Attic Wood Flooring Panels - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? A lot of people have a wooden floor inside their house that has been down for 6-10 years which is looking tired, boring, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many people know that first floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is wonderful, having a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing, but things to do.
You have to find out that it is wood, and most importantly what sort of flooring you have. I am afraid the only option would be to replace it, in case your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the good thing along with engineered and solid wood flooring is, both might be sanded and refurbished 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 mm bonded to some foundation of ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, additionally, it stays very flat.
Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as good engineered as it is more inclined to warping.
