Hardwood Floor Refinishing Project in Cohasset MA
We really enjoyed working on this hardwood floor sanding project in Cohasset Massachusetts. It was a brand new house right on the water’s edge. The owners have their own private beach too. With the summer sun shining in through those big windows, the amazing views over the water and a private beach to enjoy, it was very hard to stay inside and concentrate on getting this project done… but we managed.

The wood floors are 3 inch wide rift sawn white oak. One of our favorite flooring materials. Rift sawn floors provide a very consistent grain pattern and look great stained as you can see above.
The entire multi-level house had these installed, apart from the bathrooms. All up there was close to 4,800 square feet of wood flooring installed in the kitchen, dining and living rooms, the 5 bedrooms and the home gym and play room.
The owner had the hardwood floors installed by another flooring contractor prior to our arrival. Our part of the project included the hardwood floor sanding (we used our dustless sanding equipment), hardwood floor staining and hardwood refinishing and applying the floor coatings. Because it was a brand new install, there were no hardwood floor repairs needed.

Here are the refinished wood floors in the office (not sure how you could get any work done with that amazing view looking out to the bay…
And these are the hardwood floors installed and the floor sanding and refinishing completed in one of the 5 bedrooms…
After the sanding and refinishing, the floor was water popped, ready for the hardwood floor staining application. We applied Bona DriFast Stain in white. It gave the floor a very fresh, open and modern feel.
The floor was coated with Bona Traffic HD in a satin sheen. It’s a very durable hardwood floor finish with very low VOC levels (about 150 grams) and has excellent scratch and chemical and spill resistance. Especially important when used in kitchen settings for these types of floors.
One of the other huge benefits to this finish is it has built in UV inhibitors. As you can see this house has a lot of large floor to ceiling windows. They let in a lot of sunlight all throughout the year. Over time, the ultra-violet light will change the color of wood floors that are constantly exposed like this. Oil based finishes are especially prone to this and will change color very quickly. The Bona Traffic HD product used here will delay this natural occurrence far better than most traditional finish systems. It's one of the best floor coatings on the market.
This project was completed within a week. We wished we could have been here longer as it was one of the nicest settings we’ve had the privilege of sanding and refinishing a hardwood floor in.
