Wood Floor Truss Span - 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 folks realize things to do using a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, although that first floor boards or parquet floors may be sanded back to make a finished floor that is wonderful.
Firstly you should learn it is wood, and most importantly which type of floor you have. In case your floor is a wood effect laminate then I am afraid the sole alternative would be to replace it. Laminate flooring comes in varying level of quality, but most of the time it is basically a wood effect print stuck to either an MDF or plywood board using a lacquer on top, sanding it ruin the floor and would sand off the paint.
There are two kinds of fitted wooden flooring; the great news and also engineered and solid wood flooring is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it includes an identical construction, engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to a base of either ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove, additionally, it remains quite level.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will inevitably cost more to buy, but in my opinion, it is not as good engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
