What are some ways to stain Hardwood?
As you know Staining your Hardwood Floor is a vast subject requiring a lot of research and knowledge and experience..some beyond my paygrade. I will say this that I will try my best.
From the contractor point of view
practices between contractors. Some absolutely love to stain Hardwood Flooring, they are good at it and they are able to offer custom colors to customers giving them the effect of very exotic Hardwood Species, and they are able to charge appropriately for their work. Other unfortunately hate staining Hardwood Floors, they see it as a hassle and a common source of complaints from their customers. Either way all reputable contractors should be very proficient at Staining.
