Wood Chair Glides For Tile Floors - One question I have already been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? Many people know that parquet floors or original floor boards might be sanded back to create a wonderful finished flooring, but things to do with a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing.
Firstly you need to discover which type of flooring you might have, and most importantly that it is wood. I'm afraid the sole option is to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two types of fitted wooden flooring; engineered and solid wood flooring as well as the good thing is, both refurbished and can be sanded to look as new as the day. Engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate as it includes a similar building. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to your base of ply or MDF board, because of its building and that it's fitted together with a tongue and groove, it also stays quite flat.
This means if sanded correctly you must only have to sand off less than the usual millimeter, or so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times If your floor is solid wood flooring it'll have an extremely similar appearance to engineered on the surface, but nevertheless, it will be assembled entirely of just one piece of wood in the top layer of the base. Solid wood flooring will inevitably cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as good engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
