Which is better, oil-based or water-based finish?

There are pros and cons to both types of finishes. Oil-based finishes are both highly durable and affordable, but have a pretty strong smell and need 8-12 hours to dry, so they are less accommodating to a tight schedule. Water-based finishes have a quick dry time, so 3 coats can be applied in one day and the floors can be walked on 3-4 hours after the final coat is applied. But, these finishes are not as durable, so in high traffic areas like kitchens and foyers, although it is a bit more expensive, commercial grade water-based finish is recommended.

Do oil-based and water-based finishes look the same?

No. Oil-based finishes have a slight amber look to them, and water-based finishes are completely clear.

How long does it normally take to sand and refinish a floor?

It really depends on what type of finish is chosen and how big the job is, but the average job takes between 2-4 days. One room can be done in a day if coated with water-based finish.

Matte, satin, semi-gloss, or gloss; Which is Best?

These options are typically just of personal preference, but satin is the most popular. It still has a slight shine to it, but any scratches that may occur are less noticable than on semi-gloss or gloss finishes.

How does the dustless system work?

A dustless system is just a giant and very powerful vacuum. We connect hoses from our system up to the sanders, and while we are sanding the floor, the wood dust is sucked through the sanders and into the system.

Can you sand and refinish a prefinished wood floor?

If the flooring is solid hardwood, yes. Some engineered prefinished floors are sandable, but it is not recommended because they are usually too thin.

Frequently Asked Questions



Oil based finishes have a rich look to them that really bring out the natural beauty of the wood. These finishes have an 8-12 hour drying time and take 2 weeks to fully cure/harden, but the richness and durability just might be worth the wait. ​

Water based finishes are available in Residential and Commercial grade; they are eco-friendly, and have a low odor so you will not get overwhelmed by harmful vapors while we are completing our project in your home. These finishes are also quick drying so there will never be longer than a 3 hour period of time when the floors cannot be walked on; it also only takes 7 days to fully cure/harden. So if you are on a tight schedule, and need the floors to be refinished and ready to use immediately, or you are sensitive to strong smelling chemicals, water based is the way to go.
