Finishing Wood Floors Without Sanding - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? Many people know that parquet floors or first floor boards can be sanded back to create a wonderful finished floor, but things to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing.
You have to determine it is wood, and most importantly which kind of floor you have. I am afraid the sole option would be to replace it, if your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two types of fitted wooden flooring; the good news along with engineered and solid wood flooring is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it includes a similar construction, engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 millimeters bonded to a foundation of either ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, additionally, it stays very flat.
Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as great engineered as it's more prone to warping.
