Glue Or Nail Down Wood Floor - 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? Most people realize that first floor boards or parquet floors might be sanded back to produce a finished floor that is lovely, using a fitted wooden floor is a bit more confusing, but what things to do.
You need to learn what kind of floor you have, & most importantly it is wood. I am afraid the only real alternative would be to replace it if your floor is a wood effect laminate then.
There are just two types of fitted wooden flooring; engineered and solid wood flooring and the good news is, both refurbished and might be sanded to look as new as the day they were fitted. Engineered wooden flooring can occasionally be mistaken for laminate as it has the same construction. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 millimeters bonded to your foundation of either ply or MDF board, because of its construction and that it's fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also stays really level.
This means if sanded accurately you need to just have to sand off significantly less than the usual millimeter, so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times In Case your floor is solid wood flooring it is going to have an extremely similar appearance to engineered on the surface, but it will likely be built entirely of one piece of wood from the surface of the foundation. Solid wood flooring is more expensive to make and certainly will necessarily cost a lot more to buy, but in my opinion, it is not as great engineered as it's more vulnerable to warping.
