Hello everyone, I just finished laying down the first coat of Bona HD satin and I changed my mind on the sheen. Now want it semi-gloss. How do you feel abut just put another coat or two of Bona HD semigloss over the satin coat or, should I save the money and time, strip the floor right away, and redcoat the whole floor with the desired sheen? I could probably do a sample test and see but I wanted your opinion as well. Thank you.

You can coat a fresh finish coat with minor prep and get a shinier gloss. I think that the reason that some water-based finishes are on the lower luster side is because even though the water-based finishes are tough, they are not quite as hard, so scuffing dulls the finish and dull finish "looks better" when it starts out with a lower luster to begin with. This is the reason that some contractors recommend coating every two years or so depending on usage.
A tough finish does not wear off as easily as a brittle finish. Studies show the water-based two component finish will wear longer than regular oil based poly-urethane.
You can have a nice coat of finish that gets dull, but still has the protection from wear and moisture that a film type finish requires.
