Light Hard Wood Floors - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor refurbished and be sanded? A lot of people realize that first floor boards or parquet floors may be sanded back to make a finished flooring that is lovely, having a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing, but what things to do.
You need to determine that it is wood, and most importantly what type of flooring you have. I am afraid the sole option would be to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying level of quality, but most of the time it is basically a wood effect print stuck to either an MDF or plywood plank using a lacquer on top, sanding it ruin the floor and would only sand off the paint.
There are two kinds of fitted wooden flooring; solid and engineered wood flooring and the good thing is, both refurbished and can be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. As it features an identical building engineered wooden flooring will often be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 millimeters bonded to some foundation of either ply or MDF board, because that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove and of its building, additionally, it stays very level.
Solid wood flooring will inevitably cost a lot more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it's not as great a product as engineered as it is more prone to warping.
