Our custom builder's painting crew went ahead and applied a hi gloss polyurethane to our formerly beautiful new oak stairs and railings without consulting us first. To me, they're ruined. I hate hi gloss anything. My wife and I had planned on a satin finish over the stain. We had not discussed it at all with the builder. He just went a head and did it. We don't know why they did this. Here's the question...
What are my options for fixing this? I anticipate some pushback from my builder when we talk this week(he probabluy OK'd it!). Can a satin be easily applied over a gloss without much hassle? Will steel wool, then satin work? Any ammunition would be greatly appreciated.
