straight talk about wood finishing

Topping off the floor

Q: It been about six years since I’ve had my hardwood floors installed. I want to apply a couple of coats waterbased polyurethane sealer to the floor but I’m not sure whether the installer used oil or water.
A: Several companies offer special waterbased floor finishing kits designed to go over any type of floor finish without having to sand. For example, Varathane makes a very good one called the Varathane Renewal Kit. http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=67
