You As a home owner can easily get polyurethane from lowes or home depot , it is the easiest product for a home owner to use , Heck Easy for me as a professional , Here's why . If you mess up you just buff it with a 120 screen and do it again , If you want to seal and coat ,that would be a water base or glitsa finish , I would not try water base as an DYI , Swedish is pretty nasty smelling , and you need to get a Vapor cartridge full face mask and nitrile gloves . I would stick with poly for ease tacomahardwoodfloors.com
Well my floors were redone by professionals a 3 years ago and I had an area that did not have any hardwood. I recently installed new hardwood to match and used polyurethane but the finish does not match. My finish is a more yellowish finish and the other finish looks richer. I asked them to use a clear coat no stain when they did my floor.
Will my section eventually match up over time or do I have to use something else??
By the way my floor is oldstyle strip flooring. I got a repair kit to do the new section(it's unfinished maple)
