Wood Floors Omaha - One question I've been asked time and again on the years working in the wood flooring business is; can my old fitted wooden floor be sanded and refurbished? Lots of people have a wooden floor in their own house which has been down for 6-10 years that is appearing tired, boring, has spots or scratches in and has definitely seen better days. Many folks realize things to do with a fitted wooden flooring is a bit more confusing, although that original floor boards or parquet floors can be sanded back to create a finished flooring that is wonderful.
Firstly you should find out which kind of flooring you've got, & most importantly that it's wood. I'm afraid the only real alternative would be to replace it, in case your flooring is a wood effect laminate then.
There are two forms of wooden flooring that is fitted; the great news and also solid and engineered wood flooring is, both can be sanded and refurbished to look as new as the day. As it has a similar construction engineered wooden flooring can sometimes be mistaken for laminate. Engineered wood flooring includes a thin layer of real wood, generally between 3-5 mm bonded to your base of ply or MDF board, due to its construction and that it is fitted together using a tongue and groove, it also stays really flat.
This means if sanded correctly you should only need to sand off less when compared to a millimeter, or so the floor can usually be sanded up to 3 times In Case your floor is solid wood flooring it is going to have a very similar look to engineered at first glance, but it will likely be constructed completely of just one piece of wood in the face of the base. Solid wood flooring will necessarily cost more to purchase and is more expensive to make, but in my opinion, it is not as great a product as engineered as it's more inclined to warping.
