Refinishing Hardwood Floors in Cohasset, MA


This project was in a brand-new beautiful five-bedroom house where we refinished the hardwood floors in Cohasset, Massachusetts.  It’s right on the ocean and the owners have their own private beach too.

The house came with brand new rift sawn white oak floors installed. We sanded, stained and refinished them with a high-end finish system that will help delay the damaging effects of the sunlight streaming in through those huge windows.

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 floors. 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.

After sanding, the floor was water popped and the stain color the homeowners choose was Bona DriFast Stain in white. It gave the floor a very fresh, open and modern feel.

Here is the office (not sure how you could get any work done with that amazing view)…

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 like this floor.

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.

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 working in.
