Q: Unfortunately, parquet is not the look we are after. We do want wide and long planks, engineered for a tighter look. I guess it is back to whether or not the sealers will keep us protected.
A: For protection against spills or pet accidents, pre finished is not a good choice. Each board or plank/panel is individually finished. You don’t have a seal over the entire floor, including the edges where the boards join. If you want a long strip or plank look, you are better off to go unfinished, having the floors finished on site for that reason.
