How to Fix? Wood floors faded during 7 month remodel!
Need Help! We are at the end of our remodel. One coat of semi-gloss polyeurethane was applied 7 months ago. We are now ready for the 2nd & 3rd coats. So we took up the paper that we had down for construction, and was surprised to see that where the paper was is lighter than the uncovered areas, & you can see the lines of where the paper was! We had all the windows covered TOTALLY with plastic, so that sunlight would NOT hit the floors!
We have a combination of unstained pine floors (original to the house) and 3 rooms of newly installed red oak hardwood. The fading seems to be just on the pine floors (before we bought the house the pine floors were covered with carpet).
Does anyone know if the screening, that will be done before the 2nd and 3rd coats of polyeurethane are applied, will help lessen the fading lines?
If not, is satin finish or a semi-gloss finish better for lessening the look of faded spots? ...Please Help!
