Real Wood Floor Adhesive - One question I have been asked time and again over the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted be sanded and refurbished? Many people have a wooden floor inside their house that's been down for 6-10 years that's looking tired, dull, has scratches or stains in and has definitely seen better days. A lot of folks understand that parquet floors or first floor boards may be sanded back to make a wonderful finished floor, but things to do using a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing.
Firstly you need to determine which type of floor you have, and most importantly that it's wood. If your floor is a wood effect laminate then I'm afraid the sole option would be to replace it. Laminate flooring comes in varying degree of quality, but most of the time it's essentially a wood effect print stuck using a lacquer on top to either an MDF or plywood plank, sanding it'd sand the paint off and destroy the floor.
There are two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the good news and solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and could be sanded to look as new as the day. As it's a similar construction engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to a base of either ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also stays very level.
This implies if sanded right you should just have to sand off significantly less than a millimeter, therefore the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times If your floor is solid wood flooring it's going to have a very similar appearance to engineered on the surface, but nevertheless, it will be built entirely of one piece of wood in the face of the base. Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as great a product as engineered as it's more prone to warping.
