Different Types of Floor Finishes

, , Comment closed


I have learned today that there are three types of finishes. First is the coalescing which is water based finishes. Second is the evaporative finishes that dissolve into the air. It dissolves in turpentine and the petroleum extracts to create and form a soft paste. Third is the reactive. It is when Oil finishes and linseed oil are reactive finishes which means they change chemically when they cure, unlike evaporative finishes.

Consider your lifestyle and maintenance inclinations. All wood floors will require repetitive preservation, such as sweeping or dust mopping, to keep them looking beautiful and new, it will have big effect on how you handle the floor with care in long term matter if you used different wood flooring finishes. It can affect the look of the floor in the future as there are cheaper and expensive. It is up to you how you would like to finish your flooring.

These finishes most often are referred to as urethanes or polyurethanes, and it will endure on the surface of the wood to form a protective covering. There are several types of surface finishes available: water-based, oil-based, acid-cured, and moisture-cured.
