Refinishing Wood Floors
Thanks for the replies. I previously had some of my floors refinished with another company and was advised the commercial water based sealant wwas better than the oil, and therefore cost more. I was charged $2.75/sq foot.
Recently, I had different company quote me $1.50/sq foot for an oil based sealant. He said that he only applies oil based sealant, but could go with water if that is preferred for .50/sq foot additional.
I did some quick internet reasearch that indicates the water is better quality in that it won't get discolored, and that it has less odor. But after the past post, it appears that oil is still popular. I guess there is no real hard and fast answer here.
How can I determine the quality of sealant used? I asked him, and was told that the sealant he uses can not be bought at Home Depot, but only purchased at wood stores. Is there any way to tell was is good and what is crap?
I sincerely appreciate both responses and any that may follow. Also, is ther any additiional informatiion that i should be concerned with before work is started?
