WOOD FLOORING FINISH TYPES

Surface Finish Moisture Cured
When choosing the right type of finish for your wood floors, it is important that you consider your lifestyle and maintenance preferences. All wood floors will require minimal routine maintenance, such as sweeping or dust mopping, to keep them looking beautiful and new, but different wood flooring finishes will have a big impact on how you care for your floor long-term, as well as how your floor will look in the years to come.
Surface finishes are very popular because they are durable, water-resistant and require minimal maintenance. Surface finishes are blends of synthetic resins. These finishes most often are referred to as urethanes or polyurethanes, and remain on the surface of the wood to form a protective coating. There are several types of surface finishes available.
- Water-based finishes appear clear and will resist turning yellow, or ambering, over time. They have a mild odor when applied, and are fast drying. Water-based finishes are very durable.
- Oil-based finishes appear amber in color. They have a moderate odor when applied, and are slow drying. Oil-based finishes are very durable.
- Conversion varnish finishes appear clear to slightly amber. They have a very strong odor when applied, and will dry fast. Conversion varnish finishes are extremely durable.
- Moisture-cured finishes appear clear to amber. They have a strong odor when applied, and will dry slow or fast depending on humidity. Moisture-cured finishes are extremely durable and are more moisture-resistant than other surface finishes.
To maintain a surface finish floor, simply use the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning product, avoiding wax-based products and petroleum-based cleaners.
WOOD FLOORING FINISH SHEENS
- Three different finish sheens are available for wood floors: gloss, satin, and matte. Each sheen has a different level of shine and luster, which will impact the final appearance of your floor.
- Gloss finishes offer the most shine, and will reflect the most light. This finish also is sometimes referred to as semi-gloss.
- Satin finishes offer some shine, and will reflect some light.
- Matte finishes offer the least shine, and will reflect the least light. This finish also is sometimes referred to as flat.
