Payment for Large Commercial Jobs

I am a general contractor with three large commercial buildings with approximately 150,000sq ft that need new floors. I can’t put down a deposit but I can pay you every 90 days for the work completed. Can you come and see it?

Of course I could come and see it. A jobs of this size would require a deposit before any work could begin, and paying on a 90 day scale is too long. Unless we can negotiate, I wish you luck with your buildings.

New Floors Need to Settle Before Scraping

I renovated my house two months ago. I hired a flooring company to repair holes and add a section of wood floors where a wall used to be. The floors were scraped, and applied with layers of lacquer. Now, the areas that were replaced have started to rise. The floor company used glue and nails and assured me that it was done correctly. What happened?

It seems to me that the replaced floor was not given a minimum of one month to settle before it was scraped lacquered. The nature of wood is to shift and settle which can take approximately three to six weeks.

MonoCoat Oil Plus

I have a 500sq ft apartment in Manhattan, NY that needs the floor replaced. Can you use oil instead of lacquer? If so, what oil do you recommend?

Of course. So far-the best lacquer we have used is MonoCoat Oil plus, which also comes in a variety of colors.

Water Based Lacquer for Braizilian Walnut Floors

Please give me some advice. I hired a flooring company to scrape my Brazilian walnut floor twice. The first time the lacquer took a week to dry and the floor looked ugly. The second time had the same results. Maybe there is something wrong with the wood?

It seems to me that the wood is all right. You did not describe what kind of lacquer was used-but I think that was polyurethane. It takes longer to dry, and causes yellowing to occur to the wood. Unfortunately you have to scrape again and I suggest three coats of a water based lacquer.

The Importance of Primer

Do I have to put the primer on before I use the underlayment material?

Of course you must put the primer on first otherwise all underlayment material will crack.

Prefnished vs Unfinished Wood Floor

Is prefinished or unfinished parquet better? What would you choose?

Prefinished floor is painted at the factory and does not look natural. Unfinished parquet is a material that is scraped and lacquered after installation. You must choose the parquet that fits your life style and budget.

High Gloss vs Satin

Is it true that high gloss is harder than satin finish?

That is absolutely not true. The most important is the brand of lacquer used. More expensive lacquers give better quality, but the finish is just a matter of taste.

Sandy Surface After Scraping an Oak Floor

I hired a hardwood floor company to scrape my oak floor. I’m not happy from the final effect. I see the hollows everywhere and the surface looks like there is sand so it is not smooth. They said that this is normal.

After a good scraping the floors should look very smooth. I think you need another scraping.
