This product worked excellent for us!
Recently bought a home with parquet flooring some of the bedrooms. Used this product, the sealer, & followed the directions exactly. The end result is a rock hard satin finish that is super durable. No harmful fumes and the product dried very quickly!

    Absolute Garbage
    Husband and I used 3 coats of this, and within DAYS the floor looked like this. Yes, we have a dog, but she's doesn't just sit and scratch the floor. Super excited to resand 500 square feet just to try to get the floor to not be solid white with scratches.

    Let's talk about this! To ensure a durable finish with Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Water-Based Polyurethane for Floors, it is essential that enough product is applied to the surface. Each gallon has a recommended coverage of 600-700 square feet with a single coat and a minimum of 3 coats are needed.

      Ruined my project
      Five years ago when I moved into my home, I applied 3-4 coats of Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Crystal Clear Satin Water-Based Polyurethane to my newly sanded floors. I absolutely loved the finish (satin) and how the entire floor came out. The product was not as durable as I had hoped and recently, I decided to refresh the look of the floors to cover some of the surface scratches, but didn't want to re-sand the entire floor again. The first container left the floor looking exactly the same as when I did it 5 years ago. The second half of the floor, where I applied product from a new container (identical product - satin finish), dried to a semi-gloss sheen. Not the what the label read. So now my floor has two finishes using the same exact product (different containers). The finish on this product varies from container to container regardless of the labeling. My project is ruin and now I will have to sand the entire floor to get rid of the semi-gloss sheen and start from scratch. I will definitely NOT be using this product again.

      We appreciate your feedback! To ensure the proper sheen, Rust-Oleum Parks Pro Finisher Water-Based Polyurethane for Floors needs to be stirred thoroughly before each use and often during your application. This prevents the flatting agents from settling at the bottom of the can.

        I did a bit of research before getting this product, and it didn't disappoint. I have a natural oak floor that I wanted to just put a clear poly on top of because I liked the color as it was. Obviously, there was a slight color change with the poly on top, but there was no yellowing at all. Also, I couldn't believe how fast this dried- I was able to put 4 complete coats on a 200 sq foot area between 9am-3pm. It looks awesome, and I would totally use this product again in the future. I used the water wiz synthetic applicator (also from Home Depot) instead of lambskin.

          I read all the reviews after I purchased it. I found that when you own a store, people who follow reviewers sometimes lead some people away for their own reason: and that is just wrong. I rented a hard floor scrubber and went over the wood plank flooring and it cleaned it up really good, so good that it would be foolish not to polyurethane it while it was so clean. I did not sand at all, not before, not between coats. It does have a slight odor, dries very fast, and if you don't have good lighting and take less than a minute break - you won't find where you left off. I put 4 coats on the stairs and wood plank flooring in the store, over a previously 13 year coat of a water based Polyurethane (probably Parks) that was worn off. I was happy with that length of time. I was not looking for perfection, just protection - we will see how it holds up again~

            I have a really beat up floor that I am re-finishing. After sanding and cleaning, I have applied 3 coats of this Polyurethane (after sealing with the Pro-Sealer). I find you need to work very quickly. This Poly dries fast like it says. Oder is fairly minimal as compared to oil based Polys. After laying down my 3 coats, the finish is a little rough (like little bits of sand). For my final coat, I will sand down the floor with a fine grit, before applying the final coat. I am hoping that this leaves a nice smooth finish. I am using a semi-gloss finish, so the floor isn't too slippery (it's a kitchen). The photo I have attached is immediately after applying the 3rd coat, so it's still a little wet, and shinier than it will be once it dries. Overall, an easy product to work with. I poured the finisher on the floor, spread around with a brush, then smoothed with a lamb's wool applicator. Tools clean up with water. But I can't emphasize the need to work quickly. I think that the slightly sand paper finish I have is due to me overworking it creating bubbles as it was drying. The time from pouring on the floor until stopping smoothing with the applicator was about 5 minutes per section. (You need to work in small sections as this will dry too fast to do too much at once). I am confidant that once I sand it smooth before applying the last coat, I will be able to put a liberal finish down that will dry nice and smooth. Since my floor was in such tough shape to start with (2 layers of sub floor and linoleum had to be removed) peppered with nail and staple holes, I'm not overly concerned about a smooth as glass finish. I just don't want it to be rough like sandpaper.

            worst product ive ever used
            Have attempted to use 3 different times after everyone I know who builds cornhole boards loves it/lives by it/always recommends it. All three times it has been complete crap. Big chunks of it coming out and just totally worthless. Have wasted over $120.00 on this crap and will never recommend it in my life

            That is not what we like to hear! There should not be chunks in the coating, and we need to know more about the issues described to get to the bottom of this. Please give us a call at 800-901-0411, we want to try to make things right! - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2 Rustoleum
