Welcome to our Dri-Fast Stain Selection page. We have uploaded the official stain chart below. These stains are oil based and are pre-mixed.
Dri-Fast Stain Color Options
During the Refinish process you will have the option to change the color of your hardwood Floor.
We have broken down the stain colors into four categories making your Stain experience much easier. Metropolitan, Essentials, Classic and Naturals Collections are in order of difficulty, and prices will vary depending on the stain color group you choose. All Dri-Fast Stain colors can be mixed and blended creating a unique stain color every time. If you would like to see hardwood stain samples on both red and white oak in person, you may visit our 2,000sf hardwood floor showroom in Cary, NC. Given we are chosen to be your contractor, you will have the option to pre-select three stain colors. On day 1 of sanding we will apply all three stain colors you pre-selected on your home under your true lighting. From experience this is the best way to choose a stain color before committing to staining the entire floor.
For more active homes or commercial settings we recommend our 5 coat Sanding & Refinishing package.
This additional coat is an additional cost but is worth the extra protection on your floor.
This process will also add an additional work day.
Water pop opens more pours on the surface of the hardwood. This allows more stain to penetrate giving you a deeper, richer color every time. We recommend water popping your dark browns and blacks to achieve the beautiful saturated look.
Although water popping takes more time and money to complete its the only way to achieve this deep saturated look often associated with prefinished hardwood floors. In the picture below you can see a dark and light contrast of the same stain color. Obviously the darker stain is water popped. Which do you prefer?
