Engineered Wood Flooring White Washed Oak - One question I've been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Lots of people have a wooden floor in their house that's been down for 6-10 years which is appearing tired, lifeless, has scratches or spots in and has definitely seen better days. Many folks know that parquet floors or original floor boards might be sanded back to produce a wonderful finished floor, but what to do having a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing.
You should determine that it is wood, & most importantly what type of floor you might have. I am afraid the sole option would be to replace it in case your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two types of fitted wooden flooring; the great news and also engineered and solid wood flooring is, both refurbished and might be sanded to look as new as the day. As it has the same building engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to your foundation of either MDF or ply board, due to its building and that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove, additionally, it remains very flat.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and certainly will inevitably cost a lot more to purchase, but in my opinion, it is not as great a product as engineered as it is more prone to warping.
