Spot on

Q: Can no-sand floor renewal finish systems fill in worn spots on a baked on factory finish?
A: Yes, they are made to go over any finish. However, the problem with worn spots is that they may or may not look the same. Many, but not all, finishes, both commercial and industrial, add amber to the wood. The refinishing kits are typically waterbased and do not add any color to wood. Thus, the bare spots may come out a slightly different color than those areas with original finish. It all depends on whether the original finish was slightly amber or water clear.
