If you’re thinking of getting your timber
floor polished, here are some points to consider in terms of choosing the stain
or finish best suited to your floor:
There’s such a huge range of brands and products on the market nowadays, it can be a little overwhelming! At MAX Floor Sanding, our years of experience as floorers and sanders have led us to recommend various brands to customers for their quality, durability and ability to resist scratching.
Popular finishes can be divided into three
- Water-based Finishes
- Oil-based Polyurethane Finishes,
- Solvent-based Polyurethanes
Water based finishes are very popular as they tend to have minimal odour and are also quick drying. Because they are resistant to scratching they are perfect for medium traffic areas. Water based finishes will retain the natural colours in the timber and won’t yellow over time. If you want to stay in your home during the finishing process, we would strongly recommend a water based finish because the minimal odour and quick drying time will allow you to get on with things.
polyurethane finishes are durable and will suit
most types of timber floors. This group of finishes are easy to maintain and
relatively inexpensive. They are easy to apply and therefore popular with DIY
enthusiasts, but, they can yellow over time.
Solvent-based polyurethanes are MAX Floor Sanding’s top pick for heavy traffic areas as they have a high resistance to dents and scratches. However, be prepared, solvent-based products may cause your wood to darken over time. We recommend vacating the property when using any products in this family because they release such a strong odour.
