Ebony Stained Hardwood Floors Details
This challenging yet rewarding project consisted of sanding and refinishing 3,300 square feet and a beautiful staircase. the goal was to weave together the new and old floors.
Hardwood Chosen: 2 1/4″ Red Oak
The project started with the installation of 2 1/4″-wide planks of red oak.
The homeowner chose red oak to match their existing floor. This red oak 2 1/4″ installation interweaves perfectly with the existing floor, ultimately providing a seamless hardwood floor throughout the whole house.
Next Decision: Ebony Stain for the Floors
Before sanding the floors, the next step was choosing the stain color.
When it came to selecting the floor’s color, the winner was Ebony. The Ebony color is stylish and classic, adding elegance to the ambiance of this new house with its bright spaces filled with light from floor-to-ceiling windows. The Ebony finish adds an interesting note to the house and lays the foundation for the homeowner’s decoration ideas.
Sanding to Prepare the Floors for the Dark Ebony Stain
After installing the new wood floors, Michigan Hardwood Floor Services started the dustless sanding process, then applied a full filler. Once the filler was sanded down, Victor Mulbauer prepared the floor for the dark ebony stain. This required water popping the floor, letting it dry properly, and then applying the stain.
Antimicrobial Finish and UV Light Curing
After applying the stain, Michigan Hardwood Floor Services treated the floor with Radcoat antimicrobial finish and cured with UV light.
Nonslip Finish for the Ebony Stained Stairs
For the stairs, the customer wanted a finish that would prevent slippage, and Victor Mulbauer recommended a finish with nonslip grip additives. One of the benefits of this finish is that not only does it provide exceptional durability and protection for hardwood floors, but it also meets the highest standards for slip resistance. This is because there is a higher coefficient of friction, therefore making it the ideal choice for stairs while also being VOC compliant.
