Q: Will My hardwood floor have a table top finish?
A: Each piece of hardwood flooring sands differently depending on its grain type (plain or quartered) making it virtually impossible for a completely flat surface.
Q: Will I have a dust free finish?
A: Since your hardwood floor is being finished in your home it is not possible to achieve a clean room environment. Some dust will fall into your freshly applied finish.
Q: Will the hardwood be uniform throughout the floor?
A: Wood as a natural product varies from piece to piece. Remember it is not fabricated. It is milled from a tree and will have grain and color variations consistent with the grade and species of hardwood flooring selected.
Q: Will my hardwood floor be dent resistant?
A: In spite of the term Hardwood, hardwood flooring will indent under the heel traffic (especially heels in disrepair). The finish applied will not prevent dents.
Q: Will my hardwood floor get cracks between boards?
A: Although your new floor may start tight together, as a natural product it will continue to absorb and release moisture. This is a natural process and will cause the flooring to expand and contract from season to season resulting in cracks between some of the pieces in your floor. Some stain colors will show or hide this process more than others.
