About Our Flooring Oils and Varnishes
What is the difference between Oils and Varnish?
While an Oil deeply penetrates the wood, a Varnish remains on the outside of your surfaces, forming a protective barrier. The Varnish is usually clear and transparent, and it will harden along with the outer layer of your wood. Some Varnishes do include colour to enhance or alter the wood shade.
Over time, your Timber Flooring may start to lose the sheen and colour that it once had. This is very likely down to the fact that your floor needs refreshing and reviving with Oil. Oiling Wood Floors helps to enhance the overall appearance of its surface, as well as adding protection and nourishment.
Varnishes provide protective coatings for wood surfaces, paintings, and various decorative objects. Varnish protects and enhances the appearance of wooden floors, interior wood panelling and trim, and furniture. The early Varnishes were solutions of natural resins that are the secretions of plants.
