Engineered Hardwood vs. Solid Hardwood

When you’re looking for a new wood floor, do you really know what you’re looking at? Many people choose something aesthetically pleasing; but what are you actually choosing for your home?

Many times there is a negative connotation about engineered hardwood flooring, people think that it’s a lesser product because it’s not solid; well, I’m here to set the record straight!

Oil-Based Finish vs Water-Based Finish http://www.happyfloors.com/hardwood-laminate-vinyl-flooring-blog/entry/oil-based-finish-vs-water-based-finish.html http://www.happyfloors.com/hardwood-laminate-vinyl-flooring-blog/entry/oil-based-finish-vs-water-based-finish.html

 One of the most common question we hear from people planning on refinishing their floors is what finish should we choose, oil-based or water-based. This article will provide you with some information which might help you to pick one of them.

 Oil-based finishes.

In most of the cases oil-based finishes made out polyurethane resin, mineral spirits, silica and other ingredients depending on unique techniques of different manufacturers.  Some of these ingredients have unpleasant odor.  This odor usually stays in house for 2-5 days depending on material, ventilation, heating conditions and etc. Oil-based finish also needs more time to cure; it’s pretty soft for about 15 hours. In most of the cases, you can walk on a finished floor (only in socks) one day after finish is applied. As for the heavy furniture, you should let polyurethane to dry up for a week before bringing it in. Light tables, chairs and small furniture can be brought in earlier, but it’s not recommended. Rugs are not allowed to go in for another month, because it might block odors and volatilization
