Proper Finish for Wood Flooring

Answered by Brendan ~ March 4, 2010 ~ No Comments

I'm looking at refinishing the floors in our Provo home. The range of available finishes is mind-boggling. Is oil-modified urethane the best finish?

Is oil-modified urethane the best? Well that depends on who you talk to and how you define, "best". It is generally the most used and it is easy to apply, but is does amber with age. There is moisture-cured urethane which is more durable and moisture resistant and comes in a non-yellowing formula, but it is much more difficult to apply and should by applied by professional installers. There is also water-based urethane, it is easy to apply, non-yellowing and tends to be more expensive. There are lots of other floor finishes out there, I just gave a brief overview of the urethane family of finishes. I think you are on the right track, if you are considering an oil-modified urethane sealer, you should be very happy with the results.
