What Are The Most Durable Hardwood Flooring Finishes?

Hardwood flooring is one of the most attractive aspects of a home to potential buyers. It is a timeless addition to any beautiful home. They are very easy to keep clean and one of the hardest floors to damage. Typical home traffic damage to hardwood flooring is easily and inexpensively fixed. At Advanced Flooring Solutions of Woodstock, GA we have installed many floors. We have repeat customers call us ten years after flooring installation to refinish the hardwood floors. This will ensure beautiful flooring for another ten years for our return clients. One way to ensure your floors last for years to come is by applying a finish that is extremely durable and stands up to the toughest of family and commercial foot traffic. Bowling Alley Hardwood Flooring Finish

Commercial Grade Hardwood Flooring Finishes

The most durable products on the markets are applied to bowling alleys and basketball courts. They are not safe to apply yourself and should be administered by trained professionals. This is due to the toxic fumes emitted by the finish. These water based finishes (DuraSeal 2000) are best suited for commercial applications and light wood colors. They have a light blue hue to them over time. If you are building a new home and have the time to wait, Swedish finishes are just as strong. The only down side is the emit urea formaldehyde fumes for up to 90 days. The best of both worlds is oil modified polyurethane finishes. They emit less fumes and still have a very durable finish. 3 to 4 coats of said product will ensure many years of beautiful flooring that can take extensive residential or commercial traffic. The finish can also be screened and recoated in the future to brighten and restore the surface.
