Wood Flooring Repairs Plymouth - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? Many people realize that parquet floors or first floor boards could be sanded back to make a wonderful finished flooring, but things to do with a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing.
You must determine what sort of flooring you might have, and most importantly it is wood. I am afraid the only real alternative would be to replace it, if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two kinds of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring and also the good news is, both can be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it includes the same building, engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 millimeters bonded to some base of MDF or ply board, because of its building and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, additionally, it remains quite flat.
Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as good engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
