FLOOR REFINISHING: 

RENEW, REFRESH, REFINISH

When it comes to floor refinishing, choosing the right finish is crucial for achieving the desired look, durability, and maintenance requirements. Three common options are varnish, polyurethane, and oil-based finishes, each with its unique characteristics and benefits. 

Varnish, a traditional choice, offers a glossy, durable finish that enhances the natural beauty of the wood while providing excellent protection against scratches and moisture. Its application requires skill and precision to achieve a smooth, even coat, making it a popular choice for high-traffic areas like living rooms and hallways.

Polyurethane, on the other hand, is a versatile and durable option available in both water-based and oil-based formulations. Water-based polyurethane dries faster, has lower odor, and is easier to clean up, making it a popular choice for indoor applications. It provides a clear, glossy finish that resists yellowing over time and offers excellent protection against scratches and stains. Oil-based polyurethane, while slower to dry and requiring proper ventilation during application, offers a richer, amber tone that enhances the warmth and character of hardwood floors, making it a preferred choice for rustic or traditional settings. Oil-based finishes, such as tung oil or linseed oil, penetrate the wood to enhance its natural color and grain while providing a matte or satin sheen. These finishes offer a more natural look and feel compared to varnish or polyurethane but may require more frequent maintenance, including periodic reapplication to maintain their protective properties.
