Floating Wood Floor Transition Strips - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? A lot of people have a wooden floor in their own house that's been down for 6-10 years that is appearing tired, dull, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. A lot of folks realize what to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, although that first floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to make a finished floor that is lovely.
Firstly you should discover what sort of floor you have, & most importantly that it is wood. In case your floor is a wood effect laminate then I am afraid the only real alternative would be to replace it.
There are two kinds of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring and the good thing is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it includes a similar construction engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to your base of either ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its construction, additionally, it stays very level.
This implies if sanded right you need to just need to sand off less than the usual millimeter, therefore the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times In Case your floor is solid wood flooring it is going to have a very similar appearance to engineered at first glance, but nevertheless, it'll be constructed entirely of one piece of wood in the face of the base. Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as good a product as engineered as it's more prone to warping.
