The hardest wearing timber floor finish as used
by most proffesional floor finishers is called
"Moisture-Cure Polyurethane". Altho it's primarily
an industrial product you'll find it at most good
paint or hardware stores in flat, satin or gloss.
3 coats is normal butI would suggest 4 coats on
high traffic areas like stairs.

It's a little harder to use than normal and smells
terrible but will outlast normal poly finishs by miles.

To keep the color as light as possible ask for a
timber sealer that is OK on oak and under Moisture
Cure Poly. The sealer stops the polyurethane from
absorbing into the grain maintaning a more natural
