Finished Wood Flooring
Color Divine Painting can revive your finished wood flooring to its former glory and expertly remove years of damage. New York City apartments require your flooring contractor to submit an insurance certificate before the work begins. More information on this insurance and how to obtain it can be found on New York City’s Contractor page. We serve our customers across the five boroughs – Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island, including Long Island.
Our experts will survey your floors and provide an estimate for the work. After sanding the old wood, our Refinisher will show light to dark wood stain samples. For example, Modern furniture and decor complement light or dark floors. Traditional, classic furniture pairs well with medium to dark stains.
Old wood sometimes develops unsightly grain, making the wood boards inconsistent in color and texture. Using a dark stain will diminish these flaws. A newer floor with consistent boards will benefit from a high-quality clear or natural lacquer to create light, modern flooring.
Using the Proper Wood Finish
Our contractor will suggest the best finish for your wood. Oil-based polyurethane finish leaves a remarkably durable coat. The oil-based finish carries strong fumes that can disturb you or your neighbors, so proceed with caution and let others know when your project will start. An oil-based finish takes three coats and over 24hrs to dry between each one. It is dependant on the weather, and humidity prolongs the drying process.
Water-based polyurethane is non-toxic, so it’s a win for the environment and the health of you and your neighbors. It dries within hours and creates minimal fumes. Choose a high-gloss, semi-gloss, or luxurious satin finish. Glossier surfaces, however, will expose more dents and scratches in the original wood floor and over time.
The quality of our other interior work speaks for itself and you can expect the same expert level of care and focus on your wood floors.
