Sanded,stained and urethaned wood floor failure


I am helping out an owner as a long distance property manager. We had a local guy still in the army do repairs with his crew on one of the owner's rental townhouses.

The prior tenant beat up the wood floors. The contractor sanded them, stained them a darker color and supposedly urethaned them. The handyman we have saw it being urethaned.

The new tenant said the dark stain is coming through and the floors look bad. The handyman has verified it.

My choices are get a real wood flooring contractor out there or try to have the original guy fix it.

I am not very good at DIY but I painted and urethaned things like skateboards when I was young about 30+ years ago. It was pretty easy.

Any suggestions? What is a good brand for urethaning stained wood floors. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

We have no pictures, not even a location in your profile so someone could suggested someone local to take a look at it.
If some first time DIY did this with one coat I'm sure it's a mess.

Sounds like the new water based floor urethanes, goes on very thin! Would take at least 3 - 4 coats to match a solvent base coating

Frank.... Maybe Jmay will be along.....

but in general, not all stains are compatible with poly topcoats.... some have a "stearate" issue.

As to solving any incompatibilty... I don't know if repetive topcoating will solve it... or top coating with a differnt poly will... or you are back to sanding and refinishing again.

Good luck

Thanks. Oddly enough, it is in Colorado Springs. I like your avatar by the way.
