Default Sealer for wood floor

What is a good finish that will minimize scratches on a wood floor?
Is polyurethane a good choice?


Thanks,
Andy

One designated for floor use, yes.

Any finish will scratch. You need to remove the cause.

Polyurethane is pretty much standard at this point. Another factor in
reducing the inevitable scratch's objectionable appearance is the
sheen of the finish. High gloss floors show scratches much more than a
satin finish polyurethane. Whether that's a tradeoff that you will
want to make is a personal preference.

What is going to sctatch it, 10 dogs or one person being carefull. If
10 dogs maybe a 6 coats of a 2 part commercial epoxy, if only
yourself, you worry to much.

That would be overkill.
