How Many Layers Of Polyurethane Should I Use When Refinishing My Wood Floors?


There is one very simple answer. When refinishing your hardwood floors it is recommended that you use 3 layers of polyurethane and 1 coat of sealer. The sealer seals up the wood and the 3 layers of polyurethane give you the guaranteed protection. You should also buff after the 1st and 2nd layer if needed.

What Is The Best Polyurethane To Use On My Hardwood Floors?

The best polyurethane's to use on your hardwood floors are water based commercial polyurethanes such as Bona, Loba, or Street Shoe. These finishes go on after the wood floors have been sanded. 


The polyurethane will leave the wood looking light and natural. If you want a color add a stain. Do not worry about which polyurethane is the best. Once you get up to the commercial level there all great products and it becomes a matter of opinion on behalf of the refinisher.

How Much Does It Cost To Refinish Hardwood Floors In New York, NYC, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx,
Staten Island, and Westchester County in 2020?

Hardwood floor refinishing cost will depend on the exact conditions of your hardwood floors. Most professional floor craftsman will need to see the floors before giving a price. This way they don't give you one price and than give you a significantly higher price after they are in your home or begin working.

The pricing will depend on the current stains, polyurethanes, waxes, or any other material that is on the floors. Some of these materials can take longer to sand off than others. Different machines and product amounts are used for different scenarios. Not all floors are the same.

Cost Of Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
There can be a very big range of pricing in the hardwood floor refinishing market. You have light refinishing or major refinishing (custom stain/bleaching/high end material/spot repairs/stairs/railings etc..) There is really no exact number you can rely as each situation is different. 

parquet hardwood floor refinishing and pricing


Parquet floors as seen in the picture above, is just one example of why your hardwood floor refinishing would cost more. This type of wood takes longer to sand than regular straight boards. Also, staining parquet floors take longer than regular straight board wood flooring. Does the parquet have damage, is loose, have gaps, and is evenly level? These are just some the things that go into pricing and time. 

Websites can never give out exact amounts for hardwood floor refinishing because there is none. You'll see such a huge range in wood floor pricing such as $3-$11 a square foot. But how can this help you? In the end, just be very clear to find out pricing with the wood floor refinishing company. Tell them if you are looking for a quick job without a lot of durability and the highest quality (or somewhere in between) or if you want the best service for your hardwood floors that is possible.

Can I Stain My Hardwood Floors White?

Yes, you can stain your hardwood floor's white. The whiteness will depend on the species of wood. But not all woods are created equal. Natural tones will mix in with the white stain. There is no wood the will give you a clear white color without bleaching.

White Bleach Wood Floors Refinishing


If you have a red oak wood flooring, the pink will show through with the white stain. If you have white oak the browns and yellow will show through the stain. If you want a true white, you will have to bleach the floors.

Bleaching it a long process and will significantly raise the price of your hardwood floor refinishing project. A lot of the time the natural tones mixing in with the white looks nice and doesn't bother the customer. Samples as always is best.

How Do I Need To Prepare My Home When Refinishing My Hardwood Floors?


All furniture should be removed from the room you plan where your having your hardwood floors refinished. This is because you will save a lot of money on not having to move the furniture back and forth. If you can't avoid furniture in the room when refinishing, there will be additional cost. 

The process of wood floor refinishing takes twice as long when you have belongings in the room. This is because you have to move everything to one side than to the other side and set up twice. Set up takes a long time with all the sanding machines and wiring. You can't move things around while you are refinishing your wood floors either because the machines are too big. The furniture will get damaged. You will be paying a big moving fee. 

If you are doing just a light sanding or refreshing the surface polyurethane, than your furniture can be in the room without a problem. As long as you have all the loose ends and the have the furniture emptied out (including electronics unplugged) the process will not have that much more time added to it.  This is because the machines are not that big and there is not as much drying time compared to when your fully sanding down the wood. You will be paying a moving fee, but not twice the price as you would with a full sanding.

Are My Hardwood Floors Thick Enough To Sand And Refinish?

If your wood floors are too thin they will sand right though and break when refinishing. There are a few methods to check if the hardwood floor boards are too thin.

Before you start checking for the thickness, find the tongue and groove and understand what that is. The tongue and groove is how the boards connect. You will see a wood groove or indentation in the wood boards (on the side and in the front). This is the tongue and groove of the hardwood board. The thickness of the wood is measured from from the top of the wood to where the tongue and groove starts.

After understanding what the tongue and groove is, one way to check the thickness is to look at the end or front of the wood boards (use a flashlight). You can find the ends or fronts by where the wood meets kitchen tile, meets the closets, any other rooms start, or around any saddles. Shine a flash light down into the gap and see if you can see the tongue and groove. If the there is a good enough space from where the tongue and groove starts and the top of the wood boards, your hardwood floors are thick enough to sand. You can also use a paper card of some sort to slide between the spaces. When the card hits the tongue and groove, you can mark the paper card to measure the thickness.

Another method to use to find the thickness of your hardwood floors, is to check between the sides of the floor boards. If you have gaps between the wood boards, shine the light between the gaps to find the tongue and groove. You can use the same method with the paper card to measure the thickness.
