Refinishing hardwoods


I've been waiting to do my baseboards and move my furniture into my house til I refinish the hardwoods. However, Its been something I've had to put off doing for a while now. I would have to put it off for at least another week or so too. What I am asking is, at this point, colder weather here in New England and all, should I just do the baseboard now and wait til spring to do the floors and be extra careful around the baseboards when I do? Any harm in leaving the floors with ALMOST no finish left at all through the winter? The rooms are a living/quite room - not the TV room - which will not be used all that much, and the hall leading down to the bedrooms.

Refinishing hardwoods


I would just do it and get it over with. If you use a water base finish then there will be little to no off gassing and you can walk on it in as little as 4 hours. There is nothing wrong with doing it in the winter. It is actually better as it is lower in humidity.

Just my opinion, Dave.

Refinishing hardwoods


Cool. I'd rather be done w/ it too. Especiall considering it will be easier A. before baseboards are installed and
B. before furniture has to be moved.

Thanks dave.
