Rhinebeck Wood Flooring Experts Reviews
The first coat of polyurethane looked pretty good. That was followed by light sanding 2 days later and a second coat of polyurethane. This second sanding and poly took about 1 hour, as did the subsequent coats.
The second coat developed many pin-point size bubbles as it dried. The next round of sanding removed the bubbles, but then the third coat also developed many bubbles. This was supposed to be the final coat, but I was unhappy with all the bubbles since they were very visible.
I talked with the owner and he came himself to have a look and agreed that it wasn't satisfactory. He sanded again and applied a fourth coat which was a huge improvement. I can't say it was absolutely 100% perfect, but you'd have to look very, very closely to see any defects.
The owner followed up with a phone call several days later to make sure I was satisfied.
The stain and polyurethane smell somewhat, but nowhere near as bad as the old oil-based materials. If you are sensitive to odors, I would recommend doing this in warmer weather when you can open windows in the rest of the house (although not in the room that is being refinished).
The refinished floor is a huge improvement over what it looked like before.
