To refinish wood floors, you don't always have to sand them

You can walk on your refinished hardwood floors in just a day or less. Screening and top coating is a method of renewing the finish on a wood floor without actually removing the old finish and sanding down the wood. It will repair most signs of wear and create a uniform, sealed surface on the floor. It is relatively quick and inexpensive and can be repeated indefinitely.

Oil-based Finishes

Oil-based poly has a way of filling in and flowing over the open grain of many hardwoods. This gives a desirable "grain-filled" characteristic. And it will develop into an amber (brownish-orange) look as it ages over the next several months. The amber look is a nice addition to this type of polyurethane especially if you want a warm tinted look. .

A coat of this kind of poly can dry and be recoated in approximately 12 hours. Humidity and temperature can slightly change this 12 hour period. This type of finish will take 3-7 days to cure hard enough before furniture can be placed back onto the floor. Unfortunately, the smell of oil-based poly will linger for several days or even weeks. This has been one objection to people who suffer from allergies and sensitivities.

Oil-based poly will always have a place in the hardwood floorr industry, but with the trendy changes in law we can expect that newer, more competitive finishes will emerge.

Water Based Flooring Finishes

Water-based poly is absolutely clear and remains that way for years. For this reason is becoming more and more desirable on gymnasium floors; the maple flooring remains light and natural without the darkening and ambering. Also, all sheens (satin, semi-gloss, gloss) have the same durability, and a two-component (poly with a hardener additive) water-based poly is harder than any oil-based polyurethane .

There are very few fumes. In fact, by the first day after I’ve finished the last coat, people have told me that they can’t even smell the fumes.

Any given coat will dry enough in 1 hour so that the owners can walk on it. The water-based finishes (with hardener) has proven to be tougher, more durable, and more resistant to household spills.
