I had Oak Floorboards (4mm / 15mm Raw Engineered) installed recently
They were sanded and finished over the weekend (17th and 18th Dec) … on the 18th they were polished / varnished.
It was very hot that day. (34C+)
I'm thinking that maybe the heat negatively affected the quality of the finish.
The finish my wife chose was a clear water-based SATIN finish.
To my eyes, there is an 'orange peel' effect, and the finish looks uneven.
It's not super obvious, but some parts of the floor look different to others, or at least it doesn't look smooth to me.
My wife thinks it looks fine, and she says she didn't notice it until I pointed it out. She even said "that's how it's meant to look."
However it was one of the first things I noticed when I went to the house yesterday.
We are going to contact the flooring guy and get him to come out and inspect it, however I wanted to get opinions first on whether this is a big deal, or 'normal' for satin finishes.
Please check out the image, tell me if I'm imagining things or if the quality of the final product looks a bit strange.
If so, is there anything that can be done to fix it?
