tung oil vs. poly finish for new wood floor?
I could use some advice, please, about what to put on new floors in my kitchen/bath/hall/bedroom remodel. It's an old house, so I'm staying with the old wide floorboards, but they are new 10" hard pine (yellow pine). The contractor wants to use 3 coats of tung oil as finish, but the rest of the house is polyurethane (some sort of minwax floor finish, I think). I'm mostly worried about water damage, but these will also be pretty high traffic areas. Advice about whether to use an oil finish or a poly?
