After the hardwood floor sanding is complete, you may opt to stain them a color or finish them clear. There are three different high-quality finish options that we offer our clients, and a fourth which is used in property mgmt situations. Keep in mind that we can tailor our floor refinishing process to whatever you like.
Good. Our entry level finish includes Basic Coatings "Emulsion" Waterbased Finish. Basic Coatings is headquarterd in Toledo, Ohio... made in the USA.
Don't let the term "entry level" fool you. This is an excellent quality, durable, residential waterbased floor finish. Waterbased finishes are more environmentally responsible than even low VOC oil based polyurethane finishes. It's not UV sensitive so it won't amber over time, dries fast allowing light foot traffic in approximately 3 hours and has a deep rich appearance.
Emulsion is fully cured in 7 days. Using wood stain as a sealer, we apply 3 coats of this product directly over the stain. We recommend this finish for less active households. Typically, if you have an empty nest, then this finish is a
great option for you.
Better. The next level of finish we like to use is Basic Coatings "Street Shoe". It's a 2 component commercial grade waterbased finish ideal for heavy residential use and commercial applications. Once catalyzed it dries and is walkable (in socks) after only 4 hours and maximum cure time is about 2 days. Street Shoe is a "high-side" middle of the road option and very popular choice. If you can tolerate the smell of a freshly painted house, you'll have no problem with this option keep in mind most people are not hyper sensitive. Street Shoe's Satin sheen level is slightly shinnier than the rest of satin finishes in its class.
Best. Our premium finish system includes Bona "Traffic" Finish. This is a Swedish finish designed for use in high traffic applications.
It's also a 2 component commercial grade waterbased finish ideal for heavy-use residential and commercial applications. It has a unique combination of durability, scratch and scuff resistance, clarity and grain definition, giving the wood a vibrant rich color. Traffic boasts a true Satin appearance. We apply 3 heavy coats to give your floors outstanding protection. It dries in about 4 hours and is fully cured in just 1 day. We highly recommend this finish for active households, those with children and dogs. We also use this finish in commercial settings like offices or retail stores. If it's in your budget and you want the best of durability and appearance, this is for you.
Unless otherwise requested, SATIN FINISH is used in all packages.
