You have to do a light sand & apply finish & it's called screen & coat. If it's pre-finished wood & the bevel is a little bit deeper, you have a higher tendency of the new finish peeling off in that beveled area. If the floor is finished on site, a simple screen & coat is all you need. Nano finish is supposed to be stronger & a lot of finishes have Nano added. But at the same time you lose the clarity of the finish (looks more milky).remmuh wrote: ↑Aug 31st, 2009 2:01 pmHi,
I just moved into a place with hardwood in all rooms except the kitchen.
I would like to maybe put a protective layer of varnish on the floors before I move in, as this would probably be the best time to do it.
My question is, if the floor is already finished, would I need to lightly sand it first?
I've been looking at products and what is the difference between Minwax and Varathane floor finishes?
Do they make a difference?
Is Varathane Nano Defence worth it?
Or maybe there is another alternative which would work better?
Thanks in advance.
