Water Based Polyurethane
Water-based polyurethane finishes are one of the most popular options when it comes to any type of hardwood flooring installation. Providing you with the smooth, wet look that can give even engineered hardwood the most beautiful aesthetic. This option comes in both satin and glossy finish, giving you a range of different appearances to choose from and ensuring that you can personalize your floors to your particular needs. If you have a home with pets, they can be important to keep in mind that scratches and chips to this particular surface finish can tend to stand out more than other options.
Though oil sealer tends to be the finish of choice when it comes to delivering the application to your hardwood floors yourself, you can count on our wood floor contractors to provide you with this particular option as well. This finish choice can provide you with a higher level of affordability, though it must be kept in mind that choosing this type of wood finish requires reapplication every 3 to 5 years. Weighing the cost benefit against the longevity of this wood finish is something that you will have to consider when choosing your own particular wood finish type.
Hard-wax oil provides you with simplicity, a warm and beautiful finish and one of the treatment options that will deliver the most natural and traditional appearance. Though, much like any other oil finish, you will find yourself needing reapplication every few years, this particular choice typically falls under a biannual treatment requirement. The trade-off though, is that you have a high level of aesthetic appeal and a lower overall cost of service, which can be a deciding factor for your choice in finish. Whatever the application you choose to go with, you can depend on our wood floor contractors to deliver quality.
If you are choosing to go with an exotic hardwood option for your San Antonio flooring, the added layer of strength and durability that acid curing provides to this wood species can be the highest benefit. This particular process is also known as Swedish finishing and can bring you one of the strongest surface options out of any finish type. A factor to keep in mind though, is the hazard that comes with fumes from this particular treatment, requiring scheduling and planning around a point in time in which you can relocate while the curing takes place in order to maintain safety.
