Hardwood Flooring Finishes
Whether you love a natural look or prefer a stain, you want your hardwood floor finish to look its best and hold up to daily use. With old hardwood sealants, yellowing or discoloration could occur with age, but today’s variety of finishes are better quality, easy to apply, and can even offer moisture protection for the kitchen and bath. We can help you with your hardwood floor choices from high traffic to ecofriendly products for a flawless finish every time.
How to Choose the Right Hardwood Floor Finish
While you do have a few options, most hardwood sealants fall into one of two categories: oil-based or water-based. Which one you prefer may depend on how much protection you need. For example, a formal dining or living room may not get the same level of wear and tear as the kitchen. These are some of the features for the kinds of finishes to help you decide:
Water-based – these sealants are quite popular and are available in semi-gloss, high-gloss, or satin finishes. They tend to be more expensive and may require multiple coats, but luckily, they require less drying time.
Oil-based – these varieties are typically used in commercial settings, from office buildings to sports arenas. They take quite a bit of time to dry between coats, but they hold up to heavy usage. They may discolor over time and may only last three to five years.
Either category can work well in your home and may enhance the texture and variations of the natural wood type. Our experts can also help you select stains and even match your existing stain for refinishing, additions, and repair work.
