Wood Grain Ceramic Floor Tiles - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Lots of people have a wooden floor inside their house that's been down for 6-10 years which is appearing tired, lifeless, has stains or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. A lot of folks realize what to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, although that first floor boards or parquet floors can be sanded back to create a finished floor that is lovely.
You must discover what sort of floor you have, and most importantly that it's wood. I'm afraid the only real option would be to replace it in case your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring along with the good news is, both refurbished and can be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it features the same construction, engineered wooden flooring will often 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 MDF or ply board, because of its construction and that it is fitted together with a tongue and groove, additionally, it stays very flat.
This implies if sanded right you ought to only need to sand off less than the usual millimeter, or so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times In Case your floor is solid wood flooring it will possess a similar look to engineered at first glance, but it'll be assembled completely of one piece of wood in the top layer of the foundation. Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but for me, it is not as good a product as engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
