Green Alternative to Poly for your hardwood flooring

Just finishing up a multiple room floor refinish. Flooring is finished with a single coat of a natural Zero VOC product called Monocoat. Application is simple and fast, and the results are beautiful.

    Only one coat? The floors are beautiful. I am getting ready to redo my wood floors and have always put on two coats. One coat would be wonderful. How are you suppose to clean the finish? And do the floors change any in the color when you use the finish?

  • Thanks, Kevin- I'd rather take more time than accidentally sand myself into the basement! :)

    we are painting the house now, we plan on re-doing our floors after Christmas and plan on trying this. Does it come in eggshell, satin, semi-gloss and gloss?
