Vinyl Flooring Vs Wood Laminate - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? A lot of people understand that original floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to make a finished flooring that is wonderful, using a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing, but things to do.
You need to determine that it is wood, and most importantly what sort of flooring you have. I'm afraid the sole alternative would be to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two types of fitted wooden flooring; the great news and also solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and might be sanded to look as new as the day. As it includes a similar construction engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 mm bonded to a foundation of either ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, additionally, it remains quite flat.
Solid wood flooring will necessarily cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but for me, it isn't as good a product as engineered as it is more prone to warping.
