Default Painting Hardwood Floors

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to see if anyone has painted hardwood floors before?
I bid n a kitchen with dark, factory finished floors and and I'm mulling over the best way to proceed.
Do i (a) Sand off all the finish, vac. and finish with 2 coats of Breakthrough?
(b) same as above but with an oil primer first
(c) use a chemical de-glosser?

Thanks in Advance

Prime. always prime.

Also, a deglosser is not really for hardwood. It can be, but not reccomended.

Go with any primer, and always use a dark color, a bright color looks stupid.

I really think you've got the idea already!

Yes I've been doing it all my life. so don't argue

Do they make special primers for this application? I have always been told that normal oil and latex primers are too soft a product to be put under foot, and under a harder floor coating.

No i don't think so... but i will have to dissagree with the fact that oil based primers are too soft. Actually it depends, if you put on a nice 2 coats of primer, and paint 2 coats, you will have a buetiful floor, thats durable.

Oil based ones like these: http://www.realoakfloors.co.uk/junckers_pro_seal.php

are good only if you apply 2 coats, and paint 2 times. It will work guarantee it.
