How to Choose the Right Finish for Your Hardwood Floors

Choosing a custom finish for your hardwood floor can be overwhelming. You have endless options available, and each one has different characteristics that can influence your final decision. Learn more about what to consider before selecting the perfect finish for your home’s flooring.

What to Consider When Selecting a Floor Finish

One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing between water- and oil-based finishes. They’re both reliable but have key differences that could affect your decision, including coating thickness and overall appearance. Each system will also have a different timeframe for chemicals to evaporate and harden. Water-based polys dry faster and allow you to apply multiple coats in a single day, while oil-based polys need at least 24 hours before applying the next one.
