Depends on what the contractor uses. Most will use a clear solvent stain (xylene base) and some will use water based acrylics. If solvent stain is used then you should recoat with this in the future to avoid adhesion issues. Other sealers are used but these are the most common. Talk to your contractor and get the info from him to avoid future problems.

In other words if you use xylene you will never be able to use anything else,so choose wisely the first time.
