Some floor coatings--polyure-thane, for example--can be difficult to coat over because a new oil-based finish won't adhere well. And, after receiving a lot of wear, it's hard to tell a polyurethane finish from more traditional ones like lacquer or varnish. Fortunately, many water-based products will adhere to just about any existing finish, so they're the best choice if you're unsure of what your old finish is.

Does it fix gaps in the floor boards?

The only way to truly fix gaps in floor boards is to replace the boards or the floor. Some gaps are naturally occurring from the shrinking and expanding of the home during different weather changes. These gaps should be left as is. Some floors we serviced have large gaps, and the owners love that look!

Mr.Sandless Franchise LLC Refinisher :If your old finish is merely scratched and dull, you can skip the sanding and go right to recoating the floor. The job should take only a couple of days, and, if you recoat the floor every three or four years, you may never need a complete refinishing job.

What exactly does Mr. SandlessTM do?

There are two types of traditional sanding. The first is a light sanding where they do the surface and put on a single coat of urethane. It takes 1-2 days and costs about $400 per room. This is also known as screen sanding, grit pad sanding, or re-coating. The 2nd is a full sand out, where they sand away 1/16th to an 1/8th of an inch off your floor and they put on a couple coats of urethane. It takes 4-7 days and costs about $900/room. Our service quality-wise falls right in the middle. We use a process very similar to sanding but with a special non-toxic solution. Then we seal the floor with our own brand of finish. It looks like urethane, lasts likes urethane, and you clean it like urethane. But unlike urethane there is no odor, and it dries in one hour. So we can literally seal your floor with multiple coats in just a few hours. This is why our floors look so good and last so long! Then you can walk right on your floor and put furniture down as soon as we are finished. Best of all, we are about half the price of sanding.

Wood finishing refers to the process of embellishing and/or protecting the surface of a wooden material. The process starts with surface preparation, either by sanding by hand (typically using a sanding block or power sander), scraping, or planing. Imperfections or nail holes on the surface may be filled using wood putty or pores may be filled using wood filler. Often, the wood's colour is changed by staining, bleaching, ammonia fuming and a number of other techniques. Some woods such as pine or cherry do not take stain evenly, resulting in "blotching". To avoid blotching, a barrier coat such as shellac or "wood conditioner" is applied before the stain. Gel stains are also used to avoid blotching

Mr.Sandless Franchise LLC Wood : Etymology

The word "varnish" comes from Latin vernix meaning odorous resin, the etymology of which comes from the Greek Berenice, the ancient name of modern Benghazi in Libya, where the first varnishes were used and where resins from the trees of now-vanished forests were sold. Berenice comes from the Greek words phero (to bring) + nike (victory).

Solid wood can be cut in three styles: flat-sawn, quarter-sawn, and rift-sawn. However, because only one side of the wood is visible on flooring, "quarter-sawn" and "rift-sawn" will have the same appearance.

Many solid woods come with "absorption strips" - grooves cut into the back of the wood that run the length of each plank. They are used to reduce cupping.

Solid wood floors are mostly manufactured with a tongue-and-groove for installatio
