Q: I just installed Brazilian cherry floors, which were sealed with Duraseal semi-gloss ployurethane by the floor guy. The painter then sealed the Brazilian cherry handrails and stair treads with Magnalac satin lacquer.
I wanted the stairs to match the floor in terms of sheen. The painter said not to worry because the products are different, he’ll simply put a coat of semi-gloss over the satin, which should match things up. Is that true?
The satin staircase is duller than the floor!
A: It’s true. If another coat is applied to the stairs in the same sheen as the floors it will match.by
