How's it going I must thank everyone whom gave me tips on laying my floor, I just recently layed a 16,000 sq ft floor with a two man crew subfloor and all over concrete, which turned out great, but any who. We just coated our floor which I mean by that is with urethane the thing is we did it with 6 inch lamb or sheeps whole applicators I can't remember which one, but can you imagine 16,000 sq ft with only 6inch applicator and doing several coats. Is there an easier method or a bigger applicator the people down where I live aren't very helpful

Arrow Large painter's brush

I read in a book about hardwood floor finishing. The author used a large brush about 14" long with an angled handle on the top, like a broom for applying the finish on to floor. That's what I will try to use on my new Brazilian cherry floor in a couple of weeks.

Welcome back. It took me awhile, but now I recall your last post. Are you sure you're not off by one digit on the square footage? I've seen 5 and maybe 8,000 SF of hardwood but 16,000? Call in a professional, unless you're satisified with your results?

If you reside in the sticks, you can probably find some qualified finishers at http://www.woodfloors.org while clicking on member locations. ct has the right idea if you're still considering a diy job.

Yeah Thats the footage

It is a big floor, it actually was a little bigger then planned. But Yeah we already put 3 coats on, and it is as smooth as can be, I was just hoping that when we do decide to apply it again, I can get a larger applicator then 6" if you know what I mean.
