Is Water-Based Polyurethane Good For Floors?

Water-based polyurethane coatings can be used to enhance the lifespan of any wooden item, and that includes flooring. In fact, you could use polyurethane for non-wooden floors as well. Water-based polyurethanes are the most common choice for floor jobs, and there are two primary reasons for that fact.

First, water-based coatings will usually dry faster than their oil-based counterparts. When doing floors, the dry time is a real inconvenience because it cuts off access to entire areas of your home. Thus, a shorter drying time is really helpful. As a second upside, polyurethane coatings have a lighter appearance that will not alter the color or grain of the wood.
