Wood Flooring Spokane Valley Wa - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted refurbished and be sanded? Several people have a wooden floor in their own house that's been down for 6-10 years that is looking tired, dull, has scratches or stains in and has definitely seen better days. Most folks realize that parquet floors or first floor boards might be sanded back to create a wonderful finished flooring, but things to do with a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing.
You have to discover which type of flooring you have, & most importantly that it is wood. I'm afraid the only option would be to replace it, if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two types of fitted wooden flooring; engineered and solid wood flooring and the good news is, both refurbished and may be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it includes 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 ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it is fitted together with a tongue and groove, additionally, it stays really level.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and certainly will inevitably cost more to buy, but for me, it's not as great a product as engineered as it's more prone to warping.
