of the prefinished surface. The best part is that the job is done when the last board is nailed in—no noisy, dusty, and smelly sanding and finishing.”
