Raw flooring requires a messy sanding at the end, plus, of course, the
finishing. You get a flatter and smoother floor, and have some flexibility
in how it is finished. Prefinished is obviously less labor and the factory
finish is tough. The grooves between strips are an annoyance, and
refinishing would reqire quite deep sanding to eliminate the grooves. Cost
per square foot is comparable.
