Forum Title: Pre-Finished or Finished On Site
I'm about to buy engineered hardwood for my basement and I'm debating between installing (glued down to concrete) unfinished wood and staining it on-site or simply getting pre-finished. My main and upstairs are finished on site (pic attached) and would love to have the whole house flow with the same look. My GC is recommending against finished on site as he is suggesting that any damage to a board and the whole area would need to be re-stained. With pre-finished you can remove the board and replace it. Any recommendations here? Thx

On site is the best .. Why can't you just stain one board ??

The National Wood Flooring Association even has tutorial videos detailing how to remove and replace a single board, including staining and finishing the board to blend in with the rest of the floor.
