refinishing job - poor workmanship??

Good morning,
I'm hoping you can provide me with some tips. We justr had our engineered hardwood floors refinished. On the first day, the floors were sanded and one oil based polyurethane coat was applied. On the second day, they were here working for 45 min - 1 hr. We have 650 sq feet of floor and I hardly think that anyone would be able to sand / buff and apply the second coat in that amt of time. Is there any way to tell?
When looking at the floor at an angle and in the proper lighting, I noticed spots. It looks as though something was spilled or dripped. I also notice "ripples". Some of the "ripples" care only seen and others can be felt. Those that can be felt, are more like "waves". Is this common?
Thank you in advance for your time.
Sincerely, Bonnie Esposito

Hi, After sanding perfect cleaning is a MUST! I mean absolute clean surface free from sand dust. Vacuuming is not enough. Sounds like they rushed the job.

Did you get the cheapest bid, I ask because 2 coats are never enough to expect a floor to last long, two coats in high traffic might need sanding to wood again in 2- 4 years. The first coat doesnt even truely seal completly, so little prep- sanding can be done at all for the second. To me 3 is minimum, 5 and it will last a long time. I have 7 built up, first was 5, then 2 after it dulled down 10 yrs later. But no, you should see no defects in what they did, you paid for a finished floor. Maybe negoate a deal on a 3rd, you need it anyway.
