Best Rated Wood Flooring - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? A lot of people have a wooden floor inside their house that's been down for 6-10 years which is appearing tired, dull, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many people know that parquet floors or first floor boards can be sanded back to create a wonderful finished floor, but what to do using a fitted wooden floor is a little more confusing.
Firstly you should discover it is wood, & most importantly which kind of floor you have. I am afraid the only alternative would be to replace it in case your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; solid and engineered wood flooring and the great news is, both may be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it features the same building engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, typically between 3-5 mm bonded to some base of either MDF or ply board, because that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its building, it also stays really level.
Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost more to buy and is more expensive to make, but for me, it's not as great engineered as it's more inclined to warping.
