Polyurethane Floor Finishes
Polyurethane is the most hard wearing product and is more resistant to scratches and dents. Finishes can be matte, low sheen, satin and gloss.
Moisture Cured Polyurethane
Moisture-cured polyurethane is the most common product used by most floor sanding companies. It is hard wearing and more resilient. Finishes can be low sheen, satin and gloss
Waterborne polyurethane has more of a natural finish where it enhances the wood. This has a much more natural appearance and almost no smell.
Types of Finishes
Lo Sheen has a softer look and does not highlight faults in old floorboards as a gloss finish would.
Like the low sheen finish, Satin does not highlight faults in old floorboards. Satin does have an element of gloss 30%.
Gloss is an attractive finish however needs more care than satin or low sheen finish.
A natural look that enhances the floor but does require more upkeep than polyurethane.
Traditionally staining is a method used to darken timber floors. A range of colours can be achieved to suit your individual tastes and requirements.
Blonding is a method of lightening solid-wood floor boards. This creates a lighter, more modern look, turning traditional Villas into modern spaces. We are very experienced in working with New Zealand native timbers reducing the depth of colour while maintaining the grain.
