we're installing new pine boards for upstairs floor in old house and want easy application, easy upkeep finish--don't mind a slightly distressed look but do need decent protection. we're considering penetrating oil rather than surface sealer. waterlox is not availabe here but deftoil products and tried and true finishes are. any thoughts, feedback, horror stories or recommendations. thanks, james 3067

Pine is a very soft wood so be prepared for alot of maintenance.

Oil finishes for a flooring solution I dont really lik becasue they provide no real protection.

Oil finishes I only recommend for verticle surfaces and ornamentations.

Flooring will wear over time, so I would recommend going with the highest durability wear layer protection you can find for the minimal maintenance with the maximum protection.

You want a wear layer and oil finishes wont provide much of that.
