Flush Wooden Floor Registers - One question I have already 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? Several people have a wooden floor in their own house which has been down for 6-10 years which is appearing tired, dull, has scratches or spots in and has definitely seen better days. Most people realize that parquet floors or first floor boards may be sanded back to make a lovely finished flooring, but what to do using a fitted wooden flooring is a little more confusing.
Firstly you need to learn that it's wood, & most importantly which type of flooring you've got. I'm afraid the sole option would be to replace it if your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two forms of fitted wooden flooring; the good news as well as solid and engineered wood flooring 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 can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring has a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to some foundation of either MDF or ply board, because that it is fitted together with a tongue and groove and of its building, it also remains quite level.
This implies if sanded accurately you need to just need to sand off significantly less than the usual millimeter, so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times If your floor is solid wood flooring it will have an extremely similar look to engineered on the surface, but nevertheless, it will be assembled entirely of just one piece of wood in the top layer of the foundation. Solid wood flooring certainly will necessarily cost a lot more to buy and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it isn't as great engineered as it is more inclined to warping.
