We will never buy this product again or recommend it to anyone. My husband followed all the directions and we waited a full 7 days for it to cure. Our floors will have to be redone again. There are scuff marks and scratches all over the floor. We don't wear shoes in the house and have felt furniture movers under every single piece of furniture. Very disappiinted! We'd give it "0" stars if we were allowed.

About 18 months ago I did 4 projects in my little bungalow with this product. The oak floor in the living room was badly discolored even after sanding so I was forced to stain it dark. I used Minwax Jacobean oil base stain and waited about 5 days before applying the Pro Polyurethane. Over the course of 2 days I put down 7 coats. I know that lots of coats but it was quick and easy to apply. There was no need to sand after the first coat with the oil base stain. The product is very forgiving. Just be sure to keep a wet edge. I edged with a brush and used a pad applicator. Sanded and applied Pro in the upstairs bedroom to a mixed hardwood floor. No stain so it was necessary to sand after first coat. Put down 7 coats again. The oak stair treads going upstairs had been finished with oil base urethane several years before (by a previous owner). The finish was worn and paint splattered. I cleaned up the paint, lightly hand sanded the surfaces, installed one new tread, applied an oil based stain I mixed using a couple different Minwax colors to match the existing amber look on the new tread and the worn spots on the others. Seven coats again. I made the trim and stair rail parts for the upstairs bedroom from douglas fir and used knotty pine doors. Again I used my amber color oil stain and applied 4 coats of pro about 5 days later. I achieved great results on all of these projects. After 18 months there are no signs of wear or scratching in the heavy traffic areas. The only reason I don't give this product a 5 is because I have noticed some scuffing. They look like something I could probably rub out but I don't know. My dog, 9 lbs, chases her toy across the living room hardwood floor sliding around. No scratches. I used satin so maybe scratches that other reviewers complain about are with a glossier finish, don't know. I'm happy with my results after 18 months of use.

After sanding down my entire house I applied 3 coats of this product. It has not even been 3 months and there scratches and worn down patches everywhere. If it was not for the sale of my house currently I would be demanding my money back and still am extremely dissatisfied with this product!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homefixer18 Water-based polyurethane better than oil based.
Almost no odor. Dries super fast and looks beautiful! . Had never refinished hardwood floors before. Followed recommendation to use oil based poly...BIG mistake!! The fumes were horrendous and made us sick. Even after the floor had dried, the smell was horrible. We applied the water based over the dried oil based. It dried within an hour and locked in the stench of the oil based application. Was able to apply 5 coats of water based within 5 hours because it dries so quickly. And I love the look of my floors now...they look warm and soft and natural rather than having the orange glow that was left when the oil based finally dried. I will never use oil based poly again when refinishing my remaining hardwood floors. Loved this product!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pabloesguapo Excellent... So far.
Excellent spreadability. Very easy to feather. Dried quickly. No odors. Color dries clearer than oil based polyurethane, which gives a yellowish hue.
Upon application, this product is 1,000% better than the oil based products.
I have read the other reviews, and it seems like durability is the major downside to most people. We'll see. I applied 3 coats in one afternoon. I will give it proper curing time, move in and usage time. Then I will update.

We stained the floor, applied two coats of this product, lightly sanded due to the grain raising, and then applied two more coats. The product description says that only two coats are needed but even four coats wasn't enough. One week out there are so many scratches I can't count them. We haven't even moved the furniture in yet. Another reviewer said he was pleased after applying 16 coats. You shouldn't have to apply that many coats. I can't imagine how much time and money it cost them. There are also dull patches all over that weren't there at first. It makes me sick to think I spent that much time and it was all for nothing. Now I have to find a better product and start all over. Don't waste your time and money.
