Unfinished red oak...help me maintain light shade when we seal?
I am looking at unfinished red oak flooring to be finished on site. Unfinished, it is nice and light, not red or pink at all. What type of sealant(oil, wax, polish, lacquer) can you reccomend that would help it to keep that natural light color. I really want them to be as light as they are unfinished. I keep reading that when ppl put a sealer on, they get darker or more red in tone...that is not what I want. I also notice that the prefinished board samples I have seen are darker than the unfinished boards...
I would also love a finish that is easy to maintain and repair.
Any ideas? Thanks!
