I'm adding some new red oak flooring and refinishing the original red oak flooring that was sealed with oil based poly. We have dogs and need a tough, non toxic floor finish to replace the toxic oil polyurethane.
I'm adding some new red oak flooring and refinishing the original red oak flooring that was originally sealed with oil based poly. I am using the same contractor that installed the original floor. Once the new floor is laid and the original floor is sanded we want to stain both a darker shade than the original natural red oak finish.
I have large dogs and need a durable finish. Soooo, which stain/finish would you recommend, what kind of finish longevity can I expect, and what sheens are available? Additionally, I am concerned with VOCs, toxins and long-term VOC/toxin exposure in our home environment.
Is stain safe for babies? I built my own baby crib out of pine. I want to stain it and of course i want to to be baby safe. My wife wants it to have color as well.
I built my own baby crib out of pine. I want to stain it and of course i want to to be baby safe. My wife wants it to have color as well. I was looking at the bio poly with color. My questions are is the bio poly with color safe for a baby crib and does something else need to be applied before the bio poly of after the bio poly?
