Sealing & Varnishing
Varnish or Lacquer
More durable than oil sealants, and easier to maintain, these products are typically used for mid to heavy traffic areas.
Modern lacquers (Bona and Junckers) no longer produce the ‘plastic’ look of old and offer a silky sheen in a matt, satin or high gloss finish.
Our recommended finish would be a polyurethane lacquer – highly resistant to wear but which may create some discoloration to the floor beneath.
As it is not a natural material, it can restrict the breathing ability of your wooden floor.
For areas experiencing lighter usage, a part polyurethane/part acrylic floor sanding and varnishing might be preferable. This will not yellow or darken the wood in any way.
For lacquered/varnished floors, we would always recommend three applications
They dry within 1-3 hours and fully cure in 12-72 hours.
