Engineered Wood Flooring Stair Nose - One question I have been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring industry is; can my old wooden floor that is fitted refurbished and be sanded? A lot of people understand what things to do with a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, although that original floor boards or parquet floors could be sanded back to make a finished floor that is wonderful.
You have to learn that it's wood, & most importantly what type of floor you have. I'm afraid the only alternative is to replace it in case your floor is a wood effect laminate then. Laminate flooring comes in varying level of quality, but most of the time it's essentially a wood effect print stuck with a lacquer on top to an MDF or plywood board, sanding it would only sand off the paint and ruin the floor.
There are two types of wooden flooring that is fitted; the great news and solid and engineered wood flooring is, both refurbished and might be sanded to look as new as the day. As it features a similar construction, engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, usually between 3-5 mm bonded to a foundation of ply or MDF board, because that it is fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its construction, it also stays really level.
Solid wood flooring certainly will inevitably cost more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but for me, it is not as great engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
