Oil Based Floor Finishes
Unfinished hardwood floors require sealing and finishing after they’ve been installed and sanded. This is where oil-based sealers, water-based sealers, and water-based finishes, as well as other floor prep products, prove their value.
Oil-based finishes are meant to ensure durability, resistance to staining, scratching, and other types of floor damage. They are known for containing 45-50% solids, which offers a more protective finish than water-based products. Also, they are less expensive and require less maintenance over time. Oil-based finishes leave an amber glow and require fewer coats than water-based polyurethane.

What are the differences between water-based and oil-based polyurethane? Both oil- and water-based polyurethane are like a coat of armor for the hardwood floor below, protecting the wood from damage. Oil-based finish is thicker than water-based finishes, meaning oil-based poly is more durable and lasts longer than the water-based alternative. More than that, oil-based finish is easier to apply, provides a natural finish, and gives a glossier, shinier appearance. Still, oil-based polyurethane takes longer to dry and cure, and only one coat of oil-based poly can be applied to a hardwood floor in 24 hours.
