Solid Wood Flooring Stair Nosing - One question I've been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? Many folks realize that original floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to produce a finished flooring that is lovely, with a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing, but what things to do.
You must determine it is wood, & most importantly what type of flooring you have. I'm afraid the sole option would be to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it is essentially a wood effect print stuck using a lacquer on top to an MDF or plywood board, sanding it destroy the floor and would sand the paint off.
There are just two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the good thing and engineered and solid wood flooring is, both refurbished and can be sanded to look as new as the day. As it's an identical construction engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to a foundation of MDF or ply board, due to its construction and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also stays really flat.
Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and will necessarily cost more to buy, but for me, it isn't as good engineered as it is more vulnerable to warping.
