Walk On Wood Flooring Schaumburg - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Several people have a wooden floor in their own house that has been down for 6-10 years that is looking tired, dull, has stains or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many folks realize that original floor boards or parquet floors can be sanded back to produce a finished floor that is wonderful, having a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, but things to do.
Firstly you have to determine that it's wood, & most importantly which kind of floor you've got. I am afraid the only real alternative is to replace it in case your floor is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it is basically a wood effect print stuck with a lacquer on top to an MDF or plywood board, sanding it would sand off the paint and destroy the floor.
There are two forms of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring along with the good news is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it's an identical construction engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 millimeters bonded to some foundation of either ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, additionally, it stays very level.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will inevitably cost a lot more to buy, but for me, it is not as great engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
