What type of floor finish is better for high traffic floors?

Tuesday’s Answer:

There is no single finish that will be better than others because much depends on the maintenance you can provide for the finish.

Will you be following a scrub and recoat program or will you be burnishing with a high speed machine?

Maybe you will be restoring the finish with a spray buff occasionally?

The finishes will differ according to the maintenance and some procedures are more labor intensive than others.
