A hardwood floor can look stunning once it has been finished properly. But the real problem lies in choosing the right finish. You have two different finishes to choose from, but each has their own pros and cons. Moreover, one may appeal more to you than the other due to its life. You can either choose between a penetrating finish that sinks into the hardwood and needs to be dried using a protective barrier, or surface finish, which sits atop the wood and does not need a separate protective barrier. Not only can floor finishing and treatment experts help you make the right choice, they can perform the finishes for you, ensuring an even and long-life finish.
