Polyurethane for Wood Floors: Oil vs. Water-Base

Depending on your specific needs, you may choose water or oil-based polyurethane when refinishing your wood floors. There are several important factors to consider before choosing one type over the other.

Oil Base Polyurethanes:

  1. Initially, has a strong odor when drying
  2. More durable and last longer; bonds with the wood grain
  3. More economical because the product costs less
  4. Has a natural honey tone
  5. Will yellow over time
  6. Longer dry times

Water-based Polyurethane

  1. Lower odor when drying
  2. Less Durable; raises the wood grain – may need to refinish the job sooner
  3. Product costs more
  4. Keeps wood looking lighter in tone
  5. Less yellowing effect
  6. Dries faster for accessibility
