Types of Finishes For Hardwood Flooring

Types of Finishes For Hardwood Flooring San Marcos

Water-Based Polyurethane

Water-based polyurethane is arguably the most chosen finish for hardwood flooring Los Angeles. It provides a smooth, shining finish that gives the traditional hardwood floor look. Most polyurethane finishes are glossy, though they can also be semigloss and satin in finish. Most flooring of this type is factory-finished, making installation a breeze. In addition, the high-sheen finish is easy to clean, but can make scratches stand out.

Aluminum Oxide

Aluminum Oxide is the most durable of finishes, and can last over 20 years. It is mostly used on pre-finished hardwood flooring that has thinner than usual planks. This means that while the finish lasts a long time, it shouldn’t be sanded and refinished. The upside to aluminum oxide flooring is that it is easy and quick to install.

Oil Sealer

Oil sealer finish enhances the grain of the wood and bring out its natural color. It is best for a low-gloss finish, and is ideal for antique homes. However, this finish is not as durable as  polyurethane, and usually needs to be reapplied every few years.
