So far no sign of asbestos. It was a concern, and you have to be prepared to abate it.

We did have to address some asbestos issues prior to the home purchase.

With a home from 1929 and original EVERYTHING, nothing is easy but is a fun journey. One step at a time...

I hope you'll post some picture of the refinished floor. I love old homes that have been restored!

Do you have photos showing the nail holes in the pine? Add a coin for scale.

In 1929, it was common for the public rooms to get the expensive wood and the other rooms to get less expensive wood. Even farther back, expensive wood would be used around the perimeter of a room while pine was used in the center where it was covered up by a rug.

I believe it is DuraSeal Provincial. Keep in mind that those are historic heart pine floors, so different hardwoods (like oak) stained that color, won't look the same

I don't have the same floor, mine is 1920's 2.25" pine. Here's what "dark walnut" and "coffee" look like, stained on a small area.

I wanted to go dark to minimize the nail holes. I guess we will have to experiment to see what color the pine decides it wants to become.

My floor refinisher showed me sample boards of the 2 colors mentioned above on Oak, and there is ZERO similarity among pine vs oak using the same stain. Fascinating.

I am hoping to restore this pine, but am nervous about what is hiding under the old oak blocks. Fingers crossed!

Thank you!

We are going to hire a pro to sand all the 2nd floor pine floors and re-finish, including the room with the wax finish. The hope is we can save the floors living underneath the parquet in the other rooms.

I want to select a dark stain that is a little deeper than all the doors/trim (see pic), and wasn't sure what a classic stain color would be. The house is a 1920s Tudor.

I'm ok with board variations but the term "splotchiness" scared me a bit. We had red oak refinished in our old house and I don't know what to expect the pine.

Thanks!

Here's a sample area of the pine using "dark walnut" and "coffee." It looks like there will be nail holes to contend with from the parquet blocks we are removing.

Does anyone have experience with pine & nails? I don't want Swiss Cheese inspired black dots everywhere.

I also am interested in suggestions to reduce the "yellow/orange" from the pine, but my floor guy said it is very hard to control the color, it's whatever the floors will give off after the stain is absorbed.

Last question, is 3 coats of poly standard for pine? I don't want it too shiny.

Thanks!

Hi, They are not pine floors. It was a site-finished red or white oak. It was a dark brown stain colour but I no longer have the details of the specific stain colour used.
