Avatar 18/02/2018 22:37 <086> odd country name i forget
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:36 <086> no
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:36 <biz> Russians maybe?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:36 <086> a crew of two that were fresh off the european boat did it
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:36 <biz> Only thing better is moisture cure but hardly anyone uses that anymore
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <biz> Alcohol carrier
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <086> the finish is a matte like look
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <biz> Good stuff
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <biz> I think synteko is popular there
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <086> worse
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:35 <biz> Oh damn
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:34 <biz> Smell like oil base paint or way worse?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:34 <086> reminds me of shellac
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:34 <biz> Hmm maybe they used swedish finish
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:34 <086> the after odor it ughhhhhhhhh
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <biz> And hopefully they used a 2comp water finish
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <086> was initially over 6k
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <086> that was the final price
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <biz> Usually stain is an upcharge for most companies
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <086> i really wanted u to do it
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:33 <biz> Hopefully they got a discount after going natural
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:32 <biz> Premium pricing
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:32 <086> that seems right 900 sq feeters
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:32 <086> 4 areas in total, the largest i think is 20x20 then two areas about 10x15, and then one smaller area about 10x10
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:31 <biz> I thought you said 900 feets
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:31 <086> i forget the sq footage, but it wasnt that huge of a job
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <biz> Oil poly perhaps
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <biz> I wonder what finish they used
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <biz> Opens the grain and makes it take stain more evenly
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <086> bout $5500 iirc was the final bil
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <biz> Just gotta water pop
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:30 <biz> Maple is great especially when old but if you can pull it off it looks amazing
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:29 <086> thats exactly what they wanted for darkness!!
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:29 <biz>
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:29 <086> it looks nice being light, but the dark wouldve been badasser looking
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:29 <086> the person caved and opt'd out of the stain.........
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:29 <biz> It should go to an album
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <086> i said it could be done and called bs on them to the person paying for the job
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <biz> Yap
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <086> fb link?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <biz> maple stained coffee brown
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <086> it ended up being maple
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <biz> Check that link VVV
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:28 <086> no one influenced the sme nor workers to which tpye it could be as i or the paying person did not have any dog in that fight to know
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <biz> Busch league
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <biz> Jeeeeez
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <086> that is what i thought.
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <biz> But oak and maple is night and day
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <086> so the company said they cant stain it darker as it was in the quote and said they can only seal it and protect seal it
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:27 <biz> Not being able to tell between white or red oak? Sure.
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <biz> That's inexcusable
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <biz> Between oak and maple? Definitely
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <086> I expressed my confusion to the person paying for the work that "wouldnt the company know this beforehand (at the time of estimate) for which type of wood they'll be dealing with?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <biz> Gotta water pop it
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <biz> That's the maple we stained recently
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:26 <biz> https://www.facebook.com/18515241489...60559207351433
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:25 <086> so the company started the work and after the first pass of sanding it down, they called the peoples up and informed the stain is not doable as it is maple
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:25 <biz> Probably oak, maple is really hard to stain
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:24 <086> the company that got the job quoted it all out and that included the staining to darken it as desired
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:24 <biz> Oak is open grain, maple close grain
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:24 <biz> Mostly white oak around here
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:23 <biz> Probably oak, whether red or white idk because it's regional
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:23 <086> light colored ... i self thought it was oak, or worse case maple
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:23 <086> 2 1/4 it is.
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:23 <086> that part, i really didnt mind tho as then it would be too much on me if i were to guess that part wrong
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:22 <biz> 2 is pretty common
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:22 <086> i couldnt gage the type of wood tho
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:22 <086> narrow plank
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:22 <086> i measured the thickness in various places (lifted vents and found cable pass thru areas) & the average thickness of the wood floor was 3/4"
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:20 <086> so that was heard at least, and more sme's were called out for quotes/suggestions
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:20 <biz> Sucks I couldn't get on here I could have at least found someone in the area from the elite group on fb
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:20 <086> i expressed my discerns and that it needed more eyes on it all......
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:19 <086> the ones that initially evaluated or assessed it, said to tip it out and lay down new...
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:19 <086> soooo
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:19 <086> water damaged approx 20% of the area. being where it was at for damage, the entire floor would need to be redone or ripped out with either option taken....
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:18 <biz> Go on
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:18 <biz> Mmmmmmm ok
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:18 <biz> If it's not extensive it can be repaired
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:17 <086> un momento
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:17 <086> so heres the skinny on it......
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:17 <086> i did suggest having the floor evaluated by many companies before settling on having it ripped out tho
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:17 <biz> Refinished as in just put another coat on it?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:17 <086> i dont get off into that type of work. I leave that to ya pros
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:16 <086> however, the sme that physically looked at the floor determined it was able to be refinished as it wasnt deemed ruined beyond repair (water damage)
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:15 <biz> You diy?
Avatar 18/02/2018 22:15 <biz> I guess that means both
