Epoxy coatings offer versatile customization options, allowing our clients to achieve their desired aesthetic result.

Polyurethane Sealants

Polyurethane sealants are highly versatile coatings known for their ability to protect and enhance the appearance of surfaces. At New Finish, we utilize polyurethane sealants to provide durable and aesthetically pleasing finishes for a variety of refinishing projects. These sealants create a durable barrier that shields surfaces from scratches, stains, and moisture damage, helping to prolong their lifespan and maintain their integrity over time. Polyurethane sealants offer excellent resistance to UV damage, making them ideal for use on outdoor surfaces such as decks, patios, and fences.

Acrylic Finishes

Acrylic finishes are versatile coatings widely used in refinishing projects due to their durability, versatility, and ease of application. At New Finish, we leverage the benefits of acrylic finishes to provide high-quality and long-lasting results for our clients’ surfaces. Additionally, the low odor formulation of acrylic finishes makes them suitable for use in indoor environments where air quality and occupant comfort are a priority. With routine cleaning and proper care, acrylic-finished surfaces can maintain their beauty and integrity for years to come, reducing the need for costly repairs and replacements.

Choosing the Right Material for Your Refinishing Project

Selecting the appropriate material is essential for achieving the desired results in your refinishing project. At New Finish, we understand the importance of choosing the right material to ensure durability, aesthetic appeal, and long-term satisfaction. Here’s how to choose the right material for your refinishing project:


Consider the Surface Type


Different surfaces require different types of materials for refinishing. For example, epoxy coatings are suitable for surfaces like bathtubs, countertops, and floors, while polyurethane sealants are ideal for protecting wood surfaces such as cabinets and furniture. Consider the material of the surface you’re refinishing and choose a compatible refinishing material accordingly.


Assess Durability Requirements


Evaluate the level of durability required for your project. If the surface is exposed to heavy use or harsh conditions, such as kitchen countertops or bathroom floors, opt for durable materials like epoxy coatings or acrylic finishes that offer superior resistance to scratches, stains, and moisture damage. For surfaces that require less durability, such as decorative furniture or accent pieces, you may opt for less robust materials like latex paints or decorative finishes.


Evaluate Aesthetic Preferences


Consider your aesthetic preferences and the desired look and feel of the finished surface. Different materials offer various finishes, textures, and sheens, allowing for customization to match your design vision. Whether you prefer a glossy, matte, or textured finish, choose a material that aligns with your aesthetic preferences and complements the overall style of your space.


Seek Professional Guidance


If you’re unsure about which material is best suited for your refinishing project, don’t hesitate to seek professional guidance. Consult with experienced refinishing professionals like those at New Finish who can assess your needs, provide expert recommendations, and ensure that you choose the right material for your specific project requirements.

Incorporating Advanced Techniques for Superior Results in Refinishing

At New Finish, we believe in blending traditional refinishing skills with advanced techniques to achieve superior results. Our approach involves utilizing the latest innovations in the field to enhance the quality, durability, and aesthetic appeal of our refinishing projects.

Advanced Surface Preparation

We leverage high-tech equipment for surface preparation, such as orbital sanders and dust extraction systems. This not only speeds up the process but also ensures a more consistent and smoother surface, crucial for an excellent finish. Dustless sanding technology is particularly important, as it maintains a cleaner work environment and reduces the risk of imperfections in the final finish.

UV Curing Technology

One of the cutting-edge techniques we employ is UV curing. This technology allows finishes to cure instantly under UV light, significantly reducing drying time. This is particularly beneficial for commercial projects where time is of the essence. UV curing also results in a harder, more durable finish, making it ideal for surfaces that see heavy use.

Infrared Drying Systems

Infrared drying systems are another advanced technique that we utilize. Unlike traditional drying methods, infrared systems speed up the curing process by directly heating the finish. This method is efficient and can be precisely controlled, ensuring a consistent quality of the cured finish.

Automated Spraying Technology

For large-scale projects or surfaces with complex geometries, we use automated spraying technology. This ensures even coverage and a flawless finish, especially in hard-to-reach areas or intricate designs. Automated systems are also more efficient, reducing waste and ensuring a uniform application of the finish.

Custom Color Mixing and Matching

Utilizing technology for precise color mixing and matching, we can create custom colors that meet our clients’ specific requirements. This not only ensures a unique and personalized finish but also guarantees consistency across different batches.

Eco-Friendly Materials and Practices

In our commitment to sustainability, we adopt eco-friendly materials and practices. This includes using low-VOC finishes and recycling waste materials wherever possible. Our approach is not only better for the environment but also ensures a safer and healthier workspace.
