Hardwood flooring question
Can you install pre finished hardwood flooring in the same direction as your beams.

doing that probably requires you to change/add more your subflooring to somthing stronger, such as 3/4 plywood...etc.... whether it is prefinished or not has no baring.

You mean joists not beams. You should always install planks across the joists. Your subfloor is probably 3/4" thick already, but that is standard.

A floating prefinished hardwood can run either direction.
