Wood Floor Finishing Options

Below we have listed the main wood floor finishes that we offer. After years of finishing floors we’ve tried nearly every wood finish on the market and determined those that offer the best in visual appeal, durability + longevity. In addition to the finish products we’ve listed below we’re also experienced with many other products so we’re always happy to use a specific product for those that have a presence. Some other products that we occasionally use include; Waterlox, WOCA, Poloplaz, Ciranova, Blanchon, Bona Traffic, Bona Nordic Seal, paste waxes + many more.


Contractors that offer lower prices are likely not be using comparable finishes. ?  Be sure you’re making an apples to apples comparison when comparing our bids with competitors, because sub-par products are far cheaper to buy and this can cause our bids to be higher than those using these products.  A quality finish is very important as it can make floors last 10 years+ longer than cheaper alternatives.
