We got the living-room floor finished last New Years (there abouts) and I finally got to the dining-room floor and finished the second half of it just before we left for our vacation. It had been over 10 days since I put the top coat on before we left so we could have put the furniture back but decided to wait and let it cure a couple of more weeks while we were gone.
One of the first things I noticed when I came through the door when returning home was the shine difference between the two halves of the floor. I used Waterlox Original and it dulls a good bit as it cures. It always starts out looking really shiny but then it cures to a medium sheen in about 2 weeks. It should be almost completely cured by now but the shine is way too shiny. The last coat of the one side had come from a new gallon I opened. I’m a bit depressed as I took such care putting on that last top coat. I’m going to have to put another top coat from that same gallon on the other half of the floor to be sure they match. It is extra work and requires moving all that furniture again. I think I’ll contact the company and ask “what’s up with that?!”
