Interior Stains and Clear Finishes

If you have hardwood floors, it is essential to find the right stains and finishes to enhance their beauty and keep them in top condition. At Aboff's Paints, we have a variety of hardwood finishes so you can find the perfect fit for your needs.

Minwax® Hardwood Stains

Minwax® Wood Finish™ is an unbeatable interior hardwood stain. It is a penetrating, oil-based stain that provides a rich color to enhance the natural wood grain. The product provides full coverage in just one coat, and it boasts a fast drying time of only two hours. It resists lapping for an even color, and it is available in many different shades.

In addition to hardwood floors, the stain can also be applied on unfinished wood cabinets, furniture, doors, molding and trim.

Why Use Polyurethane for Hardwood Floors?

Polyurethane is the most durable type of finish for hardwood floors. It resists scratches, spills, moisture and the wear and tear of everyday use. It is also easy to apply and maintain. Polyurethane finishes are available in different sheens and preserve the natural appearance of your wood.

Aboff's Paints carries high-quality polyurethane finishes, including Minwax® Fast-Drying Polyurethane and Old Masters polyurethane products for hardwood floors in oil-based and water-based options.

Tips for Refinishing Hardwood Floors

A refinished hardwood floor can breathe new life and beauty into a room. Keep these tips in mind to help you tackle your next refinishing project: 

  • Use abrasives carefully: The first step of refinishing your hardwood floor is to sand it down. When you select your abrasives, make sure to choose a grit that is coarse enough to remove the old finish and any surface scratches, but not so coarse that it damages the floor. Use abrasives that are gradually finer until you reach your desired smoothness.
  • Clean sanding debris thoroughly: Before you apply your new stain or finish, make sure to thoroughly clean all traces of debris from the floor and the room to prevent dust from mixing with your finish.
  • Apply stains evenly: Applying stain evenly is crucial for a beautiful finish free of lap marks. Use smaller brushes to apply stains and finishes in the corners of the room, and then use a roller to coat the rest of the floor to achieve a thin, even finish.
  • Follow product instructions: Steps may vary between brands, so make sure you follow the directions that come with the specific finish you are using.
