Grey Colored Wood Floors - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted refurbished and be sanded? A lot of people know that parquet floors or first floor boards can be sanded back to make a lovely finished floor, but what to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing.
Firstly you must learn that it's wood, and most importantly what type of floor you might have. If your floor is a wood effect laminate then I am afraid the only alternative would be to replace it.
There are just two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring as well as the good thing is, both refurbished and can be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate as it features a similar building. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to some foundation of either ply or MDF board, due to its building and that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove, it also remains very flat.
Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but for me, it's not as good engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
