: I am adding wood floors to our newer home, and the staircase is oak and has never been stained, but has a finish on it. I want to put a stain on the floors and I want to stain the staircase to match. I think it has a polyurethane finish on it. Would this product work? I just had an estimate for 1650.00 to refinish the banisters. Of course, he would also match the stain perfectly. I would much rather do it myself. Help!
If it is polyurethane on the wood, the stain will not take, you will have to rent a small stripper just for stairs, once you have the poly off the stain should take. I do not think it is polyurethan though, most people do not put that on stairs because of the fall risk.
You might want to test the top stair first.
Let me know what happens, yes I am a woman but I have refinished a 5,000 square foot historic home. I wish you the best. Let me know how it goes.
