The flooring is brought into the home for a few days so it can acclimate to the temperature and humidity of the home. This helps to keep the flooring from expanding and contracting during installation.

Getting so pretty!

The first coat isn’t very shiny. Each coat gets better and better.

We apply 3 coats of polyurethane to  the floor. The floor is sanded between each coat , This makes the floor shine like glass.
