Your existing hardwood floors are an important part of your property and your investment and it is critical to realize that whilst most wooden floors, if looked after correctly, will outlast you. However certain wooden floors can only be sanded a limited number times before they deteriorate. Therefore it is important to use a good sealer to protect your floors at the outset and re-coat again before the sealer wears down to bare wood, especially in high traffic areas like passages and staircases. So when getting quotes, enquire what sealers are being used and how many coats will be applied, as normally 3 coats is recommended to protect the floor properly for most sealers.

We can offer a variety of Water based Sealers and solvent sealers which may vary according to price.

 

Water Based vs. Solvent Based Sealers

 

Water Based Polyurethane


Environment  friendly- no fumes
Keeps the natural colour of your wood-does not darken or yellow over time.

Solvent Based Polyurethane

Cannot be buffed & coated in the future but rather re sanded and sealed from start.
