Which coating? - The options for coatings range from solvent based polyurethanes, through to water based finished and oil based finished.
It all depends on the type of floor installed, the locality of the house and climate.
Traditional oil based finished used with waxes do not work well with acrylics and darken over time.
Solvent based polyurethanes tend to be more wear resistant and come in a wide range of gloss variations.
Water based finishes are hard wearing and can provide a subdued appearance and range in gloss variations.
It is important to note that irrespective of the finish type and whether applied at installation or factory scratches can occur.
It is recommended a newly coated floor is left as long as possible (approx 1 week) before residents move in to ensure suitable hardening.
