If we could use one word to describe Basic Coatings Easy Street finish, it would be…well, easy!
This finish is virtually waste-free, quick to dry, and environmentally friendly. That’s a pretty powerful trio.
Let’s take a more in-depth look into what makes Easy Street a truly unique hardwood floor finish:
This is a single-component finish, which saves you a ton of time and money in the long run. A single-component finish renders an external catalyst unnecessary. This leaves less room for mistakes like a contaminated or poorly mixed finish.
Basic Coatings Easy Street also has an unlimited pot life, which means no more wasted finish! Click here to learn more about Easy Street.
Because Easy Street is water-based, it is quick to dry and cure. It also has some aesthetic and environmental advantages.
Since this is a water-based finish, the application is quick. You only have to wait about two to three hours between each coat of Easy Street, and the finish only takes about seven days to fully cure.
You can open up the floor to light foot traffic and furniture replacement after 24 hours, so you’ll have a functional floor rather quickly when you use Easy Street.
On the aesthetic side of things, water-based finishes dry clear, which allows the natural beauty of the wood to show through the finish. A water-based finish is also great to use if you plan to stain the floors, because it reduces the chance of a color conflict between the finish and the hardwood floor stain.
Low VOCs = happy environment, happy lungs
The Easy Street formula has low VOCs. This means that it doesn’t give off the strong fumes that oil-based polyurethane finishes do because it contains less harsh chemicals. Using a water-based finish is healthier for you, your customers, and the environment.
Because of its low VOC count, Easy Street is especially great to use if you’re working around vulnerable populations like school children, or if you have customers who specifically want an eco-friendly finish.
Don’t be fooled: the low VOC count doesn’t mean that this finish is unreliable. Easy Street provides the durability that you’d expect out of any high-quality finish.

Basic.coatings website says that easy street can be used as a sealer. The gallon can does not confirm this. Have you used it as a sealer and what was the process if so time to cure etc…
We have used Easy Street as sealer and Basic does support it. No more than 2 coats in a day. Wait a minimum of 3-4 hours with good ventilation to apply 2nd coat. Often we wait to next day to apply the 2nd and third coat. When doing this we buff with sand dollar (yellow) or 3M SSP maroon pad.
