There are three types of hardwood flooring:
Site-finished; (3/4" solid flooring. Installed, sanded, finished onsite). the best looking and performing floor to have. No "V" grooves to catch dirt or liquids. A beautiful one-solid piece look that is easiest to maintain.
Pre-finished; (3/4" Solid flooring, sanded and sealed at the mill). With "V" grooves or overwood (small ridges). It's easy to spot a pre-finished floor. Easier to install but a poorer investment over time.
Engineered Plank; (1/2" - 3/4" thick - real wood flooring laminated on plywood). Usually used with floating installation over concrete slab or radiant heat. Performs very well with foam rubber pad underneath.

Water-based finished have come a long way with the introduction of Glitsa's new "Max" finish. It equals the strength and durability of traditional Swedish finish, but with a lighter color tone; friendlier to our ecology, though a bit more expensive.
We have had many people inquire about the differences between water-base and Swedish (solvent-based) finishes. Here is some information to assist you in making your decision:
Swedish finish doesn't show scratches as much as water-based finish. Swedish finish brings out a deeper, richer color in woods. A water-based finish is usually lighter in color. Swedish finish costs less than its water based counterpart.
Water-based finishes will not patina (darken) nearly as much as Swedish finish when exposed to sunlight. Therefore, if you have lots of windows and do not want the floor to patina over time, a water-based product may be what you are looking for. There are less VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds in a water-based product. There is less "off-gasing" and takes less time to cure than a Swedish finish. A water-based product is less smelly than the Swedish finish and is easier on allergy sufferers.
