Problems staining Hickory?? Anyone hear this?
We have installed Hickory flooring thru out the home that we are building. My husbands wants to leave the floor unstained and I am leaning toward staining it to tone it down a bit.
He was told by someone that works in the Stairing industry that site finished hickory will have issues. He says that someone he knows had their hickory site finished and the stain didn't adhere to the floor and caused issues with the polyurethane finish. That doesn't make sense to me.
However, I have added stain to a couple of small areas and it did not seem to absorb very well.
If you have site finished can you please share your experience?
