I am thinking about re-finishing my floors myself, but wanted some guidance regarding Polly.
I have read a little regarding Oil vs Water based, but wanted opinions what works best, and holds up the best as well.
I have a fairly new home with hardwood that was finished by the builder. he didnt do all that great of a job, and the poly is actually peeling and flaking at the bottom of our stairs.
Should I go with Water or Oil? Any name brands i should use, or stay away from?
Is a belt sander the way to go, or can i use the random 3 pad style sander that Lowes rents out. (Varathane)
What Grit should i start out with, and then finish with? (Foors are in ok shape).
how many coats of polly should u put down, and in between coats of polly, do you re-sand, and if so do you do it by hand?
