Question

Varathane Floor Refinishing system


Has anyone used the varathane renewal wood floor restoring system? I just bought a home with wood floors that are in good condition except for the topcoat which has a few scratches and appears to have polyurethane thats worn down in spots.

It seems too good to be true...any feedback would be appreciated.

I've heard a few bad stories about the Varathane products and I would advise not using it. If it's just worn down in a few spots and not down to bare wood I would call a floor finishing professional and have them take a look. More than likely it just needs a new coat of poly. The biggest problem is that you don't know if it is water base or oil base and they are not interchangeable. A flooring professional will be able to put on a new coat and keep from any major problems from occuring.

Just my opinion, Dave.

Thanks for the info Dave. You're the first person thats even heard of the product so far, so I don't think I'll be using it.

I used the kit yesterday in a small bedroom and the results were amazing. It made the floor shine like it had been sanded and coated (which I did to a larger bedroom a few years back). As long as your floor is in reasonably good shape, this product is for real!

It was milky white for the first 30-45 minutes but turns clear as it dries. I used a paint roller to apply the finish rather than the applicator.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! My husband says, "I wish I would have known that before I started freaking out!" We were worried we were going to have to rent a sander and redo the whole entire floor!
