Refinishing Quick Facts:
Wood flooring finishes come in several different types:
Oil-modified urethane provides an easy application. It is a solvent based polyurethane. A quick dry time of 8 hours leaves behind an amber color.
Swedish finish is very durable and dries with a slight amber. These finishes should be professionally applied and have a very strong odor.
Water-based urethane won’t yellow and dry clear. They dry fully in as little as 3 hours and do not have a strong odor.
Penetrating stain and wax soak into hardwood pores. This leaves a strong, hardened protective layer behind. Wax gives a satiny sheen with a low gloss.
