Parquet Revival: Dark Stain & Waterbased Finish

The customers loved their parquet floor and only wanted to make it more relevant to the ccurrent deisgn trends.  We applied dark stain and opted for a low VOC water-based urethane as finish.  Water-based finishes ccost slightly more but the benefits largely out-weigh the cost.  With quicker drying times the coats can be applied closer together, however most customers only remark on the absence of the usual unpleasant odour assoiated with oil-based urethanes. 

Better for your environment by a long shot!

Did you remove the old stain by sanding or stripping or deglossing?
