Organic Wood Flooring - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? Most people realize that parquet floors or original floor boards can be sanded back to create a lovely finished floor, but things to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing.
Firstly you need to learn which kind of floor you might have, & most importantly that it is wood. I am afraid the sole alternative would be to replace it if your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two kinds of wooden flooring that is fitted; engineered and solid wood flooring and the great news is, both might be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. Engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate as it features a similar construction. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 millimeters bonded to your foundation of ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, it also remains really flat.
Solid wood flooring will necessarily cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as good a product as engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
