Many of you already know that I raise/breed dogs. I live in a bit old bungalow and my floors (whole house southern yellow pine) are now down to bare wood. I must refinish the floors and I need a super tough finish that will hopefully hold up to sandy soil, dog feet sanding off the finish and dog mess in general. I have found the Nano-shield but Rustoleum.
1. Is this still nano shield made by rustoleum? Or is it now Varathane Crystal Clear or is it Valspar? So confusing. Has anyone used the Nano-shield or whatever it is called now? And if so how was it to apply and does it really hold up to wear and tear? http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=413
2. Has any one used Bona hardwood floor finish? It appears they have a water based Bona, and a modified oil Bona that they claim is a same day application. Can anyone clarify this for me? “http://www.mybonahome.com/lines/floorpoly.html” :http://www.mybonahome.com/lines/floorpoly.html
3. Do you have to use the sealer step for the above products? Does it really make that much difference?
BTW I am not a bit concerned with not interested in specifically earth saving “green applications” (sorry if I offend) and I am open to suggestions of what to use for a finish on my floor. It must be fast drying, easy to apply, long lasting, and hard as hell. So please suggest anything / any product that might be appropriate for me to use.
PS I am going to have to do like 1/2 a room at a time because I have no where to store my giant heavy wood mission furniture! ugh!
Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have .
