Polyurethane for Hardwood Floor Refinishing in MD

This is where most homeowners get confused because if you ask 10 floor finishers what to use you will get 10 different answers. After being in this business for 30 years, we've tried nearly every product you could possibly imagine. There are many finishes on the market today, but let us focus on the 2 kinds that we recommend.

  • Oil Modified Polyurethane

    • High-Gloss/Semi-Gloss/Satin finishes available
    • 8-12 hours drying time dependent upon the weather and job site conditions
    • Not the most environmentally safe product-omits solvent fumes
    • Combustible (while drying)
    • Normal application consists of 3 coats, screening with a fiber disc in between coats
    • Ambers with age
    • Floors can not be walked on while they are drying

  • Water-Based Polyurethane

    • High-Gloss/Semi-Gloss/Satin finishes available
    • Dries in 2-3 hours
    • Environmentally safe
    • Non-Combustible
    • Dries perfectly clear-will not change color in time
    • UV protection
    • Normal application is 3 coats-it is thinner than oil
    • Floors can not be walked on while they are drying

Staining of Hardwood Floors in Maryland

If we are supposed to apply a stain to your wood floors, then we need to know the exact color. If you are unsure as to the color you wish to use, please make arrangements for someone to be at your job site on the first day of the sanding process so that we may do a stain test for your approval.

If this is not possible, please notify the office so that we can arrange for the test to be done at a more convenient time. When staining dark colors, it is virtually impossible not to get a minimum amount of stain on your door jams, spindles, side skirts,etc, so please be prepared to do some touch up painting. Also, when changing colors from very dark stain to natural or light stain, it is impossible to remove all the dark stain from open grain areas, especially where hand scrapping is involved. Note: Some nail holes that are black, due to the fact that they have gotten wet in the past, will not sand out.
