Pine Floors Have Turned Orange?

We finished a southern pine floor with clear, oil based semi-gloss varathane. We wanted the floor to stay a natural color, but they have turned orangey. How could we have prevented this orange color? Should we have used some kind of base coat first, or should we have used a completely different finishing product? We have more floors to finish and we don't want the same thing to happen to them.

To prevent this you should have used a water based polyurethane. It is non-yellowing. I hate to tell you this but the finish you put on will have to be removed.

Any pine product that I know of turns golden yellow and even darker sometimes with age and sunlight.

themuffster and Laniegirl,

Thanks for the posts. I thought maybe a water based polyurethane would be the answer. However, I read in a finishing book that there are some waterbased finishes that will react with the tannin in the wood and cause weird discolorations.

Therefore I am worried about which product to choose. There are so many different products out there and, according to the article I read, they all have their own unique compositions.
